Subject: [spp] [PATCH] version: 18.08.4
Date: Tue,  1 Oct 2019 03:58:16 +0900	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <> (raw)

This patch is to update SPP to v18.08.4.

* Fix bug for deleting vhost PMD in spp_nfv.

* Add REST APIs for adding and deleting ports from primary process.

* Add `bin/` to start spp-ctl, CLI and spp_primary for quick
  start. Options for processes are defined in `bin/`.

* Update managing devices given with `--vdev` because mechanism of
  sharing vdevs between primary and secondary is changed in DPDK.

* Fix assigning wrong master lcore in which it is always  assigned 0
  if it is given other than 0.

* Fix wrong finalization if rte_eal_init() is failed.

  because it is only used in secondary worker processes.

* Disable to launch secondary processes with the same IDs wrongly.

* Rename directory `controller` to `cli`, and label name in git log,
  because it should be distinguished from spp-ctl.

* For testing behaviours of spp_primary, enable to add arbitrary vdevs
  and add `--dry-run` option.
    $ bin/ --dry-run

* Fix compile error of spp_pcap in SPP container.

* Refactor spp_vf, spp_mirror and spp_pcap to reduce duplicated
  definitions and files.

* Add config option for SPP CLI to specify any of config file.
    $ python3 src/ --config /path/to/your/config.yml

* Add validation for config command to check given value.

* Update `topo` command.
  - Add supported types of secondary processes other than spp_nfv.
  - Add supported port types for spp_pcap.
  - remove `topo_resize` because it is changed to be set from `config`
  - Revise placeholder for styles.
  - Several bug fixes.

* Add blacklist and whitelist options for SPP container.

* Add app containers for `l3fwd-acl` and `suricata`[1]. For suricata,
  it is also added a build script for.
  - [1]

* Add recipes for testing usecases described in docs.

* Revise ringlatencystats, but still remained some problems for
  compiling in some environments. It is a TODO should be fixed in
  a future.

* Fix many TODOs.

* And many misc updates for improving usability and maintainability.

* Update documentation for above changes.
