7 daysPreparation for packet mis-ordering statsHEADmasterLuc Provoost6-24/+34
Changed PROX and the python scripts so that the "lat all stats" command also returns the mis_ordered, extent and duplicate statistics. In order to make this work properly, we need now to also stop and restart the latency cores, every time we stop and start the generator cores, since the sequence numbers are reinitialised every time we start the generator core.

2021-02-10Expand mirror functionalityLuc Provoost3-24/+67
In order to deal with non-symmetrical load, the mirror function can now change the packet size of each packet it receives. It can also send the incoming packet multiple times on each of the tx ports. To support this feature, 2 new parameters in the cfg file have been added for the mirror mode: - multiplier: specifies how many times a packet needs to be sent on each tx port. Default is 1. - mirror_size: the size of the packets that need to be sent. This will just change (increase) the packet size of each incoming packet. If not specified or invalid value (e.g. <64), the size will not be changed. The packet size will only be changed for IPv4 UDP and IPv4 TCP. Note that these parameters have no effect on the mirror copy submode. Change-Id: Ic46b52abdd80ed51cffee667bd04ade9ec23ff6d Signed-off-by: Luc Provoost <>

2021-01-27creation of tests and configs subdirectoriesLuc Provoost40-58/+136
All test files are now in the tests directory. All PROX config files moved to the configs directory. When specifying a test on the command line, you should now also mention the directory: e.g. --test tests/basicrapid.test In these test files, you need now to also include the configs subdirectory when specifying the prox configuration that needs to be used. The --map parameter has also changed. It can still take the file name of the map file, that specifies which PROX instance to use during a test. On top of that, you can now also specify a list of indices of the machines to be used during a test: e.g. --map [1,3].

Sending now a 'quit' command to PROX, so that the thread running PROX in an ssh session is now cleaned up correctly. Also fixed a problem with the logging when running the code more than once. We only create handlers now, when they do not yet exist. Updated the rapid version. Also added some more tests in the testcases.yaml for xtesting. At the end of a run, the PROX.log files are copied in the results directory. The success criterium for a test 'pass_threshold' has been removed from the test files and is to be controlled by the xtesting testcases.yaml file.

2020-11-13Fix for latency reporting and log file handlerLuc Provoost3-5/+5
The latency histogram dat did not contain samples collected during the first measurement of each step. The maximum latency did take the first step into account. As a result, you might see a test run with a maximum latency not showing up in the latency histogram data. This has been fixed by also including the data from the first measurement in the histogram data. In some cases, we also reported the wrong speed from the last unsuccessful step. This is now fixed and we do report the speed from the last successful step. In, a fix was added to execute the rollover on the file handler of the log file in all cases. In some cases, the file handler with index 0 was not the file handler of the log file. Change-Id: I6c2b16c21dd0ee17d1d14e46c4c544e185324256 Signed-off-by: Luc Provoost <>

