The order of mempool initiation affects mempool index in the
rte_mempool_ops_table. For example, when building APPs with:

$ gcc -lrte_mempool_bucket -lrte_mempool_ring ...

The "bucket" mempool will be registered firstly, and its index
in table is 0 while the index of "ring" mempool is 1. DPDK
uses the mk/rte.app.mk to build APPs, and others, for example,
Open vSwitch, use the libdpdk.a or libdpdk.so to build it.
The mempool lib linked in dpdk and Open vSwitch is different.

The mempool can be used between primary and secondary process,
such as dpdk-pdump and pdump-pmd/Open vSwitch(pdump enabled).
There will be a crash because dpdk-pdump creates the "ring_mp_mc"
ring which index in table is 0, but the index of "bucket" ring
is 0 in Open vSwitch. If Open vSwitch use the index 0 to get
mempool ops and malloc memory from mempool. The crash will occur:

    bucket_dequeue (access null and crash)
    rte_mempool_get_ops (should get "ring_mp_mc",
                         but get "bucket" mempool)
    rte_mempool_ops_dequeue_bulk
    ...
    rte_pktmbuf_alloc
    rte_pktmbuf_copy
    pdump_copy
    pdump_rx
    rte_eth_rx_burst

To avoid the crash, there are some solution:
* constructor priority: Different mempool uses different
  priority in RTE_INIT, but it's not easy to maintain.

* change mk/rte.app.mk: Change the order in mk/rte.app.mk to
  be same as libdpdk.a/libdpdk.so, but when adding a new mempool
  driver in future, we must make sure the order.

* register mempool orderly: Sort the mempool when registering,
  so the lib linked will not affect the index in mempool table.

+1 for the fix.
For the implementation, why not use qsort_r() for sorting?

The implementation is easy, and the number of mempool driver is not too large.
But we can use the qsort_r to implement it.

Since it is in a slow path, IMO, better to use standard sort functions

The order of mempool initiation affects mempool index in the
rte_mempool_ops_table. For example, when building APPs with:

$ gcc -lrte_mempool_bucket -lrte_mempool_ring ...

The "bucket" mempool will be registered firstly, and its index
in table is 0 while the index of "ring" mempool is 1. DPDK
uses the mk/rte.app.mk to build APPs, and others, for example,
Open vSwitch, use the libdpdk.a or libdpdk.so to build it.
The mempool lib linked in dpdk and Open vSwitch is different.

The mempool can be used between primary and secondary process,
such as dpdk-pdump and pdump-pmd/Open vSwitch(pdump enabled).
There will be a crash because dpdk-pdump creates the "ring_mp_mc"
ring which index in table is 0, but the index of "bucket" ring
is 0 in Open vSwitch. If Open vSwitch use the index 0 to get
mempool ops and malloc memory from mempool. The crash will occur:

    bucket_dequeue (access null and crash)
    rte_mempool_get_ops (should get "ring_mp_mc",
                         but get "bucket" mempool)
    rte_mempool_ops_dequeue_bulk
    ...
    rte_pktmbuf_alloc
    rte_pktmbuf_copy
    pdump_copy
    pdump_rx
    rte_eth_rx_burst

To avoid the crash, there are some solution:
* constructor priority: Different mempool uses different
  priority in RTE_INIT, but it's not easy to maintain.

* change mk/rte.app.mk: Change the order in mk/rte.app.mk to
  be same as libdpdk.a/libdpdk.so, but when adding a new mempool
  driver in future, we must make sure the order.

* register mempool orderly: Sort the mempool when registering,
  so the lib linked will not affect the index in mempool table.

Sorting the pool drivers certainly make things better than they
are today. However, there is still an issue as soon as the mempool
list is not the same on both sides.

I don't see any better solution anyway. Storing the ops pointers in the
shared memory won't work, since function addresses won't be the same in
the 2 processes.

Just one minor comment below.

The order of mempool initiation affects mempool index in the
rte_mempool_ops_table. For example, when building APPs with:

$ gcc -lrte_mempool_bucket -lrte_mempool_ring ...

The "bucket" mempool will be registered firstly, and its index
in table is 0 while the index of "ring" mempool is 1. DPDK
uses the mk/rte.app.mk to build APPs, and others, for example,
Open vSwitch, use the libdpdk.a or libdpdk.so to build it.
The mempool lib linked in dpdk and Open vSwitch is different.

