Gadgets is a collection of DPDK stand alone tools used to support VFd testing. This collection is technically a part of VFd (https://github.com/att/vfd), but is maintained in a separate repo because they can be useful on their own and the burden of pulling and building VFd just to have these tools is not needed.
Gobbler is a DPDK application which provides a simple packet receipt counting funciton with optional forwarding or return to sender modes. Gobbler opens one or more devices for input (Rx) and either duplicates the Rx devices for Tx, or opens one or more devices for transmission (Tx). Pakcets received are counted and dropped, or forwarded onto one of the Tx devices.
