Hello Jan,

You can have a look in series [1] where we propose to add APIs to DPDK20.11 for both mirroring and sampling for packets, with additional actions of the different traffic.

>Hello all,

>we are looking for a way to duplicate ingress traffic in hardware.

>There is an example in [1] suggesting to insert two fate actions into the RTE Flow
>actions array like:
>
>  flow create 0 ingress pattern end \
>      actions queue index 0 / void / queue index 1 / end
>
>But our experience is that PMDs reject two fate actions (tried with mlx5). Another
>similar approach would be to deliver every single packet into two virtual
>functions:
>
>  flow create 0 ingress pattern end \
>     actions vf index 0 / vf index 1 / end
>
>Third possibility was to use passthru:
>
>  flow create 0 ingress pattern end \
>      actions passthru / vf index 0 / end
>  flow create 0 ingress pattern end \
>      actions vf index 1 / end
>
>Again, tried on mlx5 and it does not support the passthru.
>
>Last idea was to use isolate with passthru (to deliver both to DPDK application
>and to the kernel) but again there was no support on mlx5 for passthru...
>
>  flow isolate 0 true
>  flow create 0 ingress pattern end actions passthru / rss end / end
>
>Is there any other possibility or PMD+NIC that is known to solve such issue?
