Subject: [spp] [PATCH 01/11] docs: add support for rte_flow
Date: Wed, 26 Feb 2020 20:43:25 +0900	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <>

From: Hideyuki Yamashita<>

Packet classification and distribution based on destination MAC address
can be done using NIC capability. By doing so, resource consumption of
host can be reduced. VLAN tag manipulation(entag/detag) can be done
using NIC capability in some NICs.
Primary process is enhanced to invoke such hardware capability using
DPDK rte_flow APIs and description is added in design section.

 It does not work for packet forwaring without in some usecases, but just
 provide rings and memory pools for secondary processes.
+Primary process supports ``rte_flow`` of DPDK for hardware offloading.
+Packet distribution based on dst MAC address and/or VLAN ID
