Hi ,
We are using 'rte_mempool_create' for allocation of flow memory. This has
been there for a while. We just migrated to dpdk-18.11 from dpdk-17.05. Now
here is problem statement

Problem statement :
In new dpdk ( 18.11 ), the 'rte_mempool_create' take approximately ~4.4 sec
for allocation compared to older dpdk (17.05). We have som 8-9 mempools for
our entire product. We do upfront allocation for all of them ( i.e. when
dpdk application is coming up). Our application is run to completion model.

Questions:-
i)  is that acceptable / has anybody seen such a thing ?
ii) What has changed between two dpdk versions ( 18.11 v/s 17.05 ) from
memory perspective ?

Any pointer are welcome.

Thanks & regards
Venu

Hi,

Few more points

Operating system  : Centos 7.6
Logging mechanism : syslog

We have logged using syslog before the call and syslog after the call.

Thanks & Regards

Could you give some more details about you use case? (hugepage size, number
of objects, object size, additional mempool flags, ...)

Did you manage to reproduce it in a small test example? We could do some
profiling to investigate.

Thanks for the feedback.

Hi Oliver,



*> Could you give some more details about you use case? (hugepage size,

Ours in telecom product, we support multiple rats. Let us take example of
4G case where we act as an gtpu proxy.

·        Hugepage size :- 2 Mb

·        *rte_mempool_create in param*

o    { name=”gtpu-mem”,

o   n=1500000,

o   elt_size=224,

o   cache_size=0,

o   private_data_size=0,

o   mp_init=NULL,

o   mp_init_arg=NULL,

o   obj_init=NULL,

o   obj_init_arg=NULL,

o   socket_id=rte_socket_id(),

o   flags=MEMPOOL_F_SP_PUT }



*> Did you manage to reproduce it in a small test example? We could do some

No I would love to try that ? Are there examples ?



Thanks,

Hi,

from 17.05 to 18.11 there was a change in default memory model for DPDK. In
17.05 all DPDK memory was allocated statically upfront and that used for
the memory pools. With 18.11, no large blocks of memory are allocated at
init time, instead the memory is requested from the kernel as it is needed
by the app. This will make the initial startup of an app faster, but the
allocation of new objects like mempools slower, and it could be this you
are seeing.

Some things to try:
1. Use "--socket-mem" EAL flag to do an upfront allocation of memory for use
by your memory pools and see if it improves things.
2. Try using "--legacy-mem" flag to revert to the old memory model.

Regards,
/Bruce

OK, that's quite big mempools (~300MB) but I don't think it should
take that much time.

I suspect that using 1G hugepages could help, in case it is related
to the memory allocator.

The simplest way for me is to hack the unit tests. Add this code (not
tested) at the beginning of test_mempool.c:test_mempool():

	int i;
	for (i = 0; i < 100; i++) {
		struct rte_mempool *mp;

		mp = rte_mempool_create("test", 1500000,
					224, 0, 0, NULL, NULL,
					NULL, NULL, SOCKET_ID_ANY,
					MEMPOOL_F_SP_PUT);
		if (mp == NULL) {
			printf("rte_mempool_create() failed\n");
			return -1;
		}
		rte_mempool_free(mp);
	}
	return 0;

Then, you can launch the test application and run you test with
"mempool_autotest". I suggest to compile with EXTRA_CFLAGS="-g", so you
can run "perf top" (https://perf.wiki.kernel.org/index.php/Main_Page) to
see where you spend the time.  By using "perf record" / "perf report"
with options, you can also analyze the call stack.

Please share your results, especially comparison between 17.05 and 18.11.

Thanks,
Olivier

I would also add to this the fact that the mempool will, by default, 
attempt to allocate IOVA-contiguous memory, with a fallback to non-IOVA 
contiguous memory whenever getting IOVA-contiguous memory isn't possible.

