Subject: [dpdk-dev] [PATCH 2/3] net/virtio: allocate fake mbuf in Rx queue
Date: Mon, 21 Dec 2020 17:14:55 +0100
Message-ID: <20201221161456.31696-3-maxime.coquelin@redhat.com> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <20201221161456.31696-1-maxime.coquelin@redhat.com>

While it is worth clarifying whether the fake mbuf
in virtnet_rx struct is really necessary, it is sure
that it heavily impacts cache usage by being part of
the struct. Indeed, it takes uses cachelines, and
requires alignement on a cacheline.

Before this series, it means it took 120 bytes in
virtnet_rx struct:

struct virtnet_rx {
	struct virtqueue *         vq;                   /*     0     8 */

	/* XXX 56 bytes hole, try to pack */

	/* --- cacheline 1 boundary (64 bytes) --- */
	struct rte_mbuf            fake_mbuf __attribute__((__aligned__(64))); /*    64   128 */
	/* --- cacheline 3 boundary (192 bytes) --- */

This patch allocates it using malloc in order to optimize
virtnet_rx cache usage and so virtqueue cache usage.