The mempool can be used between primary and secondary process,
such as dpdk-pdump and pdump-pmd/Open vSwitch(pdump enabled).
There will be a crash because dpdk-pdump creates the "ring_mp_mc"
ring which index in table is 0, but the index of "bucket" ring
is 0 in Open vSwitch. If Open vSwitch use the index 0 to get
mempool ops and malloc memory from mempool. The crash will occur:

    bucket_dequeue (access null and crash)
    rte_mempool_get_ops (should get "ring_mp_mc",
                         but get "bucket" mempool)
    rte_mempool_ops_dequeue_bulk
    ...
    rte_pktmbuf_alloc
    rte_pktmbuf_copy
    pdump_copy
    pdump_rx
    rte_eth_rx_burst

To avoid the crash, there are some solution:
* constructor priority: Different mempool uses different
  priority in RTE_INIT, but it's not easy to maintain.

* change mk/rte.app.mk: Change the order in mk/rte.app.mk to
  be same as libdpdk.a/libdpdk.so, but when adding a new mempool
  driver in future, we must make sure the order.

* register mempool orderly: Sort the mempool when registering,
  so the lib linked will not affect the index in mempool table.

The patch is OK, but the fact that ops index changes during
mempool driver lifetime is frightening. In fact it breaks
rte_mempool_register_ops() return value semantics (read
as API break). The return value is not used in DPDK, but it
is a public function. If I'm not mistaken it should be taken
into account.

Also I remember patches which warn about above behaviour
in documentation. If behaviour changes, corresponding
documentation must be updated.

One more point. If the patch is finally accepted it definitely
deserves few lines in release notes.

OK, a separate patch should be sent before DPDK 20.05 release ?

Good points.

The fact that the ops index changes during mempool driver lifetime is
indeed frightening, especially knowning that this is a dynamic
registration that could happen at any moment in the life of the
application. Also, breaking the ABI is not desirable.

Let me try to propose something else to solve your issue:

1/ At init, the primary process allocates a struct in shared memory
   (named memzone):

   struct rte_mempool_shared_ops {
     size_t num_mempool_ops;
     struct {
       char name[RTE_MEMPOOL_OPS_NAMESIZE];
     } mempool_ops[RTE_MEMPOOL_MAX_OPS_IDX];
     char *mempool_ops_name[RTE_MEMPOOL_MAX_OPS_IDX];
     rte_spinlock_t mempool;
   }

2/ When we register a mempool ops, we first get a name and id from the
   shared struct: with the lock held, lookup for the registered name and
   return its index, else get the last id and copy the name in the struct.

3/ Then do as before (in the per-process global table), except that we
   reuse the registered id.

We can remove the num_ops field from rte_mempool_ops_table.

Thoughts?

Sorry if it wasn't clear, but my proposition was just an idea, I have no
time yet to work on it. Feel free to implement it by yourself, and I'll
help to review the patches.

Thanks,

This patch introduces last-init queue, user can register a
callback for theirs initialization. Running rte_last_init_run(),
the almost resource of DPDK are available, such as memzone, ring.
With this way, user don't introduce additional codes in eal layer.

[This patch will be used for next patch.]

From: Tonghao Zhang <xiangxia.m.yue@gmail.com>

The order of mempool initiation affects mempool index in the
rte_mempool_ops_table. For example, when building APPs with:

$ gcc -lrte_mempool_bucket -lrte_mempool_ring ...

The "bucket" mempool will be registered firstly, and its index
in table is 0 while the index of "ring" mempool is 1. DPDK
uses the mk/rte.app.mk to build APPs, and others, for example,
Open vSwitch, use the libdpdk.a or libdpdk.so to build it.
The mempool lib linked in dpdk and Open vSwitch is different.

The mempool can be used between primary and secondary process,
such as dpdk-pdump and pdump-pmd/Open vSwitch(pdump enabled).
There will be a crash because dpdk-pdump creates the "ring_mp_mc"
ring which index in table is 0, but the index of "bucket" ring
is 0 in Open vSwitch. If Open vSwitch use the index 0 to get
mempool ops and malloc memory from mempool. The crash will occur:

    bucket_dequeue (access null and crash)
    rte_mempool_get_ops (should get "ring_mp_mc",
                         but get "bucket" mempool)
    rte_mempool_ops_dequeue_bulk
    ...
    rte_pktmbuf_alloc
    rte_pktmbuf_copy
    pdump_copy
    pdump_rx
    rte_eth_rx_burst

To avoid the crash, there are some solution:
* constructor priority: Different mempool uses different
  priority in RTE_INIT, but it's not easy to maintain.

* change mk/rte.app.mk: Change the order in mk/rte.app.mk to
  be same as libdpdk.a/libdpdk.so, but when adding a new mempool
  driver in future, we must make sure the order.

