In http://doc.dpdk.org/guides/nics/overview.html, table 1.1 lists all
supported features.
It has a single line for "Flow API" that refers to rte_flow support.
rte_flow is composed of many items and actions that are not expressed in
this single line.

The following new tables are suggested:
1. rte_flow items
2. rte_flow actions
3. rte_flow shared actions

After running git status I remembered the generated .txt files
must be added in .gitignore.

I suggest not having "shared" in above table but marking "age" and "rss"
as shared with "S" in above table.

In this case, how would you separate, for example, between support of age and shared age? There are different actions.

  To: dev; +Cc: thomas

In http://doc.dpdk.org/guides/nics/overview.html, table 1.1 lists all
supported features.
It has a single line for "Flow API" that refers to rte_flow support.
rte_flow is composed of many items and actions that are not expressed in
this single line.

The following new tables are suggested:
1. rte_flow items
2. rte_flow actions
3. rte_flow shared actions

Also, since each table needs a new section in the pmd ini
file that might not be relevant for all pmds, the print
error message for missing section in conf.py is removed.

If aged is supported, but not shared age, then "age = Y".
If shared age is supported, then "age = S".
I assume simple age is supported if shared age is.

* [dpdk-dev] [PATCH v3] doc: add new tables for rte flow items and actions support

In http://doc.dpdk.org/guides/nics/overview.html, table 1.1 lists all
supported features.
It has a single line for "Flow API" that refers to rte_flow support.
rte_flow is composed of many items and actions that are not expressed in
this single line.

The following new tables are suggested:
1. rte_flow items
2. rte_flow actions
3. rte_flow shared actions

Also, since each table needs a new section in the pmd ini
file that might not be relevant for all pmds, the print
error message for missing section in conf.py is removed.

One comment to add to this commit message if you agree:
When the new rte_flow tables are filled for all relevant PMDs,
we could remove the row "Flow API" from the main table.

In items and actions above (and others) I understand the names are taken
directly from the enums or structs.
However I could imagine a slight different natural naming,
using some upper cases and spaces. Example:
	set_ipv4_dst -> set IPv4 dst
I see pros and cons. What are other opinions?

Hi Asaf,

I understand the intention, but I am not sure about this.

The Flow API does not provide a capability or feature list in the API level, by 
design, because it is very hard to do it correct, but this patch tries to do it 
in the documentation level.

This will be missing lots of details, the flow items and actions documented as 
supported may and may not be supported based on the details.

It will be very hard to read this table (when it becomes full), also will be 
very hard to maintain.


Let me start with a question, who do you think will be your consumer?
Who will benefit from this table and how?

Which missing details are you referring to? All flow items and all actions are listed.

As part of any documentation change in rte_flow the developer would also need to update this table.
Why would it be very hard to maintain?

We get a lot of questions from users regarding rte_flow support and we do not have a single place with proper documentation.
I can ask the same about the overall feature table, right? There is a value to document the support.

Patterns are complex, any rule can be valid or invalid based on provided pattern 
values (details), also any rule can be valid or invalid based on previous rules 
or configuration.

In practice this information is much more useful if it is provided by API, but 
we are not able to do it because of its complex nature, it should be same level 
of complexity to provide this information by documentation.

Ahh, that sound so simple when you say like this :) In practice even keeping 
feature list requiring lots of effort, developers are 
missing/neglecting/ignoring updating documentation when updating the code.

And for this case is partially correct table a useful information? If this is 
not completely correct people won't rely on it and it will become just useless.
So this feature should come with an automated way to detect if a rule supported 
but not documented, or even better this table should be generated from code 
automatically.

Let's discuss the feature table separately, I think that is a valid question.

For the rte_flow, who is asking questions? End user, or application developer? 
So is this intended to be a marketing documentation or technical documentation?

And what is the nature of the questions, if it is related to the rte_flow, there 
is already a proper documentation for it:
https://doc.dpdk.org/guides/prog_guide/rte_flow.html

If this question is if any specific rule supported by a specific PMD, right now 
only valid way to say this that I am aware of is, run 'rte_flow_validate()' and see.
Not sure if we can document this properly.

I think in general we are missing a big disclaimer
on top of this overview page:
	Each feature may have some hardware limitations.

Then there is a need, both for application developers and end-users,
to know which feature can be supported by a PMD,
or which PMD can support a feature.
Yes there are complex limitations with hardware offloads in general.
Yes it would be nice to report some tested capabilities with a CI.
But it does not mean we should not try to document it in my opinion.

Also, the combination of several items and actions is not feasible to be documented. Ferruh, I believe you are referring to this case.
I wanted to have some documentation of the supported items/actions.
The questions come from all users, I didn't bisect to see if they are application engineers or developers or users.
For sure, they can take testpmd and confirm, but before even going there and if they want to evaluate DPDK, they prefer to see a place with this documentation.
We cannot document everything, I know. Also, believe me, that I know how challenging is to track the relevancy of document 😊
Still, it's better to have this, than not at all.

+1 to all of these.
A document like this will help give an idea on what is possible with the
PMD without looking at the code. Beyond that, the user can check with
the vendor/developer for specific details if needed.

I am still feeling we are trying to workaround flow API design constrain with 
documentation, although we know it won't be complete.
And not really clear who will benefit from this in what way.

Anyway, as mentioned above I am concerned the maintenance cost, can this series 
investigate:
1) A way to automatically fill the table from source code
2) A way to check if a patch is adding a new flow support but not documenting it

Also can you please propose a maintainer for it (can be documented in MAINTAINER 
file) who will be responsible of the correctness of the table, which means:
- Will verify a claimed support by a PMD is really supported
- All flow API features are documented for a PMD
- Changes in the code are reflected to the documentation
- Trace PMD maintainers for missing data

I disagree, it is not a workaround.
API is for application to work with any hardware.
Doc is for users to imagine which feature they could use
in which config (HW, DPDK version, etc).

> And not really clear who will benefit from this in what way.

End users will be the main users of this doc,
but it will help a lot more people to track what is implemented.

I am looking at it.

Looking into it as well.

I'm not sure we should have a maintainer for this single file.
With the help of checkpatch script, the responsibility can be shared
in the next-net trees, isn't it?

This is an improvement of the rte_flow documentation:
it makes possible to quickly read which items and actions
may be accepted by the drivers in a DPDK release.

A script is provided for CI to make sure the matrix is updated,
while allowing some manual tuning.

The driver directory is drivers/net/sfc
but the features file was doc/guides/nics/features/sfc_efx.ini.

sfc_efx.ini is renamed sfc.ini to match the driver directory name.
It will help automatic checks of this file.

The NICs overview table lists all supported features per driver.
There was a single row for "Flow API",
although rte_flow is composed of many items and actions.

The row "Flow API" is replaced with two new tables for items and actions.

Also, since rte_flow is not implemented in all drivers,
it would be ugly to add empty sections in some files.
That's why the error message for missing INI section is removed.

The lists are sorted alphabetically.
The extra files for some VF and vectorized data paths are not filled.

  To: dev; +Cc: ferruh.yigit, andrew.rybchenko

The script check-doc-vs-code.sh may be used to add
some automatic checks of the doc.

If run without any argument, a complete check is done.
The optional argument is a git history reference point
to check faster only what has changed since this commit.

In this commit, the only check is for rte_flow tables,
achieved through the script parse-flow-support.sh.
If run without a .ini reference, it prints rte_flow tables.
Note: detected features are marked with the value Y,
while the real .ini file could have special values like I.
The script allow parsing exceptions (exclude or include),
like for bnxt code which lists unsupported items and actions.
