 Link Bonding Modes Overview

@@ -57,143 +61,255 @@  Link Bonding Modes Overview
 Currently the Link Bonding PMD library supports 4 modes of operation:
 
 *   **Round-Robin (Mode 0):**
-    This mode provides load balancing and fault tolerance by transmission of packets
-    in sequential order from the first available slave device through the last.
-    Packets are bulk dequeued from devices then serviced in round-robin manner.

+    round-robin manner. This mode does not guarantee in order reception of
+    packets and down stream should be able to handle out of order packets.
 
 *   **Active Backup (Mode 1):**
-    In this mode only one slave in the bond is active at any time, a different slave becomes active if,
-    and only if, the primary active slave fails,
-    thereby providing fault tolerance to slave failure.
-    The single logical bonded interface's MAC address is externally visible on only one NIC (port)

+
+    In this mode only one slave in the bond is active at any time, a different
+    slave becomes active if, and only if, the primary active slave fails,
+    thereby providing fault tolerance to slave failure. The single logical
+    bonded interface's MAC address is externally visible on only one NIC (port)
     to avoid confusing the network switch.
 
 *   **Balance XOR (Mode 2):**
-    This mode provides load balancing based on transmit packets based on the selected XOR transmission policy and fault tolerance.
-    The default policy (layer2) uses a simple XOR calculation on the packet source / destination MAC address to select the slave to transmit on.
-    Alternate transmission policies supported are layer 2+3, this uses the IP source and destination addresses in the calculation of the slave port and
-    the final supported policy is layer 3+4, this uses IP source and destination addresses as well as the UDP source and destination port.
+
+|bond-mode-2|
+
+    This mode provides transmit load balancing (based on the selected
+    transmission policy) and fault tolerance. The default policy (layer2) uses
+    a simple calculation based on the packet flow source and destination MAC
+    addresses aswell as the number of active slaves available to the bonded
+    device to classify the packet to a specific slave to transmit on. Alternate
+    transmission policies supported are layer 2+3, this takes the IP source and
+    destination addresses into the calculation of the transmit slave port and
+    the final supported policy is layer 3+4, this uses IP source and
+    destination addresses as well as the TCP/UDP source and destination port.
+
+.. note::
+    The colouring differences of the packets are used to identify different flow
+    classification calculated by the selected transmit policy
+
 
 *   **Broadcast (Mode 3):**
-    This mode provides fault tolerance by transmission of packets on all slave ports.
+
+|bond-mode-3|
+
+    This mode provides fault tolerance by transmission of packets on all slave
+    ports.
+
+*   **Link Aggregation 802.3AD (Mode 4):**
+
+|bond-mode-4|
+
+    This mode provides dynamic link aggregation according to the 802.3ad
+    specification. It negotiates and monitors aggregation groups that share the
+    same speed and duplex settings using the selected balance transmit policy
+    for balancing outgoing traffic.
+
+    DPDK implementation of this mode provide some additional requirements of
+    the application.
+
+    1. It needs to call ``rte_eth_tx_burst`` and ``rte_eth_rx_burst`` with
+       intervals period of less than 100ms.
+
+    2. Calls to ``rte_eth_tx_burst`` must have a buffer size of at least 2xN,
+       where N is the number of slaves. This is a space required for LACP
+       frames. Additionally LACP packets are included in the statistics, but
+       they are not returned to the application.
+
+*   **Transmit Load Balancing (Mode 5):**
+
+|bond-mode-5|
+
+    This mode provides an adaptive transmit load balancing. It dynamically
+    changes the transmitting slave, according to the computed load. Statistics
+    are collected in 100ms intervals and scheduled every 10ms.

+the ``rte_eth_bond_slave_add`` / ``rte_eth_bond_slave_remove`` APIs.

+``rte_eth_rx_queue_setup`` with the parameters use to configure the bonding

+
+Link Status Change Interrupts / Polling
+~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
+
+Link bonding devices support the registration of a link status change callback,
+using the ``rte_eth_dev_callback_register`` API, this will be called when the
+status of the bonding device changes. For example in the case of a bonding
+device which has 3 slaves, the link status will change to up when one slave
+becomes active or change to down when all slaves become inactive. There is no
+callback notification when a single slave changes state and the previous
+conditions are not met. If a user wishes to monitor individual slaves then they
+must register callbacks with that slave directly.
+
+The link bonding library also supports devices which do not implement link
+status change interrupts, this is achieve by polling the devices link status at
+a defined period which is set using the ``rte_eth_bond_link_monitoring_set``
+API, the default polling interval is 10ms. When a device is added as a slave to
+a bonding device it is determined using the ``RTE_PCI_DRV_INTR_LSC`` flag
+whether the device supports interrupts or whether the link status should be
+monitored by polling it.
 
 Requirements / Limitations
 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
 
-The current implementation only supports physical devices of the same type, speed and duplex to be added as slaves.
-The bonded device inherits these values from the first active slave added to the bonded device

-
-The link status of a bonded device is dictated by that of its slaves, if all slave device link status are down or
