From: Shun Hao <shunh@nvidia.com>

This fixes the meter statistics issue that when using multiple meters,
only one meter has stats value.

To match the correct meter in policer table, now the meter_id is also
used in its match criteria, so only one color and one drop matcher are
needed. And both meter_id and flow_id will be written to related registers
in meter prefix flow.

Fixes: 46a5e6bc6a ("net/mlx5: prepare meter flow tables")
Cc: stable@dpdk.org

* [dpdk-stable] [PATCH v2 02/13] net/mlx5: fix meter statistics
       [not found] ` <20210402151430.1531529-1-lizh@nvidia.com>
@ 2021-04-02 15:14   ` Li Zhang
  0 siblings, 0 replies; 8+ messages in thread
From: Li Zhang @ 2021-04-02 15:14 UTC (permalink / raw)
  To: lizh; +Cc: Shun Hao, stable

From: Shun Hao <shunh@nvidia.com>

This fixes the meter statistics issue that when using multiple meters,
only one meter has stats value.

To match the correct meter in policer table, now the meter_id is also
used in its match criteria, so only one color and one drop matcher are
needed. And both meter_id and flow_id will be written to related registers
in meter prefix flow.

Fixes: 46a5e6bc6a ("net/mlx5: prepare meter flow tables")
Cc: stable@dpdk.org

* [dpdk-stable] [PATCH v2 02/13] net/mlx5: fix meter statistics
       [not found] ` <20210402151627.1531623-1-lizh@nvidia.com>

  To: dekelp, orika, viacheslavo, matan, shahafs, Suanming Mou
  Cc: dev, thomas, rasland, roniba, Shun Hao, stable

From: Shun Hao <shunh@nvidia.com>

This fixes the meter statistics issue that when using multiple meters,
only one meter has stats value.

To match the correct meter in policer table, now the meter_id is also
used in its match criteria, so only one color and one drop matcher are
needed. And both meter_id and flow_id will be written to related registers
in meter prefix flow.

Fixes: 46a5e6bc6a ("net/mlx5: prepare meter flow tables")
Cc: stable@dpdk.org

* [dpdk-stable] [PATCH v3 03/14] net/mlx5: fix meter statistics
       [not found] ` <20210412160817.1986716-1-lizh@nvidia.com>

  To: lizh; +Cc: Shun Hao, stable, Matan Azrad

From: Shun Hao <shunh@nvidia.com>

Currently, packets after meter will be steered to a global policer
table,
which includes green/red color rules for every meter, so as to have
counter statistics of each color in every meter.

There's a bug that all the rules in global policer table are matching
only color criteria, so all packets will be counted to one meter only,
and other meter statistics are always zero.

This patch does these:
1. The rules in policer table matches both meter index and color, so
packet after meter could be counted to the correct meter counter.
2. The meter index and flow index are now sharing the available
register bits dynamically. Meter index starts from lsb, and flow
index starts from msb.

Fixes: 46a5e6bc6a ("net/mlx5: prepare meter flow tables")

* [dpdk-stable] [PATCH v3 03/14] net/mlx5: fix meter statistics
       [not found] ` <20210413001033.1999355-1-lizh@nvidia.com>

From: Shun Hao <shunh@nvidia.com>

Currently, packets after meter will be steered to a global policer
table,
which includes green/red color rules for every meter, so as to have
counter statistics of each color in every meter.

There's a bug that all the rules in global policer table are matching
only color criteria, so all packets will be counted to one meter only,
and other meter statistics are always zero.

This patch does these:
1. The rules in policer table matches both meter index and color, so
packet after meter could be counted to the correct meter counter.
2. The meter index and flow index are now sharing the available
register bits dynamically. Meter index starts from lsb, and flow
index starts from msb.

Fixes: 46a5e6bc6a ("net/mlx5: prepare meter flow tables")

* [dpdk-stable] [PATCH v4 03/14] net/mlx5: fix meter statistics
       [not found] ` <20210414025736.31142-1-lizh@nvidia.com>

From: Shun Hao <shunh@nvidia.com>

Currently, packets after meter will be steered to a global policer
table,
which includes green/red color rules for every meter, so as to have
counter statistics of each color in every meter.

There's a bug that all the rules in global policer table are matching
only color criteria, so all packets will be counted to one meter only,
and other meter statistics are always zero.

This patch does these:
1. The rules in policer table matches both meter index and color, so
packet after meter could be counted to the correct meter counter.
2. The meter index and flow index are now sharing the available
register bits dynamically. Meter index starts from lsb, and flow
index starts from msb.

Fixes: 46a5e6bc6a ("net/mlx5: prepare meter flow tables")

* [dpdk-stable] [PATCH v5 03/14] net/mlx5: fix meter statistics
       [not found] ` <20210415151135.2098674-1-lizh@nvidia.com>

  Cc: dev, thomas, rasland, roniba, Shun Hao, stable

From: Shun Hao <shunh@nvidia.com>

Currently, packets after meter will be steered to a global policer
table,
which includes green/red color rules for every meter, so as to have
counter statistics of each color in every meter.

There's a bug that all the rules in global policer table are matching
only color criteria, so all packets will be counted to one meter only,
and other meter statistics are always zero.

This patch does these:
1. The rules in policer table matches both meter index and color, so
packet after meter could be counted to the correct meter counter.
2. The meter index and flow index are now sharing the available
register bits dynamically. Meter index starts from lsb, and flow
index starts from msb.

Fixes: 46a5e6bc6a ("net/mlx5: prepare meter flow tables")

* [dpdk-stable] [PATCH v6 03/15] net/mlx5: fix meter statistics

From: Shun Hao <shunh@nvidia.com>

Currently, packets after meter will be steered to a global policer
table,
which includes green/red color rules for every meter, so as to have
counter statistics of each color in every meter.

There's a bug that all the rules in global policer table are matching
only color criteria, so all packets will be counted to one meter only,
and other meter statistics are always zero.

This patch does these:
1. The rules in policer table matches both meter index and color, so
packet after meter could be counted to the correct meter counter.
2. The meter index and flow index are now sharing the available
register bits dynamically. Meter index starts from lsb, and flow
index starts from msb.

Fixes: 46a5e6bc6a ("net/mlx5: prepare meter flow tables")
