[dpdk-dev] pktgen offload checksum flag not able to make it work with pacp packets.

As I remember, for TCP and UDP checksum HW offload, SW is responsible for generating and setting psudo-header checksum.
>From 82599 datasheet, 18.104.22.168:
Note: For non-TSO, software still needs to calculate a full checksum for the TCP/
UDP pseudo-header. This checksum of the pseudo-header should be placed
in the packet data buffer at the appropriate offset for the checksum
Refer to app/test-pmd/csumonly.c for an example.

The tx_conf is used in the pktgen_config_ports() with the rte_eth_tx_queue_setup() and I am not sure why it matters that tx_conf is disable. The values are mostly zero, but some type of interaction must be going on. It may be the txq_flags being set to IXGBE_SIMPLE_FLAGS and it is overriding the the per packet flag later. You will need to look at the driver to determine the real reason.
The checksum should not be wrong unless the hardware registers are not setup correctly, but I would not think that is the case. You may want to verify the checksum is correct another way, because I can not see the hardware doing the checksum wrong.

Thanks a lot for the reply !
Yes I have checked those examples and had set all those flags. But IP checksum started working after commenting off the txq_flags from the pktgen.c file's tx_conf .
And I added the following flag to calculate the tcp checksum.
m->ol_flags |= PKT_TX_TCP_CKSUM
its calculating the TCP checksum but turning out to be wrong checksum.

I have not enabled that feature myself, but I would expect it to work as long as the hardware does. What does the docs say about enabling hardware offload support? Did you look at the following files:
ip_reassembly/ipv4_rsmbl.h: m->ol_flags |= PKT_TX_IP_CKSUM;
ipv4_frag/rte_ipv4_frag.h: out_pkt->ol_flags |= PKT_TX_IP_CKSUM;

I was modifying a packet in pktgen_pcap_mbuf_ctor() and after modifying I wanted to offload the checksum calculation to h/w so I am setting these flags in pktgen_pcap_mbuf_ctor function.
m->pkt.vlan_macip.f.l2_len = sizeof(struct ether_hdr);
m->pkt.vlan_macip.f.l3_len = sizeof(struct ipv4_hdr);
m->ol_flags = PKT_TX_IP_CKSUM
I even tried with setting .txq_flags = 0 in rte_eth_txconf struct in pktgen.c.
But still not able to get the h/w checksum. Am I missing anything ?
