For example, rings less than 32, I send 400000 packets to server and pf_ring info in /proc shows there is 400000 packets in rings, but when rings greater than 32, I can get 800000 packets when 33 rings and 1200000 packets when 34 rings and so on.

That sounds like an issue with PF_Ring.  I would check their documentation and mailing list to see if they only support 32 rings.
