Subject: [spp] [PATCH v2 01/11] docs: add support for rte_flow
Date: Fri, 27 Mar 2020 13:57:22 +0900
Message-ID: <20200327045732.18463-2-x-fn-spp-ml@ntt-tx.co.jp> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <20200226113521.3787-1-x-fn-spp-ml@ntt-tx.co.jp>

From: Hideyuki Yamashita <yamashita.hideyuki@ntt-tx.co.jp>

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.

+Primary process supports ``rte_flow`` of DPDK for hardware offloading.
+Packet distribution based on dst MAC address and/or VLAN ID
