Subject: [dpdk-users] Unable to setup hugepages
Date: Mon, 31 May 2021 17:35:38 +0200
Message-ID: <48a96b06-3ffd-97df-5176-97096a0758bc@cybertestsystems.com.sg> (raw)

Hello,

After successfully installed the DPDK 20.11 on my Centos 8-Stream 
(minimal), I am trying to configure the hugepages but encounters a lot 
of difficulties.


I am trying to reserve 4 hugepages of 1GB.


Here the steps I have done following the documentation 
(https://doc.dpdk.org/guides-20.11/linux_gsg/sys_reqs.html):

Additional information about meminfo :

1 Step follow documentation

bash -c 'echo 2048 > /sys/kernel/mm/hugepages/hugepages-2048kB/nr_hugepages'

As we're working on a NUMA machine we do this too. (We even do the 
previous step because without it, it provides more errors)

bash -c 'echo 2048 > 
/sys/devices/system/node/node0/hugepages/hugepages-2048kB/nr_hugepages' && \
bash -c 'echo 2048 > 
/sys/devices/system/node/node1/hugepages/hugepages-2048kB/nr_hugepages'

mkdir /mnt/huge
mount -t hugetlbfs pagesize=1GB /mnt/huge

bash -c 'echo nodev /mnt/huge hugetlbfs pagesize=1GB 0 0 >> /etc/fstab'

So here the result of my meminfo (cat /proc/meminfo | grep Huge) :

AnonHugePages:     10240 kB
ShmemHugePages:        0 kB
FileHugePages:         0 kB
HugePages_Total:       0
HugePages_Free:        0
HugePages_Rsvd:        0
HugePages_Surp:        0
Hugepagesize:    1048576 kB
Hugetlb:         4194304 kB

It looks strange that there is no total and free hugepages.

I tried the dpdk-testpmd using the DPDK documentation : dpdk-testpmd -l 
0-3 -n 4 -- -i --nb-cores=2

EAL: Detected 48 lcore(s)
EAL: Detected 2 NUMA nodes
EAL: Detected static linkage of DPDK
EAL: Multi-process socket /var/run/dpdk/rte/mp_socket
EAL: Selected IOVA mode 'PA'
EAL: 2048 hugepages of size 2097152 reserved, but no mounted hugetlbfs 
found for that size
EAL: No free hugepages reported in hugepages-1048576kB
EAL: No free hugepages reported in hugepages-1048576kB
EAL: No available hugepages reported in hugepages-1048576kB
EAL: FATAL: Cannot get hugepage information.
EAL: Cannot get hugepage information.
EAL: Error - exiting with code: 1
   Cause: Cannot init EAL: Permission denied


So I checked in the /mnt/huge to look if files had been created (ls 
/mnt/huge/ -la) : Empty folder

Then I checked if my folder was correctly mounted : mount | grep huge
pagesize=1GB on /mnt/huge type hugetlbfs 
(rw,relatime,seclabel,pagesize=1024M)

Then I tried the helloworld example (make clean && make && 
./build/helloworld):

EAL: Detected 48 lcore(s)
EAL: Detected 2 NUMA nodes
EAL: Detected shared linkage of DPDK
EAL: Multi-process socket /var/run/dpdk/rte/mp_socket
EAL: Selected IOVA mode 'PA'
EAL: 2048 hugepages of size 2097152 reserved, but no mounted hugetlbfs 
found for that size
EAL: No free 1048576 kB hugepages reported on node 0

EAL: No available 1048576 kB hugepages reported
EAL: FATAL: Cannot get hugepage information.
EAL: Cannot get hugepage information.
PANIC in main():

1: [/usr/local/lib64/librte_eal.so.21(rte_dump_stack+0x1b) [0x7ff43aac79fb]]
Aborted (core dumped)


So I guessed the problem came from the : Hugepagesize:    1048576 kB 
(from cat /proc/meminfo | grep Huge).


2 Step adapt documentation

Then I decided to set the values for 1048576KB:

bash -c 'echo 4 > 
/sys/devices/system/node/node0/hugepages/hugepages-1048576kB/nr_hugepages'
bash -c 'echo 4 > 
/sys/devices/system/node/node1/hugepages/hugepages-1048576kB/nr_hugepages'
bash -c 'echo 4 > /sys/kernel/mm/hugepages/hugepages-1048576kB/nr_hugepages'


So here the result of my meminfo (cat /proc/meminfo | grep Huge) :

AnonHugePages:     10240 kB
ShmemHugePages:        0 kB
FileHugePages:         0 kB
HugePages_Total:       4
HugePages_Free:        4
HugePages_Rsvd:        0
HugePages_Surp:        0
Hugepagesize:    1048576 kB
Hugetlb:         8388608 kB

So here I have my 4 pages sat.