* register mempool orderly: Sort the mempool when registering,
  so the lib linked will not affect the index in mempool table.
  but the number of mempool libraries may be different.

* shared memzone: The primary process allocates a struct in
  shared memory named memzone, When we register a mempool ops,
  we first get a name and id from the shared struct: with the lock held,
  lookup for the registered name and return its index, else
  get the last id and copy the name in the struct.

No need to expose this structure. Move to eal_private.h

Add Doxygen comment.

Should we change to rte_init_register()? add an enum to specify where to
call this RTE_INIT_PRE, RTE_INIT_POST to take care of the future needs.
Just thought of bringing this point to make sure we can use this
scheme for another use case IF ANY.


> +int rte_last_init_run(void);

No need to expose this function in public API. Move to eal_private.h.
Please start the internal functions with eal_(dont use rte_ for
internal functions)

From: Tonghao Zhang <xiangxia.m.yue@gmail.com>

This patch introduces last-init queue, user can register a
callback for theirs initialization. Running rte_last_init_run(),
the almost resource of DPDK are available, such as memzone, ring.
With this way, user don't introduce additional codes in eal layer.

[This patch will be used for next patch.]

v2:
* rename rte_last_init_register ->rte_init_register
* rename rte_last_init struct ->rte_init
* rename rte_init_cb ->rte_init_cb_t 
* free the rte_init node when not used.
* remove rte_init and others to eal_private.h
* add comments
* fix checkpatch warning

* [dpdk-dev] [PATCH dpdk-dev v2 2/2] mempool: use shared memzone for rte_mempool_ops

From: Tonghao Zhang <xiangxia.m.yue@gmail.com>

The order of mempool initiation affects mempool index in the
rte_mempool_ops_table. For example, when building APPs with:

$ gcc -lrte_mempool_bucket -lrte_mempool_ring ...

The "bucket" mempool will be registered firstly, and its index
in table is 0 while the index of "ring" mempool is 1. DPDK
uses the mk/rte.app.mk to build APPs, and others, for example,
Open vSwitch, use the libdpdk.a or libdpdk.so to build it.
The mempool lib linked in dpdk and Open vSwitch is different.

The mempool can be used between primary and secondary process,
such as dpdk-pdump and pdump-pmd/Open vSwitch(pdump enabled).
There will be a crash because dpdk-pdump creates the "ring_mp_mc"
ring which index in table is 0, but the index of "bucket" ring
is 0 in Open vSwitch. If Open vSwitch use the index 0 to get
mempool ops and malloc memory from mempool. The crash will occur:

    bucket_dequeue (access null and crash)
    rte_mempool_get_ops (should get "ring_mp_mc",
                         but get "bucket" mempool)
    rte_mempool_ops_dequeue_bulk
    ...
    rte_pktmbuf_alloc
    rte_pktmbuf_copy
    pdump_copy
    pdump_rx
    rte_eth_rx_burst

To avoid the crash, there are some solution:
* constructor priority: Different mempool uses different
  priority in RTE_INIT, but it's not easy to maintain.

* change mk/rte.app.mk: Change the order in mk/rte.app.mk to
  be same as libdpdk.a/libdpdk.so, but when adding a new mempool
  driver in future, we must make sure the order.

* register mempool orderly: Sort the mempool when registering,
  so the lib linked will not affect the index in mempool table.
  but the number of mempool libraries may be different.

* shared memzone: The primary process allocates a struct in
  shared memory named memzone, When we register a mempool ops,
  we first get a name and id from the shared struct: with the lock held,
  lookup for the registered name and return its index, else
  get the last id and copy the name in the struct.

Hi Jerin
This API will be invoked in mempool, if use that prefix, there is a
compile warning:
include/rte_mempool.h:933:2: error: ‘rte_init_register’ is deprecated
(declared at x86_64-native-linuxapp-gcc/include/rte_init.h:61): Symbol
is not yet part of stable ABI [-Werror=deprecated-declarations]

remove the __rte_experimal in the patch 2?

This patch introduces rte-init queue, users can register a callback
for theirs initialization. After the almost resource of DPDK are
available (e.g. memzone, ring), invoke eal_rte_init_run(). With this
way, users don't introduce additional codes in the eal layer.

* [dpdk-dev] [PATCH dpdk-dev v3 2/2] mempool: use shared memzone for rte_mempool_ops

From: Tonghao Zhang <xiangxia.m.yue@gmail.com>

The order of mempool initiation affects mempool index in the
rte_mempool_ops_table. For example, when building APPs with:

$ gcc -lrte_mempool_bucket -lrte_mempool_ring ...

