+MLX5 compress driver
+====================
+
+The MLX5 compress driver library
+(**librte_compress_mlx5**) provides support for **Mellanox BlueField 2**
+families of 25/50/100/200 Gb/s adapters.
+
+Design
+------
+
+This PMD is configuring the compress, decompress amd DMA engines.
+
+GGAs (Generic Global Accelerators) are offload engines that can be used
+to do memory to memory tasks on data.
+These engines are part of the ARM complex of the BlueField chip, and as
+such they do not use NIC related resources (e.g. RX/TX bandwidth).
+They do share the same PCI and memory bandwidth.
+
+So, using the BlueField device (starting from BlueField 2), the compress
+class operations can be supported in parallel to the net, vDPA and
+RegEx class operations.
+
+For security reasons and robustness, this driver only deals with virtual
+memory addresses. The way resources allocations are handled by the kernel,
+combined with hardware specifications that allow to handle virtual memory
+addresses directly, ensure that DPDK applications cannot access random
+physical memory (or memory that does not belong to the current process).
+
+The PMD uses libibverbs and libmlx5 to access the device firmware
+or directly the hardware components.
+There are different levels of objects and bypassing abilities
+to get the best performances:
+
+- Verbs is a complete high-level generic API.
+- Direct Verbs is a device-specific API.
+- DevX allows to access firmware objects.
+
+Enabling librte_compress_mlx5 causes DPDK applications to be linked against
+libibverbs.
+
+Mellanox mlx5 pci device can be probed by number of different pci devices,
+for example net / vDPA / RegEx. To select the compress PMD ``class=compress``
+should be specified as device parameter. The compress device can be probed and
+used with other Mellanox classes, by adding more options in the class.
+For example: ``class=net:compress`` will probe both the net PMD and the compress
+PMD.
+
+Features
+--------
+
+Compress mlx5 PMD has support for:
+
+Compression/Decompression algorithm:
+
+* DEFLATE.
+
+NULL algorithm for DMA operations.
+
+Huffman code type:
+
+* FIXED.
+* DYNAMIC.
+
+Window size support:
+
+1KB, 2KB, 4KB, 8KB, 16KB and 32KB.
+
+Shareable transformation.
+
+Checksum generation:
+
+* CRC32, Adler32 and combined checksum.
+
+Limitations
+-----------
+
+* Scatter-Gather, SHA and Stateful are not supported.
+* Non-compressed block is not supported in compress (supported in decompress).
+
+Supported NICs
+--------------
+
+* Mellanox\ |reg| BlueField 2 SmartNIC
+
+Prerequisites
+-------------
+
+- Mellanox OFED version: **5.2**
+  see :doc:`../../nics/mlx5` guide for more Mellanox OFED details.