Then I retried the previous steps and here what I got :

dpdk-testpmd -l 0-3 -n 4 -- -i --nb-cores=2
EAL: Detected 48 lcore(s)
EAL: Detected 2 NUMA nodes
EAL: Detected static linkage of DPDK
EAL: Multi-process socket /var/run/dpdk/rte/mp_socket
EAL: Selected IOVA mode 'PA'
EAL: 2048 hugepages of size 2097152 reserved, but no mounted hugetlbfs 
found for that size
EAL: Probing VFIO support...

testpmd: create a new mbuf pool <mb_pool_0>: n=171456, size=2176, socket=0

testpmd>
Bye...


make clean && make && ./build/helloworld
EAL: Detected 48 lcore(s)
EAL: Detected 2 NUMA nodes
EAL: Detected shared linkage of DPDK
EAL: Multi-process socket /var/run/dpdk/rte/mp_socket
EAL: Selected IOVA mode 'PA'
EAL: 2048 hugepages of size 2097152 reserved, but no mounted hugetlbfs 
found for that size
TELEMETRY: No legacy callbacks, legacy socket not created


cat /proc/meminfo | grep Huge
AnonHugePages:     10240 kB
ShmemHugePages:        0 kB
FileHugePages:         0 kB
HugePages_Total:       4
HugePages_Free:        3
HugePages_Rsvd:        0
HugePages_Surp:        0
Hugepagesize:    1048576 kB
Hugetlb:         8388608 kB

One huge page looks like have been used.
ls -l /mnt/huge/
total 1048576
1073741824 rtemap_0

So yes one has been created, but 2048 hugepages of size 2097152 
reserved, but no mounted hugetlbfs found for that size, happens.

So to try to understand what happens I reset 
hugepages-2048kB/nr_hugepages to 0 :
bash -c 'echo 0 > 
/sys/devices/system/node/node0/hugepages/hugepages-2048kB/nr_hugepages' && \
bash -c 'echo 0 > 
/sys/devices/system/node/node1/hugepages/hugepages-2048kB/nr_hugepages' && \
bash -c 'echo 0 > /sys/kernel/mm/hugepages/hugepages-2048kB/nr_hugepages'

but : dpdk-testpmd -l 0-3 -n 4 -- -i --nb-cores=2EAL: Detected 48 lcore(s)
EAL: Detected 2 NUMA nodes
EAL: Detected static linkage of DPDK
EAL: Multi-process socket /var/run/dpdk/rte/mp_socket
EAL: Selected IOVA mode 'PA'
EAL: No available hugepages reported in hugepages-2048kB
EAL: Probing VFIO support...
testpmd: No probed ethernet devices
Interactive-mode selected
testpmd: create a new mbuf pool <mb_pool_0>: n=171456, size=2176, socket=0
testpmd: preferred mempool ops selected: ring_mp_mc
Done

So here on this part I really don't understand, my /proc/meminfo tells 
me I need to use the 1048576kB part but dpdk-testpmd the 2048kB.

Then I searched an alternative to these commands in your documentation 
and found : dpdk-hugpages.py


3 Step alternative

https://doc.dpdk.org/guides-20.11/tools/hugepages.html
(There is an error on the documentation : dpdk-hugpages instead of 
dpdk-hugepages)

So I reset every files, and removed my mount and my folder.

umount /mnt/huge
rm -rf /mnt/huge
bash -c 'echo 0 > 
/sys/devices/system/node/node0/hugepages/hugepages-1048576kB/nr_hugepages'
bash -c 'echo 0 > 
/sys/devices/system/node/node1/hugepages/hugepages-1048576kB/nr_hugepages'
bash -c 'echo 0 > /sys/kernel/mm/hugepages/hugepages-1048576kB/nr_hugepages'

cat /proc/meminfo | grep Huge
AnonHugePages:     10240 kB
ShmemHugePages:        0 kB
FileHugePages:         0 kB
HugePages_Total:       0
HugePages_Free:        0
HugePages_Rsvd:        0
HugePages_Surp:        0
Hugepagesize:    1048576 kB
Hugetlb:               0 kB


dpdk-hugpages.py -s

Node Pages Size Total

Hugepages not mounted


So here I have an cleaned hugepage environment.
Then I tried to reallocate hugepages with the python script: 
dpdk-hugepages.py -p 1G --setup 4G

dpdk-hugepages.py -s
Node Pages Size Total
0    4     1Gb    4Gb
1    4     1Gb    4G


So I got my 4 pages of 1GB and retried the previous steps :

cat /proc/meminfo | grep Huge
AnonHugePages:     10240 kB
ShmemHugePages:        0 kB
FileHugePages:         0 kB
HugePages_Total:       8
HugePages_Free:        8
HugePages_Rsvd:        0
HugePages_Surp:        0
Hugepagesize:    1048576 kB
Hugetlb:         8388608 kB

Here it says I got 8 hugepages of 1GB so I don't understand why, because 
the python script tells the opposite.

dpdk-testpmd -l 0-3 -n 4 -- -i --nb-cores=2EAL: Detected 48 lcore(s)
EAL: Detected 2 NUMA nodes
EAL: Detected static linkage of DPDK
EAL: Multi-process socket /var/run/dpdk/rte/mp_socket
EAL: Selected IOVA mode 'PA'
EAL: No available hugepages reported in hugepages-2048kB
EAL: Probing VFIO support...
testpmd: No probed ethernet devices
Interactive-mode selected
testpmd: create a new mbuf pool <mb_pool_0>: n=171456, size=2176, socket=0
testpmd: preferred mempool ops selected: ring_mp_mc
Done

Same for the helloworld.

Then I cleared my environment:

dpdk-hugepages.py -u && dpdk-hugepages.py -c && dpdk-hugepages.py -s
Node Pages Size Total

Hugepages not mounted


Then as the error says that there are no available hugepages reported in 
hugepages-2048kB i tried with Mb :
dpdk-hugepages.py -p 1024M --setup 4G && dpdk-hugepages.py -s
Node Pages Size Total
0    4     1Gb    4Gb
1    4     1Gb    4Gb

But same error happened.


4 Question

So I don't succeed to resolve this issue of testing the DPDK with 
helloworld and dpdk-testpmd.

Have I missed something in the creation of the hugepages ?

Could you please, provide help ?

Best,
