[dpdk-dev] [PATCH 19.08 v2] net/pcap: enable infinitely rxing a pcap file

Cian Ferriter cian.ferriter at intel.com
Wed Jun 5 13:56:20 CEST 2019


It can be useful to use pcap files for some rudimental performance
testing. This patch enables this functionality in the pcap driver.

At a high level, this works by creaing a ring of sufficient size to
store the packets in the pcap file passed to the application. When the
rx function for this mode is called, packets are dequeued from the ring
for use by the application and also enqueued back on to the ring to be
"received" again.

A tx_drop mode is also added since transmitting to a tx_pcap file isn't
desirable at a high traffic rate.

Jumbo frames are not supported in this mode. When filling the ring at rx
queue setup time, the presence of multi segment mbufs is checked for.
The PMD will exit on detection of these multi segment mbufs.

+- Use the RX PCAP file to infinitely receive packets
+
+ In case ``rx_pcap=`` configuration is set, user may want to use the selected PCAP file for rudimental
+ performance testing. This can be done with a ``devarg`` ``infinite_rx``, for example::
+
+   --vdev 'net_pcap0,rx_pcap=file_rx.pcap,infinite_rx=1,tx_drop=1'
+
+ When this mode is used, it is recommended to use the ``tx_drop`` ``devarg``.
+
+ This option is device wide, so all queues on a device will either have this enabled or disabled.
+
+- Drop all packets on transmit
+
+ The user may want to drop all packets on tx for a device. This can be done with the ``tx_drop`` ``devarg``, for example::
+
+   --vdev 'net_pcap0,rx_pcap=file_rx.pcap,tx_drop=1'
+
+ One tx drop queue is created for each rxq on that device.
+