2020-10-19Support dataplane subnet mask & latency histogramLuc Provoost16-36/+76
There is a new parameter in the config_file: dataplane_subnet_mask. This parameter is added to the dataplane IP addresses and is needed by the Linux stack to deal with some protocols (e.g. ARP). If not present, the default value of 24 will be used. In the end, this will make sure that IP addresses in the rapid.env file will have this mask, e.g. /24 If you use other tools than to create the rapid.env file, make sure to add the mask. This commit also introduces a change when exiting: we only copy the prox.log files from the different prox instances in case we expect a new prox.log file to be created in these instances. When using a valid format.yaml file, the tool will now also send the latency distribution data (histogram) to the URL. The tool is now also checking the value of bucket_size_exp: it needs to be 11 or more. Change-Id: I633cdc64ef687fdb6625be1e7482a5a371f83e93 Signed-off-by: Luc Provoost <>
2020-10-16Report failure when tap port is not mapped to real dpdk port.Xavier Simonart4-6/+20
When using "vdev=" in port section, a tap device and an additional dpdk port are created. In most cases, we still want to use a real DPDK device (i.e. bound to an interface such as virtio or a PF or a VF). PROX will now report by default an error when the used [port] is not a DPDK bound device. An additional parameter "virtual=yes" can be added in the port section in case one want to disable this error checking (e.g. specify additional parameter for the vdev device). This patch also fixes a potential endianess issue when configuring IP addresses. Change-Id: Iffdd9552308be3b77cfe2067630647acac2c01fe Signed-off-by: Xavier Simonart <>
2020-09-29New PROX version, background traffic reportingLuc Provoost18-86/+89 is now installing a recent PROX version. When using background traffic, the tool is also reporting the total traffic that was handled by the NFVi stack, including foreground & background traffic. The use of the prox_socket and prox_launch_exit was also broken in a previous release and is now fixed. When setting prox_socket to false for a PROX instance, we will not create a socket connection to control that PROX instance. Setting this option to false is not meaningful for the generator PROX instances since we would not be able to control the behavior of the PROX generator during the test. You could use the generator against another non-PROX instance and then set prox_socket to false for that non-PROX instance. Default is true. prox_launch_exit is used to start and stop the PROX program inside the instance. Default is true. This is useful in case you want to start PROX manually to be able to inspect the PROX UI, but at the same time, let the rapid scripts control the testing.

Multiple (different) local_ipv4/prefix must then also be configured within the same section. Note that for ipv6 multiple vlans are not supported (yet) Also, when vdev is not enabled, multiple vlans are also not (yet) supported.

2020-09-21Added support for reporting packet (mis)order.Xavier Simonart18-48/+227
The "Latency" screen has been updated with 3 columns: - mis-ordered Count the number of mis-ordered packets. - extent: Gives an indication of how mis-ordered the packets are. Receiving packet "x - 5" after receiving packet "x" will cause an extent of 5. - duplicate: Count number of duplicate packets. Following commands have been added for the impair mode: - proba no drop: replaces the former "probability" command. Percentage of forwarded packets. So 99.5 means 0.5% of packet drop. - proba delay Percentage of delayed packets for the impair mode. - proba duplicate Percentage of duplicate packets. Similar parameters are supported within the config files: - proba no drop - proba delay - proba duplicate Note: it is recommanded to use the signature when measuring packet misorder, as otherwise unexpected packet would cause miscounts.

2020-09-16ramp generator traffic & prox.log copyLuc Provoost6-1/+75
A new parameter can be put in the *.test files so that the requested traffic is not generated at once, but slowly increasing up to the requested traffic. This is important for some SW switched that adapt and learn from the applied traffic. When suddenly applying a high traffic, the switch might not have enough time to learn and lose packets. Only after a period of time (up to 10 seconds?), the switch can cope with the traffic without packet loss. In order to get reproducible results in this case with low packet loss, please put the parameter ramp_step in the test section of the *.test file. The step is expressed in percentage of a 10Gb/s traffic. If the parameter is not present, the load will be immediately applied. When the script is now finished, it also copies the prox.log files from all the prox instances. In case of issues, please investigate this log file. When using background traffic, the tool will also print the average background traffic for each step in the DEBUG log. In this way, you can check that the background traffic is actually dealing with the same amount of traffic as the foreground. The tool is printing the packet reception rate of the background generators. A bug was also fixed regarding the latency percentile reporting. When using tests involving l2gen.cfg, the values of the percentile latency were wrong.

When the rx port variable of a task is listing a port name, all rx queues will be used when the all_rx_queues is set for that port. If not set, only one queue of that port will be "consumed", each time the port is referenced in the rx port variable. When the all_rx_queues is set for a port, you should NOT reference that port more than once in the rx port variables.

UDP and IP packet length and source UDP port and destination UDP port were wrongly set for IPv6 packets. In the *.test files, there is now an optional boolean field (ipv6) in the [TestParameters] section. When set to true, the generator will use the IPv6 packet layout to place the right values at the proper offset in the packet. If not present or set to false, the IPv4 layout will be used. Note also that packet size needs to be at least 84 bytes for IPV6 traffic since we need space for latency and other information in each packet.
