Subject: [dpdk-dev] [PATCH v2 1/2] ethdev: introduce conntrack flow action and item
Date: Fri, 16 Apr 2021 00:41:16 +0800
Message-ID: <1618504877-95597-2-git-send-email-bingz@nvidia.com> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <1618504877-95597-1-git-send-email-bingz@nvidia.com>

This commit introduced the conntrack action and item.

Usually the HW offloading is stateless. For some stateful offloading
like a TCP connection, HW module will help provide the ability of a
full offloading w/o SW participation after the connection was
established.

The basic usage is that in the first flow the application should add
the conntrack action and in the following flow(s) the application
should use the conntrack item to match on the result.

A TCP connection has two directions traffic. To set a conntrack
action context correctly, information from packets of both directions
are required.

The conntrack action should be created on one port and supply the
peer port as a parameter to the action. After context creating, it
could only be used between the ports (dual-port mode) or a single
port. The application should modify the action via the API
"action_handle_update" only when before using it to create a flow
with opposite direction. This will help the driver to recognize the
direction of the flow to be created, especially in single port mode.
The traffic from both directions will go through the same port if
the application works as an "forwarding engine" but not a end point.
There is no need to call the update interface if the subsequent flows
have nothing to be changed.

Query will be supported via action_ctx_query interface, about the
current packets information and connection status. Tha fields
query capabilities depends on the HW.

For the packets received during the conntrack setup, it is suggested
to re-inject the packets in order to take full advantage of the
conntrack. Only the valid packets should pass the conntrack, packets
with invalid TCP information, like out of window, or with invalid
header, like malformed, should not pass.
