I am trying to set up a docker container running and simple linux bridge (bridge-utils) or dpdk l2fwd application. On the host machine I want to run an Open vSwitch which forwards the packets to the container itself. The OVS would run with dpdk on the physicall interfaces of the host and would use the OVS’s dpdk userspace-vhost to communicate with the container’s interfaces.
The scenario is similar to this: http://postimg.org/image/5zkykr0hx/
My question is that is it even possible to connect userspace vhost sockets to a docker container?
