Subject[PATCH net-next V2 00/11] vhost_net TX batching
Date
Hi all:

This series tries to batch submitting packets to underlayer socket
through msg_control during sendmsg(). This is done by:

1) Doing userspace copy inside vhost_net
2) Build XDP buff
3) Batch at most 64 (VHOST_NET_BATCH) XDP buffs and submit them once
through msg_control during sendmsg().
4) Underlayer sockets can use XDP buffs directly when XDP is enalbed,
or build skb based on XDP buff.

For the packet that can not be built easily with XDP or for the case
that batch submission is hard (e.g sndbuf is limited). We will go for
the previous slow path, passing iov iterator to underlayer socket
through sendmsg() once per packet.

This can help to improve cache utilization and avoid lots of indirect
calls with sendmsg(). It can also co-operate with the batching support
of the underlayer sockets (e.g the case of XDP redirection through
maps).

Testpmd(txonly) in guest shows obvious improvements:

Test /+pps%
XDP_DROP on TAP /+44.8%
XDP_REDIRECT on TAP /+29%
macvtap (skb) /+26%

Netperf TCP_STREAM TX from guest shows obvious improvements on small
packet:

Please review.

Thanks

Changes from V1:

- don't hold page refcnt for XDP_DROP
- release page if build_skb() fails
- introduce a helper to build skb for the path of no batching mode
- rename tun_do_xdp() as tun_xdp_act() and use negative for reporting
errors instead of a pointer to integer
- introduce a num field in tun_msg_ctl
- introduce a new structure for storing metadata in the head of XDP
packet
- do not store batche XDP inside vhoet_net_virtqueue

Jason Wang (11):
net: sock: introduce SOCK_XDP
tuntap: switch to use XDP_PACKET_HEADROOM
tuntap: enable bh early during processing XDP
tuntap: simplify error handling in tun_build_skb()
tuntap: tweak on the path of skb XDP case in tun_build_skb()
tuntap: split out XDP logic
tuntap: move XDP flushing out of tun_do_xdp()
tun: switch to new type of msg_control
tuntap: accept an array of XDP buffs through sendmsg()
tap: accept an array of XDP buffs through sendmsg()
vhost_net: batch submitting XDP buffers to underlayer sockets
