Thomas/Waterman,

I couldn't reproduce the reported issue on v1.8.0-rc1 and both l2fwd and l3fwd works fine using the same command posted.

I don't have the exact setup but I suspect this is related as the errors looks like a tx queue param used is not supported by vmxnet3 backend.  The patchset does not touch the txq config path so it's not clear how it breaks rte_eth_tx_queue_setup().  So my question to Waterman:
(1) Is this a regression on the same branch, i.e. running the unpatched build works but failed with the patch applied?
(2) By any chance did you change the following struct in main.c for those sample programs to a different value, in particular txq_flags?

static const struct rte_eth_txconf tx_conf = {
        .tx_thresh = {
                .pthresh = TX_PTHRESH,
                .hthresh = TX_HTHRESH,
                .wthresh = TX_WTHRESH,
        },
        .tx_free_thresh = 0, /* Use PMD default values */
        .tx_rs_thresh = 0, /* Use PMD default values */
        .txq_flags = (ETH_TXQ_FLAGS_NOMULTSEGS |   <== any changes here?
                      ETH_TXQ_FLAGS_NOVLANOFFL |
                      ETH_TXQ_FLAGS_NOXSUMSCTP |
                      ETH_TXQ_FLAGS_NOXSUMUDP |
                      ETH_TXQ_FLAGS_NOXSUMTCP)
};

Thanks,
Yong

Hi Yong,

Is there any progress with this patchset?

Thanks

Before the patch, we are seeing ~900K PPS with 65% cpu of a core used for DPDK.  After the patch, we are seeing the same pkt rate with only 45% of a core used.  CPU usage is collected factoring our the idle loop cost.  The packet rate is a result of the mode we used for vmxnet3 (pure emulation mode running default number of hypervisor contexts).  I can add these info in the review request.
