Commit Message

Min Hu (Connor) June 15, 2021, 12:23 p.m. UTC
This patch adds multi-process support for testpmd.
The test cmd example as follows:
the primary cmd:
./dpdk-testpmd -a xxx --proc-type=auto -l 0-1 -- -i \
--rxq=4 --txq=4 --num-procs=2 --proc-id=0

the secondary cmd:
./dpdk-testpmd -a xxx --proc-type=auto -l 2-3 -- -i \
--rxq=4 --txq=4 --num-procs=2 --proc-id=1

+Testpmd Multi-Process Command-line Options
+~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
+
+The following are the command-line options for testpmd multi-process support:
+
+.. code-block:: console
+
+       primary process:
+       sudo ./dpdk-testpmd -a xxx --proc-type=auto -l 0-1 -- -i --rxq=4 --txq=4 \
+        --num-procs=2 --proc-id=0
+
+       secondary process:
+       sudo ./dpdk-testpmd -a xxx --proc-type=auto -l 2-3 -- -i --rxq=4 --txq=4 \
+        --num-procs=2 --proc-id=1
+
+The command line options are:
+
+*   ``--num-procs=N``
+
+    The number of processes which will be used.
+
+*   ``--proc-id=id``
+
+    The id of the current process (id < num-procs). id should be different in
+    primary process and secondary process, which starts from '0'.
+
+Calculation rule for queue:
+All queues are allocated to different processes based on ``proc_num`` and ``proc_id``.
+Calculation rule for the testpmd to allocate queues to each process:
+start(queue start id) = proc_id * nb_q / num_procs;
+end(queue end id) = start + nb_q / num_procs;
+
+For example, if testpmd supports 4 Tx and Rx queues
+the 0~1 for primary process
+the 2~3 for secondary process
+
+The number of rings should be a multiple of the number of processes. If not,
+redundant queues will exist after queues are allocated to processes. After RSS
+is enabled, packet loss occurs when traffic is sent to all processes at the same
+time. Some traffic enters redundant queues and cannot be forwarded.
+
+All the dev ops is supported in primary process. While secondary process is
+not permitted to allocate or release shared memory, so some ops are not supported
+as follows::
+``dev_configure``
+``dev_start``
+``dev_stop``
+``rx_queue_setup``
+``tx_queue_setup``
+``rx_queue_release``
+``tx_queue_release``
+
+So, any command from testpmd which calls those APIs will not be supported in
+secondary process, like::
+``port config all rxq|txq|rxd|txd <value>``
+``port config <port_id> rx_offload xxx on/off ``
+``port config <port_id> tx_offload xxx on/off``
+etc.
+
+Stats is supported, stats will not change when one quit and start, as they
+share the same buffer to store the stats. Flow rules are maintained in process
+level: primary and secondary has its own flow list (but one flow list in HW).
+The two can see all the queues, so setting the flow rules for the other is OK.
+But in the testpmd primary process receiving or transmitting packets from the
+queue allocated for secondary process is not permitted, and same for secondary
+process.
+
+Flow API and RSS are supported.
