Introduce memnic-tester which benchmarks MEMNIC PMD performance in guest.

It starts with two threads, one thread produces and consumes packets,
other thread receives packets and directly transmits the received
packets. This evaluates MEMNIC PMD running cost.

The master thread does rx_burst and tx_burst through MEMNIC PMD.
        +---------+
        | master  |
        +---------+
 rx_burst ^     | tx_burst
          |     V
      +------+------+
      |  up  | down | MEMNIC shared memory
      +------+------+
 set flag ^     | unset flag
          |     V
        +---------+
        |  slave  |
        +---------+
The slave thread emulates packet-in/out by setting flag on/off.

 master |<- put packets ->|     |<- get packets ->|
 slave  |   |<- rx packets ->|<- tx packets ->|   |
        |<----------------- set ----------------->|

Measuring how many sets in the certain period, that represents
the MEMNIC PMD performance. The master workload must be very low.

It shows that throughputs in different frame size.

Sorry, I don't really understand this diagram and the associated explanation.
Could you try to reword it?

Thanks

sure, will make more understandable description.
Could you please help me to do that?

The purpose of this program is measuring the performance of MEMNIC PMD itself.
It means that we'd like to know how much the PMD takes in rx and tx API.
The program does rx and tx in the slave thread and the PMD performance could
be measured how much packets are handled in certain period. By the way we
need to fill and clear MEMNIC packet buffer for enabling to work the PMD rx/tx
in the slave thread. Then, I made the master thread which fills and clears
MEMNIC packet buffer in the lightest way, and it should be with the least jitter.
If we generate a real packet out of VM, that may cause increasing jitter
outside of the MEMNIC PMD, it means we will not see the precise performance
of MEMNIC PMD itself.

Can you see the concept of this benchmark with the above?

thanks,
Hiroshi

Yes. But I think master and slave roles are confused.
I try to reword it with less words:

memnic-tester is a benchmark tool to measure performance of MEMNIC PMD itself.
The master thread forward packets with Rx and Tx bursts. 
The slave thread fills and clears packets in the lightest way. It doesn't get
packet out of VM because it would increase jitter and hide PMD performance.
Throughput (number of forwarded packets per second) is given for each frame size.

+MEMNIC TESTER
+=============
+
+DESCRIPTION
+-----------
+
+It is a simple benchmark test of MEMNIC PMD in guest.
+
+It have two threads, one thread produces and consumes packets,
+other thread receives packets and directly transmits the received
+packets back in MEMNIC interface. This evaluates MEMNIC PMD running cost.
+
+The master thread does rx_burst and tx_burst through MEMNIC PMD.
+            +---------+
+            | master  |
+            +---------+
+     rx_burst ^     | tx_burst
+              |     V
+          +------+------+
+          |  up  | down | MEMNIC shared memory
+          +------+------+
+     set flag ^     | unset flag
+              |     V
+            +---------+
+            |  slave  |
+            +---------+
+The slave thread emulates packet-in/out by setting flag on/off.
+
+Measuring how many sets in the certain period, that represents
+the MEMNIC PMD performance. The master workload must be very low.
+
+     master |<- put packets ->|     |<- get packets ->|
+     slave  |   |<- rx packets ->|<- tx packets ->|   |
+            |<----------------- set ----------------->|
+
+Like RFC2544, evaluations are performed the below frame size packets.
+  64, 128, 256, 512, 1024, 1280, 1518
+
+It shows the result as packets per second number of each frame size.
+
+HOW TO BUILD
+------------
+
+DPDK and DPDK MEMNIC PMD must be built first like below::
+
+  cd /path/to/dpdk
+  make install T=x86_64-native-linuxapp-gcc
+  cd /path/to/memnic/pmd
+  make RTE_INCLUDE=/path/to/dpdk/x86_64-native-linuxapp-gcc/include
+  cd /path/to/memnic/guest
+  make RTE_SDK=/path/to/dpdk RTE_TARGET=x86_64-native-linuxapp-gcc
+
+The file ``memnic-tester`` is generated under ``build`` directory.
+
+HOW TO RUN
+----------
+
+On host the MEMNIC device must be initialized with proper program.
+``memnic-host-sim`` should take care about it::
+
+  [host]# ./memnic-host-sim /dev/shm/ivshm
+
+Then stop the ``memnic-host-sim`` by CTRL-C.
+
+Run ``memnic-tester`` in guest::
+
+  [guest]# echo 64 > /sys/devices/system/node/node0/hugepages/hugepages-2048kB/nr_hugepages
+  [guest]# mount -t hugetlbfs nodev /mnt/huge
+  [guest]# ./build/memnic-tester -c 0x6 -n 4 -d /path/to/librte_pmd_memnic_copy.so
+
+The result shows how much packets are handled by MEMNIC PMD per second.