If you are running in IOVA as PA mode (such as would be the case if you 
are using igb_uio kernel driver), then, since it is now impossible to 
preallocate large PA-contiguous chunks in advance, what will likely 
happen in this case is, mempool will try to allocate IOVA-contiguous 
memory, fail and retry with non-IOVA contiguous memory (essentially 
allocating memory twice). For large mempools (or large number of 
mempools) that can take a bit of time.

The obvious workaround is using VFIO and IOVA as VA mode. This will 
cause the allocator to be able to get IOVA-contiguous memory at the 
outset, and allocation will complete faster.

The other two alternatives, already suggested in this thread by Bruce 
and Olivier, are:

1) use bigger page sizes (such as 1G)
2) use legacy mode (and lose out on all of the benefits provided by the 
new memory model)

The recommended solution is to use VFIO/IOMMU, and IOVA as VA mode.

Hi Anatoly,

By default w/o specifying --iova-mode option is iova-mode=pa by default ?

Hi Oliver,Bruce,


   - we were using --SOCKET-MEM Eal flag.
   - We did not wanted to avoid going back to legacy mode.
   - we also wanted to avoid 1G huge-pages.

Thanks for your inputs.

Hi Anatoly,

We were using vfio with iommu, but by default it s iova-mode=pa, after
changing to iova-mode=va via EAL it kind of helped us to bring down
allocation time(s) for mempools drastically. The time taken was brought
from ~4.4 sec to 0.165254 sec.

Thanks and regards
Venu

In 18.11, there is a very specific set of circumstances that will 
default to IOVA as VA mode. Future releases have become more aggressive, 
to the point of IOVA as VA mode being the default unless asked 
otherwise. So yes, it is highly likely that in your case, IOVA as PA is 
picked as the default.

That's great to hear.

As a final note, --socket-mem is no longer necessary, because 18.11 will 
allocate memory as needed. It is however still advisable to use it if 
you see yourself end up in a situation where the runtime allocation 
could conceivably fail (such as if you have other applications running 
on your system, and DPDK has to compete for hugepage memory).

I would also suggest using --limit-mem if you desire to limit the 
maximum amount of memory DPDK will be able to allocate. This will make 
DPDK behave similarly to older releases in that it will not attempt to 
allocate more memory than you allow it.

Hi Anatoly,

Thanks for quick response. We want to understand, if there will be
performance implications because of iova-mode being va. We want to
understand,  specifically in terms following

   - cache misses
   - Branch misses etc
   - translation of va addr -> phy addr when packet is receieved

 Thanks and regards
Venu

There will be no impact whatsoever. You mentioned that you were already 
using VFIO, so you were already making use of IOMMU*. Cache/branch 
misses are independent of IOVA layout, and translations are done by the 
hardware (in either IOVA as PA or IOVA as VA case - IOMMU doesn't care 
what you program it with, it still does the translation, even if it's a 
1:1 IOVA-to-PA mapping), so there is nothing that can cause degradation.

In fact, under some circumstances, using IOVA as VA mode can be used to 
get performance /gains/, because the code can take advantage of the fact 
that there are large IOVA-contiguous segments and no page-by-page 
allocations. Some drivers (IIRC octeontx mempool?) even refuse to work 
in IOVA as PA mode due to huge overheads of page-by-page buffer offset 
tracking.

TL;DR you'll be fine :)

* Using an IOMMU can /theoretically/ affect performance due to hardware 
IOVA->PA translation and IOTLB cache misses. In practice, i have never 
been able to observe /any/ effect whatsoever on performance when using 
IOMMU vs. without using IOMMU, so this appears to not be a concern /in 
practice/.

Hi Anatoly,

After using iova-mode=va, i see my ports are not getting detected ? I
thought it's working but I see following problem

what could be the problem?
i) I see allocation is faster
ii) But my ports are not getting detected
I take my word back that it entirely working..

Thanks,
Regards,
Venu
