Af_xdp option is disabled

Hi everyone,

af_xdp mode is enable by default. When I builded source code configuration’s output showed No. I followed latest document called “19.4. eBPF and XDP — Suricata 7.0.0-rc2-dev documentation”. What am I missing? Thanks.

You’re talking about suricata --build-info right? can you post that output?

What distribution are you using and what libxdp is installed?
I did a quck test and with libxdp 1.3.1 on ArchLinux being installed, the fresh ./configure did output AF_XDP begin enabled.

Which libxdp packages is available for ubuntu 20.04

19.4. eBPF and XDP — Suricata 7.0.0-rc2-dev documentation this document isn’t mention any libxdp package for ubuntu.

I don’t see any libxdp for Ubuntu LTS so far, see Ubuntu – Package Search Results -- libxdp

I builded libxdp from github source and copy file so files under to /usr/lib/ and run configure script but output was same. Have you any suggestion?

For ubuntu 20.04

GitHub - xdp-project/xdp-tools: Utilities and example programs for use with XDP
clone this repo and make libxdp_install. After that I configure suricata source code and af_xdp option was enabled.
