Subject: Re: [dpdk-dev] [PATCH 0/8] add flow action map
Date: Thu, 4 Jun 2020 11:21:37 +0000
Message-ID: <DM6PR11MB2537EC1F3F9F748F27732DE1EF890@DM6PR11MB2537.namprd11.prod.outlook.com> (raw)

Hi Ori,

This patchset is intended to add support in the rte_flow API for the Dynamic Device Personalization (DDP) feature on the Intel i40e PMD by adding a map action.

https://software.intel.com/content/www/us/en/develop/articles/dynamic-device-personalization-for-intel-ethernet-700-series.html

pctype means Packet Classification type.
flowtype is the index into the pctype table on the i40e.

The map action is intended to insert the specified pctype into the pctype table at index specified by the flowtype. 
 
At present the DDP feature uses the following commands in testpmd:
/* map pctype 15 to flowtype 27 */
# testpmd> port config 0 pctype mapping update 15 27
# testpmd> show  port 0 pctype mapping
pctype: 15  ->  flowtype: 27 


In future the application will create the following rule:
# testpmd> flow create 0 ingress pattern end actions map pctype 15 flowtype 27 / end
# testpmd> show port 0 pctype mapping
 pctype: 15  ->  flowtype: 27

Regards,

Bernard.
