> Subject: [PATCH v2] net/mlx5: improve vMPRQ descriptors allocation locality
> There is a performance penalty for the replenish scheme used in vectorized Rx
> burst for both MPRQ and SPRQ.
> Mbuf elements are being filled at the end of the mbufs array and being
> replenished at the beginning. That leads to an increase in cache misses and the
> performance drop.
> The more Rx descriptors are used the worse the situation.
> Change the allocation scheme for vectorized MPRQ Rx burst:
> allocate new mbufs only when consumed mbufs are almost depleted (always
> have one burst gap between allocated and consumed indices). Keeping a small
> number of mbufs allocated improves cache locality and improves performance
> a lot.
> Unfortunately, this approach cannot be applied to SPRQ Rx burst routine. In
> MPRQ Rx burst we simply copy packets from external MPRQ buffers or attach
> these buffers to mbufs.
> In SPRQ Rx burst we allow the NIC to fill mbufs for us.
> Hence keeping a small number of allocated mbufs will limit NIC ability to fill as
> many buffers as possible. This fact offsets the advantage of better cache
> locality.
