Subject[PATCH 4.11 15/84] net/mlx5e: Added BW check for DIM decision mechanism
Date
4.11-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

------------------

From: Tal Gilboa <talgi@mellanox.com>


[ Upstream commit c3164d2fc48fd4fa0477ab658b644559c3fe9073 ]

DIM (Dynamically-tuned Interrupt Moderation) is a mechanism designed for
changing the channel interrupt moderation values in order to reduce CPU
overhead for all traffic types.
Until now only interrupt and packet rate were sampled.
We found a scenario on which we get a false indication since a change in
DIM caused more aggregation and reduced packet rate while increasing BW.

We now regard a change as succesfull iff:
current_BW > (prev_BW + threshold) or
current_BW ~= prev_BW and current_PR > (prev_PR + threshold) or
current_BW ~= prev_BW and current_PR ~= prev_PR and
current_IR < (prev_IR - threshold)
Where BW = Bandwidth, PR = Packet rate and IR = Interrupt rate

Improvements (ConnectX-4Lx 25GbE, single RX queue, LRO off)
--------------------------------------------------
packet size | before[Mb/s] | after[Mb/s] | gain |
2B | 343.4 | 359.4 | 4.5% |
16B | 2739.7 | 2814.8 | 2.7% |
64B | 9739 | 10185.3 | 4.5% |
