Subject: [dpdk-dev] [PATCH v6 0/3] app/test: unit test to measure cycles per packet
Date: Mon, 27 Oct 2014 09:20:06 +0800
Message-ID: <1414372809-14044-1-git-send-email-cunming.liang@intel.com> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <1414130282-17981-1-git-send-email-cunming.liang@intel.com>

v6 update:
# leave FUNC_PTR_OR_*_RET unmodified

v5 update:
# fix the confusing of retval in some API of rte_ethdev

v4 ignore

v3 update:
# Codes refine according to the feedback.
  1. add ether_format_addr to rte_ether.h
  2. fix typo in code comments.
  3. %lu to %PRIu64, fixing 32-bit targets compilation err
# merge 2 small incremental patches to the first one.
  The whole unit test as a single patch in [PATCH v3 2/2]
# rebase code to the latest master

v2 update:
Rebase code to the latest master branch.

It provides unit test to measure cycles/packet in NIC loopback mode.
It simply gives the average cycles of IO used per packet without test equipment.
When doing the test, make sure the link is UP.

There's two stream control mode support, one is continues, another is burst.
The former continues to forward the injected packets until reaching a certain amount of number.
The latter one stop when all the injected packets are received.
In burst stream, now measure two situations, with or without desc. cache conflict.
By default, it runs in continues stream mode to measure the whole rxtx.

Usage Example:
1. Run unit test app in interactive mode
    app/test -c f -n 4 -- -i
2. Set stream control mode, by default is continuous
    set_rxtx_sc [continuous|poll_before_xmit|poll_after_xmit]
3. If choose continuous stream, there are another two options can configure
    3.1 choose rx/tx pair, default is vector
        set_rxtx_mode [vector|scalar|full|hybrid]
        Note: To get acurate scalar fast, plz choose 'vector' or 'hybrid' without INC_VEC=y in config 
    3.2 choose the area of masurement, default is rxtx
        set_rxtx_anchor [rxtx|rxonly|txonly]
4. Run and wait for the result
    pmd_perf_autotest

For who simply just want to see how much cycles cost per packet.
Compile DPDK, Run 'app/test', and type 'pmd_perf_autotest', that's it.
Nothing else needs to configure. 
Using other options when you understand and what to measures more. 

 
BTW, [1/3] is the same patch as below one.