The "bucket" mempool will be registered firstly, and its index
in table is 0 while the index of "ring" mempool is 1. DPDK
uses the mk/rte.app.mk to build APPs, and others, for example,
Open vSwitch, use the libdpdk.a or libdpdk.so to build it.
The mempool lib linked in dpdk and Open vSwitch is different.

The mempool can be used between primary and secondary process,
such as dpdk-pdump and pdump-pmd/Open vSwitch(pdump enabled).
There will be a crash because dpdk-pdump creates the "ring_mp_mc"
ring which index in table is 0, but the index of "bucket" ring
is 0 in Open vSwitch. If Open vSwitch use the index 0 to get
mempool ops and malloc memory from mempool. The crash will occur:

    bucket_dequeue (access null and crash)
    rte_mempool_get_ops (should get "ring_mp_mc",
                         but get "bucket" mempool)
    rte_mempool_ops_dequeue_bulk
    ...
    rte_pktmbuf_alloc
    rte_pktmbuf_copy
    pdump_copy
    pdump_rx
    rte_eth_rx_burst

To avoid the crash, there are some solution:
* constructor priority: Different mempool uses different
  priority in RTE_INIT, but it's not easy to maintain.

* change mk/rte.app.mk: Change the order in mk/rte.app.mk to
  be same as libdpdk.a/libdpdk.so, but when adding a new mempool
  driver in future, we must make sure the order.

* register mempool orderly: Sort the mempool when registering,
  so the lib linked will not affect the index in mempool table.
  but the number of mempool libraries may be different.

* shared memzone: The primary process allocates a struct in
  shared memory named memzone, When we register a mempool ops,
  we first get a name and id from the shared struct: with the lock held,
  lookup for the registered name and return its index, else
  get the last id and copy the name in the struct.

We are supposed to use pkg-config to link DPDK.
Does the problem appear between a DPDK compiled with meson
and an application linked with pkg-config information?

If the problem really needs to be solved,
the EAL patch (first of this series) needs to be discussed
and reviewed carefully. I don't imagine it being done in 20.05.

Is there any specific reason to change type from uint32_t used
above to size_t? I think that uint32_t is better here since
it is just a number, not a size of memory or related value.

I think we should sanity check 'name' here to be not
empty string (see review notes below).

Please, compare with '\0' as DPDK style guide says.

Changing formatting just makes review a bit more harder.

Why is it done in the patch? For me it looks like logically
different change if it is really required (properly motivated).

Why do you change from DEBUG to ERR here? It it not
directly related to the purpose of the patch.

Since rte_mempool_ops_table is filled in which zeros,
name string is empty by default. So, request with empty name
will match the first unused entry. I guess it is not what we
want here. I think we should handle empty string before the
loop and return -EINVAL.

I guess that should add the err code to rte_rrno ? but I am fine, not

Yes, because it is an error, so change that type. I change it in

As I said, it requires more discussion.

Hi Thomas,
The library mempool linked order can trigger that problem. but when
the library is loaded
dynamically, trigger that problem too.
as Olivier Matz said:
The fact that the ops index changes during mempool driver lifetime is
indeed frightening, especially knowning that this is a dynamic
registration that could happen at any moment in the life of the
application.

Hi Thomas,
For first patch, I guess we support a callback for other library, it
make the codes much cleaner
at eal layer. Otherwise, if we init for library, we may include their
header file.
There is a better solution ?

To summarize my understanding of the issu encountered by Tonghao:

Currently, it is not possible to call memzone_register() from an init
function (registered with RTE_INIT()). This is needed if we want to
store the list of registered mempool ops in a shared memory, available
from multiprocess.

Tonghao's patch 1/2 solves this issue. I tried to find alternatives
to this approach, but none of them seems satisfying:

- use RTE_PMD_REGISTER_VDEV() and rte_vdev_add_custom_scan() instead of
  RTE_INIT() in the MEMPOOL_REGISTER_OPS() macro to delay the
  initialization after eal_init(). This looks too complex (I made a POC
  of it, it someone is interested).

- synchronize mempool ops in shared memory when mempool_create() is
  called in the primary: this would probably works most of the time, but
  it is not a perfect solution as we cannot ensure that the primary
  application will create a mempool before the secondary comes up.

- introduce a mandatory call to rte_mempool_lib_init(): despite it's the
  usual way to initialize libs, this will break compatibility.

OK, let's discuss it once 20.05 is out.

Any news on this topic?
Is this issue still a problem?
