Hi,

Sure I'll handle the title with the right prefix.

- consequence on memory usage?
I don't think it will affect much,
Since we are reading from the same buffer all the time,
Read -> reset -> read again -> ...etc

- How critical is this change?
For now it's not that critical, but for testing perspective I think it's critical,
And it's a must to have so we can check un touched scenarios.
Example:
one rule can have outer items, inner items, actions ={ header rewrite, meta actions, duplicate actions, fate action, ..etc} 
thus to test such combination we need to parse more in the cmdline

- Which kind of command is so long?
RTE_FLOW Example:
flow create 2 ingress priority 0 group 4 transfer pattern eth / ipv4 tos spec 0x0 ttl spec 0x0 proto spec 0x6 src spec 4.4.4.11 dst spec 4.4.4.10 tos mask 0x0 ttl mask 0x0 proto mask 0x0 src mask 255.255.255.255 dst mask 255.255.255.255 / tcp src spec 5001 dst spec 38392 flags spec 0x0 src mask 65535 dst mask 65535 flags mask 0x5 / tag index is 0 data spec 0x00000200 data mask 0x0000ff00 / end actions count / set_tag index 0 data 0x00000200 mask 0x0000ff00 / set_tag index 0 data 0x0000002a mask 0x000000ff / set_meta data 0x00000001 mask 0x0000ffff / jump group 7 / end

BRs,
Wisam Jaddo

Subject: Re: [dpdk-stable] [PATCH] lib/cmdline_rdline: increase command line buf size

Hi,

About the title, I suggest:
cmdline: increase maximum line length

I feel 2k is reasonable.
What is the consequence on memory usage?

How critical is this change?
Which kind of command is so long?
