2017-05-05config: make backtrace optionalWei Dai
When building DPDK with musl, there is need not to disable backtrace to remove some references to execinfo.h which is not supported by musl now. This also applies to some other libc implementation which doesn't support backtrace() and backtrace_symbols(). musl is an implementation of the userspace portion of the standard library functionality described in the ISO C and POSIX standards, plus common extensions. Got more details about musl from . Signed-off-by: Wei Dai <> Signed-off-by: Thomas Monjalon <>
2017-04-30config: make AVX and AVX512 configurableZhihong Wang
Making AVX and AVX512 configurable is useful for performance and power testing. The similar kernel patch at AVX512 support like in rte_memcpy has been in DPDK since 16.04, but it's still unproven in rich use cases in hardware. Therefore it's marked as experimental for now, will enable it after enough field test and possible optimization.

2017-04-30config: set cache line as 128B for generic arm64Jerin Jacob
armv8 implementations may have 64B or 128B cache line. Setting to the maximum available cache line size in generic config to address minimum DMA alignment across all arm64 implementations. Increasing the cacheline size has no negative impact to cache invalidation on systems with a smaller cache line. The need for the minimum DMA alignment has impact on functional aspects of the platform so default config should cater the functional aspects. There is an impact on memory usage with this scheme, but that's not too important for the single image arm64 distribution use case. The arm64 linux kernel followed the similar approach for single arm64 image use case. Signed-off-by: Jerin Jacob <> Acked-by: Jianbo Liu <> Acked-by: Santosh Shukla <>

2017-04-05metrics: add information metrics libraryRemy Horton
This patch adds a new information metrics library. This Metrics library implements a mechanism by which producers can publish numeric information for later querying by consumers. Metrics themselves are statistics that are not generated by PMDs, and hence are not reported via ethdev extended statistics. Metric information is populated using a push model, where producers update the values contained within the metric library by calling an update function on the relevant metrics. Consumers receive metric information by querying the central metric data, which is held in shared memory. Signed-off-by: Remy Horton <>

2017-03-16mk: provide option to set major ABI versionChristian Ehrhardt
Downstreams might want to provide different DPDK releases at the same time to support multiple consumers of DPDK linked against older and newer sonames. Also due to the interdependencies that DPDK libraries can have applications might end up with an executable space in which multiple versions of a library are mapped by Think of LibA that got an ABI bump and LibB that did not get an ABI bump but is depending on LibA. Application \-> LibA.old \-> -> That is a conflict which can be avoided by setting CONFIG_RTE_MAJOR_ABI. If set CONFIG_RTE_MAJOR_ABI overwrites any LIBABIVER value. An example might be ``CONFIG_RTE_MAJOR_ABI=16.11`` which will make all libraries librte<?>.so.16.11 instead of librte<?>.so.<LIBABIVER>. We need to cut arbitrary long stings after the .so now and this would work for any ABI version in LIBABIVER: $(Q)ln -s -f $< $(patsubst %.$(LIBABIVER),%,$@) But using the following instead additionally allows to simplify the Make File for the CONFIG_RTE_NEXT_ABI case. $(Q)ln -s -f $< $(shell echo $@ | sed 's/\.so.*/.so/') Signed-off-by: Christian Ehrhardt <> Reviewed-by: Jan Blunck <> Tested-by: Jan Blunck <>

2017-01-30app/crypto-perf: introduce performance test applicationSlawomir Mrozowicz
This patchset introduce new application which allows measuring performance parameters of PMDs available in crypto tree. The goal of this application is to replace existing performance tests in app/test. Parameters available are: throughput (--ptest throughput) and latency (--ptest latency). User can use multiply cores to run tests on but only one type of crypto PMD can be measured during single application execution. Cipher parameters, type of device, type of operation and chain mode have to be specified in the command line as application parameters. These parameters are checked using device capabilities structure. Couple of new library functions in librte_cryptodev are introduced for application use. To build the application a CONFIG_RTE_APP_CRYPTO_PERF flag has to be set (it is set by default). Example of usage: -c 0xc0 --vdev crypto_aesni_mb_pmd -w 0000:00:00.0 -- --ptest throughput --devtype crypto_aesni_mb --optype cipher-then-auth --cipher-algo aes-cbc --cipher-op encrypt --cipher-key-sz 16 --auth-algo sha1-hmac --auth-op generate --auth-key-sz 64 --auth-digest-sz 12 --total-ops 10000000 --burst-sz 32 --buffer-sz 64 Signed-off-by: Declan Doherty <> Signed-off-by: Slawomir Mrozowicz <> Signed-off-by: Piotr Azarewicz <> Signed-off-by: Marcin Kerlin <> Signed-off-by: Michal Kobylinski <>

2017-01-19crypto/armv8: add PMD optimized for ARMv8 processorsZbigniew Bodek
This patch introduces crypto poll mode driver using ARMv8 cryptographic extensions. CPU compatibility with this driver is detected in run-time and virtual crypto device will not be created if CPU doesn't provide: AES, SHA1, SHA2 and NEON. This PMD is optimized to provide performance boost for chained crypto operations processing, such as encryption + HMAC generation, decryption + HMAC validation. In particular, cipher only or hash only operations are not provided. The driver currently supports AES-128-CBC in combination with: SHA256 HMAC and SHA1 HMAC and relies on the external armv8_crypto library: Build ARMv8 crypto PMD if compiling for ARM64 and CONFIG_RTE_LIBRTE_PMD_ARMV8_CRYPTO option is enable in the configuration file. ARMV8_CRYPTO_LIB_PATH environment variable will point to the appropriate library directory. Signed-off-by: Zbigniew Bodek <> Reviewed-by: Jerin Jacob <>
2017-01-18efd: new Elastic Flow Distributor libraryPablo de Lara
Elastic Flow Distributor (EFD) is a distributor library that uses perfect hashing to determine a target/value for a given incoming flow key. It has the following advantages: - First, because it uses perfect hashing, it does not store the key itself and hence lookup performance is not dependent on the key size. - Second, the target/value can be any arbitrary value hence the system designer and/or operator can better optimize service rates and inter-cluster network traffic locating. - Third, since the storage requirement is much smaller than a hash-based flow table (i.e. better fit for CPU cache), EFD can scale to millions of flow keys. Finally, with current optimized library implementation performance is fully scalable with number of CPU cores.
