The following sections describe optimizations used in the DPDK and optimizations that should be considered for a new applications.

They also highlight the performance-impacting coding techniques that should, and should not be, used when developing an application using the DPDK.

And finally, they give an introduction to application profiling using a Performance Analyzer from Intel to optimize the software.
