2020-01-29PROX: print panic message on screenXavier Simonart4-0/+11
When PROX detects an error condition at startup, it calls PROX_PANIC which prints an message before calling rte_panic to end the application. If ncurses was already started, this results in the message being printed in ncurses (and prox.log) then leaving ncurses; hence the message is usually not visible to the user (until it open prox.log), giving the impression of an unexpected crash. With this fix, the error message is repeated after closing ncurses, hence the message will be printed on stdout. Note that it might also be printed twice on stdout if ncurses was not already started. As part of this fix, prox.log is now properly closed. Change-Id: If41875843f1a39bc715f4264b3992c3fa018394e Signed-off-by: Xavier Simonart <xavier.simonart@intel.com>
2020-01-29Added command lat all statsXavier Simonart3-154/+161
lat all stats <core_id> <task_id> combines "lat stats" and "lat packets" within one command. This command returns: - One line in case the core_task parser fails. In that case the line will start with: "error: invalid syntax" - One set of lines for each core task: - if core/task is invalid, or not running lat mode, the line will contain (start with) "error...". this will be the only line for that core/task. - Otherwise the set of lines will be: - One line as returned by "lat stats". This line will be - One line starting with "error" in case of error, or - One line containing lat_min_usec, lat_max_usec, lat_avg_usec, tot_lat_min_usec, tot_lat_max_usec, last_tsc, rte_get_tsc_hz(), lcore_id, task_id - The return from lat packets i.e. - One line starting with "error" in case of error, or - 128 lines - one for each bucket - as returned by "lat packets" command This command is more useful then lat packets, as it contains the tsc - needed to see whether the sample is new or not.

2020-01-29Add Latency Distribution displayXavier Simonart10-18/+278
- Latency Distribution (i.e. histograms) has been added when latency is enabled. - Histograms are now compiled by default. - A bug has also been fixed, which was causing strange behavior in the histograms (due to bucket size being overwritten). - The default bucket size has been changed to "11" which means that the size of each bucket is now (1 cycle << 11) = 2048 cycles = 1 microsecond at 2GHz. It was (1 << (10 - 1)). As there are 128 latency buckets, it is not possible to show all of them on the display. Hence the latency buckets are displayed based on on the assumption that the minimum latency is usually relatively stable and that the maximum latency change more often. - The first empty buckets are not shown (i.e. buckets empty for all tasks) - If more than 15 buckets are non empty, then the buckets are combined, so that a maximum of 15 (bigger) buckets are shown - If less than 15 buckets are non empty, the following (empty) buckets are shown (this avoid seeing every x seconds some columns being added and removed).

2020-01-29Prepare for DPDK 19.08 supportXavier Simonart63-571/+609
This commit prepares PROX for supporting changes from DPDK 19.08 Mainly, the "sed" listed below were run. In addition, - some forward definition have been removed, - prox_compat.h has been updated - prox_compat.h has been included where necessary.

2020-01-27Code review feedback & back-ground traffic supportLuc Provoost1-117/+162
Various code review comments taken into account. We also support now background traffic, meaning the scripts will start a test between machines and monitor packet loss, latency, etc., but at the same time, the script will also start traffic on background machines. That traffic will not be monitored. Each generator will generate the same ammoung of traffic. Change-Id: I5cd495be230a526f91de965f3d4dd0581681f5ca Signed-off-by: Luc Provoost <luc.provoost@intel.com>

2020-01-17Specify latency bucket size & correct calculationLuc Provoost4-20/+61
A new parameter bucket_size_exp in the *.test file specifies the bucket size for latency measurement. The default is 11 which corresponds to a bucket size of 1 usec for a 2GHz processor. This fix is also calculating the bucket size based on the reported frequency. Before it was assuming a 2GHz processor.

We are now reporting a percentile number for the round-trip latency. The numbers are only correct for processors running at 2GHz. Will fix this next so it runs for any freqency.

Removed the remaining UUIDs from the centos.json file, making it easier to reuse this file. This does require a recent version of the packer tool. Updated the README accordingly and also added the --env option in the packer alias, so that the OS_CLOUD variable is set when running packer in the container.

2019-12-02Fix mempool size for swap.cfgLuc Provoost2-2/+2
Fixing an error re-introduced in the swap.cfg file. The mempool size needs to be bigger than the number of rx and tx descriptors (we need some extra buffers in the mempool for other things than rx and tx descriptors). The default number of tx and rx descriptors has been changed in PROX to 2K. This initially went through the testing since this is just giving a warning in the prox.log file for some PMDs. For other PMDs, PROX will not start. Also fixed an inconsistency in rapid.vms: name of the security group.

2019-11-26rapid november release combining changesLuc Provoost23-316/+473
-Renamed monitorswap.test into corestats.test. This is a more generic test case that can monitor the core statistics of all PROX instances -New portstats.test which can monitor the port statistics of all PROX instances -Removed the tasks parameter in the [DEFAULT] section of the *.test files. Runrapid.py is now scaning the PROX configuration files to automatically detect the PROX tasks that are being used. -There is now an option to add the PushGateway parameter in the [Default] section of some *.test files. This will push the measurements to the Gateway, so they can be used by tools like Grafana. The logging of the data in a csv file has also been improved. Results can now be found on the screen, in the RUN*.log files, in the *.csv files and are being pushed to the PushGateway. -In the *.test files, replaced the swapcores, irqcores and impaircores by the cores parameter since they are not treated differently by the code. For a generator, we are still using the gencores and latcores parameters since we need to treat them differently in runrapid.py -devbind.sh is removed from the repository since this file is now created by runrapid.py -renamed the rapidVMs.vms file into rapid.vms -image is now built without ssh access for root. Only using centos user. runrapid.py is now using centos user for ssh sessions. PROX tools are strted using sudo -using new DPDK, mb_lib and PROX versions as defined in deploycentostools.sh -installing missing yum-utils package in image -added flowsize parameter to the impairtest -added list of flowsizes to the fixed_rate testing (l3framerate.test) -the irqtest can now loop through multiple Test Machines in stead of only checking the irq of one. Note that we should have the same cores parameter for all Test machines -changes in prox_ctrl.py to support setting the speed of a generator on a combination of mulitple cores and tasks. Also added the multi_port_stats function to support the new portstats.test -Updated version to 19.11.21 -Fixed some power of 2 in the flow table Change-Id: Ia14543bf3195a2b1bd4184b455da6940f1777fc9 Signed-off-by: Luc Provoost <luc.provoost@intel.com>

