Description

When forcing the running mode to auto in one of the live capture mode, the threads configuration variable which can be used in af_packet or pfring is not honored. Only autofp or worker honor this variable.

This is or a bug or a documentation issue.

Initial message is hard to understand one month later: autofp and worker Live urnning mode have a ModThreadsCount parameter which is used to say how much threads are used per-device in af_packet and pf_ring. Auto does not have this mode and thus only start a thread for the auto mode.
