2022-02-11Fix issues when handling unkown ipv6 packetsLuc Provoost5-14/+23
In order to fix this, a new parameter has been introduced: "ipv6 mask length". This can be specified in the port section of the config file. The default value is 8 (bytes). Signed-off-by: Luc Provoost <> Change-Id: I88b0b3906cc247ae5653ad59b8aa425f0cddf347

2022-01-03Add support for detection of misordered packets per flowXavier Simonart4-23/+263
Only flows from ranges are supported so far. This means that flows generated through randoms are not supported yet. Misordered packets can now be detected per flow. flow definition is hard-coded as 5 tuple (proto, ip/udp src/dst). The generator writes flow_id and packet_id within the packets (4 + 5 bytes). This means that, if all latency, packet_id, signature, accuracy, flow_id and packet_id_in_flow parameters are set, the minimum packet size is 72 bytes. This feature is enabled through the following parameters: On the gen side: - packet id in flow pos: position (5 bytes) for packet id - flow id pos: flow id pos (4 bytes) On the lat side - flow_count: the number of flows received by the latency core. If not enough flows are configured, then an error message is displayed (once) and packet_reordering count is only measured for those flows - packet id in flow pos: position (5 bytes) for packet id - flow id pos: flow id pos (4 bytes) Misordered packets (and extent) are reported per core as before. No change related to duplicate packets (not measured per flow as a duplicate packet is not per flow...). Signed-off-by: Xavier Simonart <> Change-Id: I07517df87dfebec81408baf1decb647d9a0edd94

2021-12-30Increase maximum latency supported by Early Loss DetectionXavier Simonart4-3/+39
Early Loss Detection was supporting a maximum latency of 16k packets i.e. 1ms at 64 Bytes / 10Gbps. This has been increased by 64. Drawback is that early loss detection might take much longer (1 million packets) Signed-off-by: Xavier Simonart <> Change-Id: I3e8dae6a27e72e48757a66e0097d17be924211ad
2021-12-20Add support for preventing rapid to change flowsXavier Simonart2-5/+8
By default, in flowsize and warmup tests, rapid will set the flows by changing some fields. However, rapid only support some types of flows. Using this patch, one can let PROX define the flows, and prevent rapid to do it. This is done by specifying number of flows to 0 in rapid configuration.

2021-09-13Use updated DPDK scheduling schema in ProxHeinrich Kuhn3-0/+54
The scheduling infrastructure in DPDK has changed somewhat in DPDK 20.11 and up. This patch adds the needed compatibly code to make use of the new layout in DPDK. The bulk of the changes revolve around moving tb/tc rates and period fields from rte_sched_subport_params to a new struct called rte_sched_subport_profile_params Signed-off-by: Heinrich Kuhn <> Signed-off-by: Simon Horman <> Change-Id: Ie365903b972528eaa9324c707fe3868610f51993

The udata64 field in the rte_mbuf struct has been removed to make more space for the dynfield1 array. Prox used the udata64 field for various use cases.

2021-09-11Basic support for ranges in generatorXavier Simonart3-1/+70
This commit add initial support for ranges. Ranges can now be specified using an offset and a range, in a similar way as random. e.g.: range=2-16001 range_offset=28 The two previous lines will range the src IP address from x.x.0.2 to x.x.3e.81 in an IPv4 packet. The range option will write as many bytes as the bytes needed for the max (2 bytes in the example above), up to 4 bytes. Runtime, the generator will iterate through the range in a linear way, starting from the min. No check are done whether range overlap themselves or whether they overlap with randoms. As of now, no support for command line or script option. Signed-off-by: Xavier Simonart <> Change-Id: I98a1757998955f48631a5929bd7534481975eedc
2021-09-11swap: prevent printing continuous warning messages for STP and LLDPXavier Simonart1-0/+24

2021-09-09Add support for building Prox with MesonHeinrich Kuhn6-6/+257
DPDK has deprecated the use of the make system in versions 20.11 and beyond. Following the deprecation it is non-trivial to keep using make to build projects that depend on DPDK. A cleaner solution is to adopt Meson as a building framework. This commit adds support for Meson in Prox. The file mirrors the functionality that is available in the current Makefile. The make build system will exit if it detects that DPDK was built using meson (testing for the RTE_TARGET directory) Signed-off-by: Heinrich Kuhn <> Signed-off-by: Simon Horman <> Change-Id: I6ebffa2199993fd6eb46c2f31961fe7dc38e727c

The bucket data of the last latency core was taken into account when collecting the latency stats. We are now adding the bucket data for all cores.

A new test was added: tests/basicrapid_gw.test. Traffic generated will now go to the reflector (swap instance) via the Gateway. The swap instance will also send the traffic back via the gateway. This use case is created to support GCP testing where the interfaces are defined with a /32 netmask, and hence all traffic is routed via the gateway.

2021-04-30Do not run by defaultLuc Provoost1-10/+12
In the definition of the stack in openstack-rapid.yaml, we define a CloudConfig resource. is called automatically by a service (check-prox-system-setup.service), after each boot. In this file, defined in the CloudConfig resource, you can put instructions needed for succesful operation and to fix certain issues in your environment. By default, this file should NOT be executed, hence we should not have this in the CloudConfig. Change the name back to if you need to execute this code.

2021-04-28Default use of rapid_rsa_keyLuc Provoost6-23/+35
A secret and public key pair is available in the rapid directory: rapid_rsa_key and is now modified to upload this key into OpenStack if the keypair does not already exist in OpenStack. Which keypair to use is now only defined in params_rapid.yaml. You can still define a key pair with a different name in params_rapid.yaml. If the secret and public key files are not available, a new keypair will be created and the secret key file will be saved. The name of the secret key file is the name as the OpenStack keypair name. The name of the public file is the same, with the pub extension. Change-Id: Ib8b5e4bf3a3d3138216698dc588a6908248220c0 Signed-off-by: Luc Provoost <>

2021-04-08cgnat test case addedLuc Provoost6-20/+346
A cgnat test can now be executed. This test needs 3 PROX instances. The first one, the generator needs to have an interface on the private dataplane network. The second instance, the cgnat needs to have it's first dataplane interface on the private network, while the second data plane needs to be on the public network. The third instance will be playing the role of internet server that the generator is connecting to. It will have one dataplane interface on the public network. This third instance will increase the packet size of the received packets by padding it with zeros and it will send the packets back to the cgnat mutliple times. How many times is defined by a multiplier in the cgnat.cfg file. In that cgnat file, we also define a range of IP addresses that will be used for the dynamic source IP NAT-ing. Make sure that the ports are allowed to accept other IP addresses than their own (e.g. allowed address pairs) and that the range of IP addresses is not overlapping with other machines in the public network.

When scripts are doing an ssh or scp to the PROX instances, errors were sometimes hidden. E.g. when we try to upload a config file to the PROX instance that is already existing but owned by another user, we would not see the error on the screen. Note this will only happen if you build your own image. In case you use the pre-canned PROX images, this should not cause issues.
