                 Running DPDK in a LXC-based Container 
================================================================================
Author: Krishnamurthy Jambur

Note: This README assumes you have the a LXC based container running on 
      the IA platform. This was tested on Windriver OVP Linux 6.0 

In this README we are will go through some of the unique steps involved 
in attaching a NIC to the LXC-based Container and the running a sample 
DPDP application in the container. 

1. Attaching NIC device to the container
----------------------------------------
Let's assume for this example that you would like to have a management interface
and then separate dedicated 10G NIC to run DPDK. With this requirement your LXC 
config file should have one networking sections one for veth. For the 10G NIC we
need to use uio device file system 

veth uses a paired set of network interfaces, one inside the container specified 
by the option lxc.network.name, and one in the host specified by the option 
lxc.network.pair. The latter is attached automatically to a bridge in the host 
if the name of the bridge is specified by the option lxc.network.link.

# networking-veth
lxc.network.type = veth
lxc.network.link = virbr0
lxc.network.veth.pair = vc0
lxc.network.name = eth0
lxc.network.hwaddr = ac:de:48:34:01:01
lxc.network.flags = up
lxc.network.ipv4 = 192.168.122.12/24
lxc.network.ipv4.gateway = 192.168.122.1
 
once you have this your LXC container will have an IP using bridge. Next step 
is to install DPDK igb_uio on the host and then bind it to the the 10G Niantic 
NIC ports as usual. Once installed do ls -l /dev/uio* on the host. These are the
uioX interface corresponding to the the NIC ports to which DPDK igb_uio is 
binded. DPDK application will use these device files. In order to provide access
to these device files inside the LXC container not down the major number [e.g. 
in this case 249] and add this config to the LXC config file 

lxc.cgroup.devices.allow = c 249:* rwm

once you start the container then you need to create these uio0, uio1,... 
devices nodes inside the container file system using mknod command as usual 
with the same major and minor numbers. 

mknod /dev/uio3 c 249 0
mknod /dev/uio3 c 249 3
mknod /dev/uio2 c 249 2
mknod /dev/uio1 c 249 1

2. Host allocated Huge page access inside container
----------------------------------------------------
For this set it is assumes that you would have pre-allocated hugepages and 
mounted on the on the host. Once you have this set-up then you need to provide 
access to hugetlbfs file system to the container using the LXC config file. 

lxc.mount.entry = /mnt/huge mnt/huge none bind,create=dir 0 0

once you have this DPDK application will be able to use the host mounted huge 
pages in the container. 

Next step is run the DPDK application as usual in the LXC Container

Here is the docker step, it is quite straightforward. Basically they are the same as LXC.

UIO:
docker run -i -t  --device=/dev/uio0:/dev/uio0 --device=/dev/uio1:/dev/uio1 -v /mnt:/mnt    fedora20-dpdk-2 /bin/bash

VFIO:
docker run -i -t  --privileged  --device=/dev/vfio/vfio:/dev/vfio/vfio --device=/dev/vfio/22:/dev/vfio/22  -v /mnt:/mnt    -v /var/run:/var/run  fedora20-dpdk-2 /bin/bash 
There are open/ioctl calls on vfio device files, and I haven't figured out exactly the capability we need to give to docker for each sys call, otherwise we could remove --privilege option.

MP process:
With /var/run or /var/run/.rte_* mounted to docker, we could run multiple process between dockers.  
(We could generate the dpdk cfg files in /var/run/dpdk, then we could mount whole directories to docker without specify each file).

Hi Bruce,

Thanks a lot for pointing it out.. Yes this is exactly what I was facing..
If I have got it right the solution to my problem should be --file-prefix
and -m (--socket-mem) options.

Best Regards,

DPDK scans the mounted filesystems to determine the directory where hugetlbfs
is mounted, and uses that directory. If you have multiple hugetlbfs mount points
then you can use --huge-dir to select just one of them. However, that's probably
not what you want, unless you have multiple hugepage sizes (e.g. 1G and 2M) and
want one app to use one size, and the other app to use the other size.

If you use --file-prefix to specify different prefixes for the different apps,
you almost certainly also need to use "-m" or "--socket-mem" flags to limit the
amount of memory each process uses. Without that option the first app to run
will use all the hugepage memory, leaving none for the other one.

Please see also the section "Running Multiple Independent DPDK Applications"
section of the Programmer's Guide in the DPDK documentation:

Hi Alejandro,

Thanks for the response. I tried the --file-prefix option.. But its the
same issue.. :( Looks like the --file-prefix option only determines the
name of the pages to be created under /mnt/huge/.

I will try the --huge-dir option as well and see if I can do anything with
it or not...

Thanks and Regards,
Pushpasis

Did you try with the --file-prefix testpmd option?

Just use different file-prefix for each DPDK app running.

Hi Krishna,

Off-late I have been investigating DPDK on Linux containers.. I came across
this thread and found it very helpful.. But I still find some issues when I
try to run the same DPDK application simultaneously on more than one LXC
containers..

Even when following the example provided in this thread. I am unable to run
the same application simultaneously in both host and more than one LXC
containers..
Is there any way to achieve the same..

The basic issue I see in the DPDK design that kit assumes that it will use
/mnt/huge/ file-path before using it.. making it unavailable to any other
process.. Can this be changed to use the sub-directory /mnt/huge/$(uname
-n)/<PID>. That way it cannot stop other process running on host/lxc from
using the hugepages.. I have donot have much knowledge about how the
hugepage filesystem works.. so pardon my ignorance... :)

Looking forward to some help on this.

Regards,
-Pushpasis

Hi All,

I am trying to run DPDK application on Ubuntu based Conatiner, I had
followed the steps as described by "Krishnamurthy Jambur" in his earlier
post

lxc.cgroup.devices.allow = c 249:* rwm
mknod /dev/uio0 c 249 0
lxc.mount.entry = /mnt/huge mnt/huge none bind,create=dir 0 0

But after starting the application inside container I am getting the below
error

EAL: Master lcore 4 is ready (tid=7491b900;cpuset=[4])
PMD: ENICPMD trace: rte_enic_pmd_init
EAL: PCI device 0000:02:00.0 on NUMA socket 0

EAL: Cannot open /sys/class/uio/uio0/device/config: Permission denied
EAL: Error - exiting with code: 1
  Cause: Requested device 0000:02:00.2 cannot be used

Any pointers to resolve this error?
