Subject: [dpdk-dev] [RFC PATCH v2 1/4] ethdev: add support for flow item transmit queue
Date: Sun, 13 Sep 2020 23:48:57 +0800
Message-ID: <1600012140-70151-2-git-send-email-bingz@nvidia.com> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <1600012140-70151-1-git-send-email-bingz@nvidia.com>

New rte_flow_item_tx_queue is introduced to support matching on the
traffic from a specific transmit queue. This is only for the egress
direction. For ingress, the receive queue index will be part of the
actions with ACTION QUEUE or RSS and there is no needs to match.

By adding this flow item, it will be easy for the application to
create some wildcard rules to distribute the egress traffic for the
further handling.

Normally, all the traffic from software to wire will have the same
wildcard rule. If the packets need to be handled in different ways,
packets' headers and metadata, etc. will be used for matching.

But in some cases, for example:
1. Packets from different TX queues will have different next common
   behaviors.
2. Hairpin TX traffic should have different behavior from software
   egress traffic.
Matching on the TX queue will help to reduce the rules number and
simplify the rules management.

The support for this new item will be decided by the PMD driver and
the capacity of the NIC.
