194. Cryptodev virtio Performance Application Tests

194.1. Description

This document provides the test plan for testing Cryptodev virtio performance by crypto perf application. The crypto perf application is a DPDK app under DPDK app folder.

Cryptodev virtio performance supports AESNI MB PMD, VIRTIO PMD

AESNI MB PMD algorithm table The table below contains AESNI MB algorithms which supported in crypto virtio perf. Part of the algorithms are not supported currently.

194.2. Prerequisites

qemu version >= 2.12 in qemu enable vhost-user-crypto:

./configure --target-list=x86_64-softmmu --enable-vhost-crypto --prefix=/root/qemu-2.12 && make && make install

the bin is in /root/qemu-2.12 folder, which is your specified

194.3. Test case setup:

VM
HOST

In Host:

# Enable config item in dpdk:

enable CONFIG_RTE_LIBRTE_VHOST in config/common_base

# Build DPDK and app vhost_crypto

# Run the dpdk vhost sample:

./examples/vhost_crypto/build/vhost-crypto --socket-mem 2048,0 --legacy-mem --vdev crypto_aesni_mb_pmd_1 -l 8,9,10 -n 4  -- --config "(9,0,0),(10,0,0)" --socket-file 9,/tmp/vm0_crypto0.sock --socket-file=10,/tmp/vm0_crypto1.sock

# bind vf or pf with driver vfio-pci:

usertools/dpdk-devbind.py --bind=vfio-pci 0000:60:00.0 0000:60:00.1

# Start VM by the qemu:

taskset -c 11,12,13,14 /root/qemu-2/bin/qemu-system-x86_64  -name vm0
    -enable-kvm -pidfile /tmp/.vm0.pid
    -cpu host -smp 4
    -m 5120 -object memory-backend-file,id=mem,size=5120M,mem-path=/mnt/huge,share=on -numa node,memdev=mem -mem-prealloc
    -net nic,vlan=0,macaddr=00:00:00:18:38:11,model=e1000,addr=1f -net user,vlan=0,hostfwd=tcp:10.67.111.126:6000-:22
    -chardev socket,path=/tmp/vm0_qga0.sock,server,nowait,id=vm0_qga0
    -device virtio-serial
    -device virtserialport,chardev=vm0_qga0,name=org.qemu.guest_agent.0
    -daemonize -monitor unix:/tmp/vm0_monitor.sock,server,nowait
    -vnc :1
    -chardev socket,path=/tmp/vm0_crypto0.sock,id=vm0_crypto0 -object cryptodev-vhost-user,id=cryptodev0,chardev=vm0_crypto0 -device virtio-crypto-pci,id=crypto0,cryptodev=cryptodev0
    -chardev socket,path=/tmp/vm0_crypto1.sock,id=vm0_crypto1 -object cryptodev-vhost-user,id=cryptodev1,chardev=vm0_crypto1 -device virtio-crypto-pci,id=crypto1,cryptodev=cryptodev1
    -drive file=/root/VMs/virtio_crypto_test_710_1.img
    -device vfio-pci,host=0000:60:00.0,id=pt_0
    -device vfio-pci,host=0000:60:00.1,id=pt_1

In VM:

# enable config items in dpdk and compile dpdk:

enable CONFIG_RTE_EAL_IGB_UIO in config/common_base enable CONFIG_RTE_LIBRTE_PMD_AESNI_MB in config/common_base

# set virtio device:

modprobe uio_pci_generic
echo -n 0000:00:04.0 > /sys/bus/pci/drivers/virtio-pci/unbind
echo -n 0000:00:05.0 > /sys/bus/pci/drivers/virtio-pci/unbind
echo "1af4 1054" > /sys/bus/pci/drivers/uio_pci_generic/new_id
