41.2. Prerequisites

To test Cryptodev performance, an application test_crypto_perf is added into DPDK.

The test commands of test_crypto_perf is below:

./build/app/dpdk-test-crypto-perf -c COREMASK --vdev (AESNI_MB|QAT|AESNI_GCM|OPENSSL|SNOW3G|KASUMI|ZUC|NULL) -w (PCI:DEVICE:FUNCTION) -w (PCI:DEVICE:FUNCTION) -- --ptest (throughput|latency) --devtype (crypto_aesni_mb|crypto_qat|crypto_aes_gcm|crypto_openssl|crypto_snow3g|crypto_kasumi|crypto_zuc|crypto_null) --optype (aead|cipher-only|auth-only|cipher-then-auth|auth-then-cipher)  --cipher-algo (ALGO) --cipher-op (encrypt|decrypt) --cipher-key-sz (key_size) --cipher-iv-sz (iv_size) --auth-algo (ALGO) --auth-op (generate|verify) --auth-key-sz (key_size) --auth-aad-sz (aad_size) --auth-digest-sz (digest_size) --total-ops (ops_number) --burst-sz (burst_size) --buffer-sz (buffer_size)

Common:

--vdev (AESNI_MB|QAT|AESNI_GCM|OPENSSL|SNOW3G|KASUMI|ZUC|NULL) this value can be set as : crypto_aesni_mb_pmd, crypto_aes_gcm_pmd, crypto_openssl_pmd, crypto_snow3g_pmd, crypto_kasumi_pmd, crypto_zuc_pmd or  crypto_null_pmd. If pmd is QAT this parameter should not be set.

 -w (PCI:DEVICE:FUNCTION) whitelist, specify the network interfaces or/and QAT devices that will be used by test application.

 --optype (aead|cipher-only|auth-only|cipher-then-auth|auth-then-cipher): if cipher-algo is aes-gcm or gmac this value must be set to aead. Otherwise, it will be set to others. Notice, null algorithm only support cipher-only test.

 --ptest (throughput/latency/verify) set test type.

Other parameters please reference above table’s parameter.
