Subject: [dpdk-dev] ixgbe vector rx does not conform to rte_eth_rx_burst() API
Date: Wed, 15 Jul 2020 18:02:50 +0200
Message-ID: <98CBD80474FA8B44BF855DF32C47DC35C61127@smartserver.smartshare.dk> (raw)

Wei, Jeff,

For the ixgbe driver using vector functions, i.e. ixgbe_recv_pkts_vec(), calling rte_eth_rx_burst() with nb_pkts > RTE_IXGBE_MAX_RX_BURST only returns RTE_IXGBE_MAX_RX_BURST packets. E.g. calling rte_eth_rx_burst() with nb_pkts=64 only returns 32 packets.


The API description of rte_eth_rx_burst() says:

<quote>
The rte_eth_rx_burst() function returns the number of packets actually retrieved, which is the number of rte_mbuf data structures effectively supplied into the rx_pkts array. A return value equal to nb_pkts indicates that the RX queue contained at least rx_pkts packets, and this is likely to signify that other received packets remain in the input queue. Applications implementing a "retrieve as much received packets as possible" policy can check this specific case and keep invoking the rte_eth_rx_burst() function until a value less than nb_pkts is returned.
</quote>

The driver implementation does not conform to the documented behavior for "retrieve as much received packets as possible" applications.
