Enhanced Network Stack (ENS)

Enhanced data path is a networking stack mode, which when configured

provides superior network performance. It is primarily targeted for NFV workloads, which requires the performance benefits provided by this mode. ENS utilizes DPDK Poll Mode driver model and significantly improves packet rate and latency for small message sizes.
