Subject: [dpdk-users] Questions about rte_flow_create APIs
Date: Fri, 3 Jul 2020 06:44:38 +0000
Message-ID: <13c6e9a563824423a653bdb64d72d54e@huawei.com> (raw)

Hi, Guys
  I am analyzing rte_flow_create API and test and is testing server parametric scenario.
  When use testpmd and the following flow creat cmd:

  testpmd> flow create 0 ingress pattern end actions rss func simple_xor  / end

why the contents of rte_flow_action_rss is not same acquisition method after run the flowing codes.
struct rte_flow_action_rss conf;

rss_conf = action->conf;

the Value of unspecified parameter is not same acquisition method.

The rss_conf.type is default;
The rss_conf.key_len is deault;
The rss_conf.queue_num is deault;

However, the rss_conf.key is random and unpredictable

The result is that when the user does not specify the rss key, the driver will fill a random value into the hardware¡£
The rss key value found by the user is different from the first value, which results in the user not being able to use it correctly.
I think the reasonable behavior is that either the rss rule was not successfully created or the content of the rss key that was queried has not changed

testpmd> show port 0 rss-hash key
RSS functions:
all ipv4-frag ipv4-other ipv6-frag ipv6-other ip
RSS key:
testpmd> flow create 0 ingress pattern eth / ipv4 / udp / end actions rss types ipv4-udp end queues end / end
Flow rule #0 created
testpmd> show port 0 rss-hash key
RSS functions:
all ipv4-udp udp
RSS key:

What do you think?
