Here are some comments about the use case of this patch:

This patch is especially useful in cases where DPDK applications scale 
their CPU resources at runtime via starting and stopping slave lcores. 
Since the coremask defines the maximum scale-out for such a application, 
the master lcore becomes to the minimum scale-in.
Imagine, running multiple primary processed of such DPDK applications, 
users might want to overlap the coremasks for scaling. However, it would 
still make sense to run the master lcores on different CPU cores.

In DPDK vSwitch we might end up in such a scenario with a future release:

Thanks,

Simon

Hi all,

does anyone have interest in this functionality?

I think this is important and useful.
Since we should care about core assignment to get high performance
and the master lcore thread is special in DPDK, we will want to
assign the master to the target core.
For example, with hyperthreading I'd like to make a pair of packet
processing threads into one physical core and separate the master
thread which does some management.

thanks,
Hiroshi

Thank you for showing your interest.
Does it mean you carefully reviewed this patch? In this case, I'd appreciate
a note "Reviewed-by:".

Yes, I think this is useful for DPDK vSwitch.

Not yet deeply, wait a bit, we're testing this patch in our application.
Will report if it works fine.

By the way, we should add the same code into the BSD code, right?

Right.
I'd prefer to reduce the duplicated footprint and have more common code
between BSD and Linux. But waiting this enhancement, we have to maintain
the duplicated code for BSD.

Hi all,

I can provide the same patch also for BSD. However, I do not have a 
machine to test it. Interested?

Hi all,

the only issue I could imagine is that current DPDK applications are
utilizing the implicit assumption that the master lcore is always set to
the first available lcore. I would consider this as a "bug" in the
application because it sets up its worker threads not "properly".

However, as far I could check it, the DPDK framework seems to cope with
it correctly.
It would be nice if somebody else could confirm my statement.

Thanks,

Simon

Sorry a delay, I had confirmed the functionality.

Hi Simon,

I think that forcing a particular command line order is not that clean.  It might be better to remove the cfg->master_lcore setting from eal_parse_coremask(), and defer the selection of the master lcore until all of the command-line options have been parsed.  If —master-lcore was specified, save the value and use that, otherwise rte_get_next_lcore(-1, 0, 0) can return the first bit set in the coremask.

Hi Simon,

Thanks for the patch, this will be useful for us.  I responded separately to your original post with one suggestion.

Our application currently assumes that DPDK will assign the first bit set in the coremask to the master lcore.  As far as I can tell, this is hard-coded as of 1.7.1.  But we would like the ability for our application to specify any bit from the coremask to serve as the master lcore.

I don’t see any compatibility issues with this.  Existing applications should behave as before.

Thomas, could this be accepted for the 1.8 release?  Or will that only happen if the BSD side can be patched as well?

No need for BSD side patch because option management is now common between
BSD and Linux. I'm going to send an updated version of this patch.

It's not sufficient: eal_parse_master_lcore() requires cfg->lcore_role
to be set. There is a real dependency between these 2 options.
I'm going to submit a v2. Feel free to improve it with another patch.

Why not: "errno || parsing_end[0] != 0"
?

Otherwise something like "1blah" would be considered as valid input.

If negative values are not allowed, then why not:

unsigned long master_lcore;
...
master_lcore = strtoul(...)

if(master_clore > RTE_MAX_LCORE)

I don't really like an idea of introducing strict order between -c and  "--master-lcore..
Can we move check for coremask_ok/ and assignment of cfg->master_lcore out of  
while (getopt_long(...)) loop?

I was nit-picking; although it might be nice if the new option is given, to verify the specified lcore is in the coremask.  I will ack v2 though and this can be improved some other time.

Minor comments inline below, I don’t need to see another patch.

Thanks,

Missing a space between “id” and “after”.

Same here in the Linux version of the code.

Good point.

Matter of taste. Your code is less explicit.
But it should be
	if(master_clore >= RTE_MAX_LCORE)
Anyone else to vote for 1 solution or the other?

Me too. And Aaron too :)

Yes we should move the check outside of the loop.
First we should migrate all flags check in a common function for BSD and Linux.

Simon made the v1. I made the v2. Any volunteer for the v3?

Thanks, that was quick! Quicker than me, actually. ;-)

I started to rebase and modify my previous patch as well but I got a bit 
stuck because I wanted to try to solve the command order issue that 
Aaron mentioned. In fact, I agree with him in this point. However, I 
figured out that more preceding patches might be required to get this 
proberly done.
The issue is that I would like to have all code that changes the master 
lcore placed completely in eal_common_options.c.
Something like eal_common_sanity_check() and eal_common_configure() 
functions would be needed because eal_parse_common_option() is just 
called within the option parsing loop. Maybe we can improve this later?

I am fine with this patch but I have some comments inlined.
In general: acknowledged from my side.

Thanks a lot,

Simon

A space is missing in this message.

It might be helpful to return another error code (e.g., -2) that signals 
that the specified lcore is not part of the lcore mask.

It might be nice here to get another message displayed whenever the 
specified lcore is not part of the core mask (see comment ahead).