2019-10-13Increase the default number of rx and tx descriptors to 2KXavier Simonart12-17/+38
A high number of RX descriptor can be helpful in avoiding packet loss due to the core being interrupted. This commit increases the default number of descriptors from 256 to 2K. Those values are checked versus the minimum and maximum supported by the pmd. Number of mbufs (mempool size) have been updated n config files to support this default number of dsescriptors. The number of descriptors can still be overwritten by the config file. However those values must always remain within the limits reported by the pmd.

2019-10-11Fix generation through pcap fileXavier Simonart4-25/+26
- When using "pcap file" argument in PROX config file in the gen mode (and no submode), packets were truncated to 8 bytes (and a warning printed) This has been fixed. - "Set value" command was checking whether offset was within first 1518 bytes unrespective to the mtu (e.g. jumbo packets). This has been fixed. - There was a limit of 64K packets loaded from a pcap file (which could be overwritten through PROX config). This limit has been removed - by default all packets from pcap are loaded - When pcap was loaded, memory was allocated to store the packet. However just enough memory was allocated, so that there was no way to change (increase) packet size through command line after that. Now memory is allocated to store up to mtu size - While "set value" command was acting on all packets, "pkt size" command was only changing the first packet. This has now been changed and both commands change all the packets. - A few other minor cleanups.

2019-10-11Fix port throughput related statistics for i40e virtual functionsXavier Simonart1-3/+3
When CRC stripping is enabled (default PROX behavior), the number of rx bytes received by the NIC returned by DPDK usually does not take the CRC 4 bytes into account. However, for i40e virtual functions those 4 bytes are counted as part of the received bytes. This resulted in both DPDK and PROX taking those 4 bytes into account causing the RX % to be above 100%.

2019-10-08Fix setting mac address through [port] sectionXavier Simonart1-0/+3
MAC address can be configured through the [port] section. However this had only some effect on packets being transmitted. For instance it was used to set the src mac address by the generator. It had no effect on packets reception: when not in promiscuous mode only the packets with the MAC originally set by the HW were received. Now, when not in promiscuous mode, only packets with MAC as defined in [port] section will be received.

2019-09-04Add heartbeat support (stop all cores in case of TCP socket issues)Xavier Simonart5-0/+37
"heartbeat timeout" (in second) can be specified as a global parameter in PROX config file. If set, a timer is started when the first command is received from the TCP socket. This timer is reset at each commands received through the TCP socket. If the timer expires, then - all cores are stopped - the TCP socket is closed, causing an error at client side. This feature helps in case a script starts PROX and the traffic generated through PROX causes issues to the control plane.

2019-08-28Add warning in case of wrong configuration (missing l3 submode)Xavier Simonart1-0/+2
Add warning if gateway_ip is configured and l3 is not configured. If l3 sub mode is not configured, then gateway_ip parameter is ignored (an error is not returned to make it easy to switch from an l3 sub mode to default submode).

2019-08-05Fix reset valueXavier Simonart1-4/+11
In addition to resetting all values set by the user, reset value was also resetting internal configuration. It resulted that the src mac address in the outgoing packet was set to whatever was specified in pkt inline, which is wrong (by default src mac address should be set the the port mac address). Note that reset value reset any "set values" but does not reset the packet size. Change-Id: I9d1cd92be9f5814bd7b104932dd6ffe5df3b6edd Signed-off-by: Xavier Simonart <xavier.simonart@intel.com>

2019-07-04Fix keyboard related issues on Ubuntu 18.04Xavier Simonart2-1/+34
On Ubuntu 18.04, the keyboard was not properly handled in PROX For instance, many keys pressed were silently discarded. The issue is related to a change in histedit/libedit version. Recent libedit have (silently) changed the prototype of the get_char function passed in el_set(el, EL_GETCFN, get_char), with some input parameters changing from char to wchar_t. As PROX used the old prototype (char based), this resulted in some uninitialized field (= garbage) in the wchar_t, causing libedit to discard the character. PROX now uses different get_char prototypes, depending of the libedit version being used. If PROX was already compiled and a the OS is updated (e.g. from Ubuntu 16.04 to Ubuntu 18.04), this will require a 'make clean'.

2019-07-01Cosmetic change when printing warningsProvoost1-1/+3
Warnings can be printed in the following cases: - When not enough packets are taken into account for measuring packet latency accuracy. - When there us a potential network throughput issue, meaning the generator is generating more packets than the the NIC can handle - When the generator cannot generate the requested load If there are no warnings for a certain measurement, nothing gets printed, suppressing an empty line Change-Id: Iee07c12142e28dcc0ac406bfed7626731ab08f98 Signed-off-by: Luc Provoost <luc.provoost@intel.com>
