Subject: Mellanox Technologies MT27710 Family [ConnectX-4 Lx] not receiving (transmitting) packets
Date: Thu, 7 Apr 2022 20:07:42 -0400

I have two identical metal boxes running Intel(R) Xeon(R) E-2278G CPU @
3.40GHz. There is no virtualization; so I did NOT enable IOMMU. Both boxes
are equipped with two Mellanox Technologies MT27710 NICs and two Intel
NICs. The Intel NICs are out of scope. I am using the NIC at 01:00.1 for

# lspci | grep Eth
01:00.0 Ethernet controller: Mellanox Technologies MT27710 Family
[ConnectX-4 Lx]
01:00.1 Ethernet controller: Mellanox Technologies MT27710 Family
[ConnectX-4 Lx]
03:00.0 Ethernet controller: Intel Corporation I210 Gigabit Network
Connection (rev 03)
04:00.0 Ethernet controller: Intel Corporation I210 Gigabit Network
Connection (rev 03)

ibv and mst utilities see both Mellanox NICs. DPDK's testpmd application
sees the NIC and reports decent values except perhaps ibv_devinfo which
reports Infiniband transport.

My application sends UDP packets from one machine to another. I know this
code works on AWS ENA NICs. The build for Mellaonx finds the NIC just like
DPDK's testpmd reporting the same EAL info. There are no errors
transmitting packets; all numbers in stats are exactly what they should be.
However, the receiving side never sees any packets. It reports no errors
and does not see any packets. Every call to rx_burst sees 0 packets. There
is no firewall issue. I can use ncat in tcp and udp mode to send files
between the machines just fine.

My application is using CRC checksum offload for RX and TX (value 6). And I
triple checked the MAC and IP addresses I use in the code. I believe they
are fine. I set auto-negotiate on both the RX and TX side. I have also
tried to set 10Gbs link speed. No help. I also ran testdpdk then tried to
send it packets with ncat; testpmd never sees any packets either.

I have read through https://doc.dpdk.org/guides/nics/mlx5.html for proper
setup. I found the following deviations:

- https://doc.dpdk.org/guides/platform/mlx5.html#mlx5-common-env says to
set the link type to Eth: mlxconfig -d <mst device> query | grep LINK_TYPE.
These devices do NOT have a link type and do not allow setting it. I am
assuming it only works in Eth mode.

- the latest and greatest MST toolkit wget
https://www.mellanox.com/downloads/MFT/mft-4.18.0-106-x86_64-deb.tgz does
not include the utiliity mlxdevm and neither does the OEFD install wget
include it. The ISO file does NOT have a utility called mlnxofedinstall. So
I am not sure if I am missing something. The doc reads:

The firmware, the libraries libibverbs, libmlx5, and mlnx-ofed-kernel
modules are packaged in Mellanox OFED. After downloading, it can be
installed with this command:

./mlnxofedinstall --dpdk

So I just ran ./install --dpdk since the ISO image does have an install
script taking the --dpdk argument.

The doc https://doc.dpdk.org/guides/platform/mlx5.html#mlx5-common-env
mentions a whole bunch of instructions about SRIOV, SF ports etc but which
requires mlxdevm. As I say above there is no such utility.

So I am stuck.
