DPDK is fast enough to process packets at almost line rate, but the pcap virtual interface used by DPDK still relies on libpcap and that relies on fwrite, which drops the capture rate to 13% on an XFS RAIDO array.

DPDK is not a suitable choice for packet capture as its pcap libraries rely on a single thread and sequential pcap_dump calls.
