[dpdk-dev] [PATCH v8] app/testpmd: add portlist option

Tue Feb 11 16:52:55 CET 2020


In current version, we are setting the ports
using portmask. With portmask, we can use only
upto 64 ports. This portlist option enables the user
to use more than 64 ports.
Now we can specify the ports in 2 different ways
 - Using portmask (-p [0x]nnn): mask must be in hex format
 - Using portlist in the following format
 --portlist <p1>[-p2][,p3[-p4],...]

 --portmask 0x2 is same as --portlist 1
 --portmask 0x3 is same as --portlist 0-1

v8:
changed the data types of the variables.
optimised the code by checking for blank spaces
only once.

v7:
moved the port validation outside the parser function.
added meaningful comments describing the new functionality.
renamed the variables with meaningful names

v6:
optimized the code to check for duplicates

v5:
added a check to validate the ports available before
setting them. also added comments in the testpmd file
for the new function

v4:
the parser is modified so that we don't ues 2 arrays
to convert the listed port values

v3:
squashed the 2 patches and made it 1 patch with
changes only in testpmd. Also working on optmizing
the parser

v2:
moved the parser function to testpmd

+ *   For example, if the user wants to use all the available
+ *   4 ports in his system, then the input can be 0-3 or 0,1,2,3.
+ *   If the user wants to use only the ports 1,2 then the input

+ *   valid characters are '-' and ','
+ *   invalid chars like '.' or '#' will result in

+ *     Cause: Invalid fwd port list
+ * @param[out] values
+ *   This array will be filled with a list of port IDs
+ *   based on the user input
+ *   Note that duplicate entries are discarded and only the first
+ *   count entries in this array are port IDs and all the rest
+ *   will contain default values
+ * @param[in] maxsize
+ *   This parameter denotes 2 things
+ *   1) Maximum size of the values array
+ *   2) Maximum value of each element in the values array
+ * @return
+ *   -returns total count of parsed port IDs
