[dpdk-dev] [PATCH] net/mlx5: fix completion queue overflow for large bursts

Sun Aug 4 15:55:27 CEST 2019


There is the limit on completion descriptor fetch to improve
latency. If burst size is large there might be not enough
resources freed in completion processing. This fix reiterates
sending loop and allows multiple completion descriptor fetch
and processing.

Fixes: 18a1c20044c0 ("net/mlx5: implement Tx burst template")
