You actually motivated me to finish re-writing the patch... I just sent it to the dev mailing list. You'll also find the 3 commits there : https://github.com/tbarbette/dpdk/tree/mlxclock

hi Tom,

Thanks for clarifying.

I am interested in the patch that allows the query of the current device clock values. Please point me to this patch.

Hi Anshu,

No it's the value of an internal Clock. The frequency and the base are both unknown.

We have a patch that works (but must be reworked before submission to dev) that allows to query the current device clock value. Then from there you can derive the base and the frequency. I can send it to you if you wish.

Anyone know the units of Rx HW timestamps MLX5 provides?

I assumed nanoseconds but tests i have run don't match the nanosecond units.
