143. vm2vm vhost-user/virtio-pmd test plan

This test plan includes vm2vm vhost-user/virtio-pmd(0.95) mergeable ,normal and vector_rx path test, and vm2vm vhost/virtio-pmd(1.0) mergeable, normal and vector_rx path test. Specially, two mergeable path test check the payload of each packets are valid by using pdump.

143.1. Prerequisites

Enable pcap lib in dpdk code and recompile:

Virtio-pmd <-> Vhost-user <-> Testpmd <-> Vhost-user <-> Virtio-pmd

143.3. Test Case 1: VM2VM vhost-user/virtio-pmd with vector_rx path

  1. Bind one physical nic port to igb_uio, then launch the testpmd by below commands:

     rm -rf vhost-net*
    ./testpmd -c 0xc0000 -n 4 --socket-mem 2048,2048 --legacy-mem --no-pci --file-prefix=vhost --vdev 'net_vhost0,iface=vhost-net0,queues=1' --vdev 'net_vhost1,iface=vhost-net1,queues=1'  -- -i --nb-cores=1 --txd=1024 --rxd=1024
    testpmd>set fwd mac
    testpmd>start
    
  2. Launch VM1 and VM2, mrg_rxbuf=off to disable mergeable:

  3. On VM1, enable pcap lib in dpdk code and recompile:

    diff --git a/config/common_base b/config/common_base
    index 6b96e0e80..0f7d22f22 100644

  4. Bind virtio with igb_uio driver,then run testpmd, set rxonly mode for virtio-pmd on VM1:

    ./testpmd -c 0x3 -n 4 --file-prefix=test -- -i --txd=1024 --rxd=1024 --max-pkt-len=9600
    testpmd>set fwd rxonly
    testpmd>start
    
  5. Bootup pdump in VM1:

    ./x86_64-native-linuxapp-gcc/app/dpdk-pdump -v --file-prefix=test -- --pdump  'port=0,queue=*,rx-dev=/root/pdump-rx.pcap,mbuf-size=8000'
    
  6. On VM2, bind virtio with igb_uio driver,then run testpmd, config tx_packets to 8k length with chain mode:

    ./testpmd -c 0x3 -n 4 -- -i --txd=1024 --rxd=1024 --max-pkt-len=9600
    testpmd>set fwd mac
    testpmd>set txpkts 2000,2000,2000,2000
    
  7. Send ten packets from virtio-pmd on VM2:

    testpmd>set burst 1
    testpmd>start tx_first 10
    
  8. Check payload is correct in each dumped packets.

  9. Relaunch testpmd in VM1:

    ./testpmd -c 0x3 -n 4 --file-prefix=test -- -i --txd=1024 --rxd=1024
    testpmd>set fwd rxonly
    testpmd>start
    
  10. Bootup pdump in VM1:

    ./x86_64-native-linuxapp-gcc/app/dpdk-pdump -v --file-prefix=test -- --pdump  'port=0,queue=*,rx-dev=/root/pdump-rx-small.pcap'
    
  11. Relaunch testpmd On VM2, send ten 64B packets from virtio-pmd on VM2:

    ./testpmd -c 0x3 -n 4 -- -i --txd=1024 --rxd=1024 --max-pkt-len=9600
    testpmd>set fwd mac
    testpmd>set burst 1
    testpmd>start tx_first 10
    
  12. Check payload is correct in each dumped packets.

143.9. Test Case 7: vm2vm vhost-user/virtio1.1-pmd mergeable path test with payload check

  1. Launch testpmd by below command:

    rm -rf vhost-net*
    ./testpmd -l 1-2 -n 4 --socket-mem 1024,1024 --no-pci \
    --vdev 'eth_vhost0,iface=vhost-net,queues=1' --vdev 'eth_vhost1,iface=vhost-net1,queues=1' -- \
    -i --nb-cores=1 --txd=1024 --rxd=1024
    testpmd>set fwd mac
    testpmd>start
    
  2. Launch virtio-user1 by below command:

    ./testpmd -n 4 -l 7-8 --socket-mem 1024,1024 \
    --no-pci --file-prefix=virtio1 \
    --vdev=net_virtio_user1,mac=00:01:02:03:04:05,path=./vhost-net1,queues=1,packed_vq=1,mrg_rxbuf=1,in_order=0 \
    -- -i --nb-cores=1 --txd=1024 --rxd=1024 --max-pkt-len=9600
    testpmd>set fwd rxonly
    testpmd>start
    
  3. Attach pdump secondary process to primary process by same file-prefix:

    ./x86_64-native-linuxapp-gcc/app/dpdk-pdump -v --file-prefix=virtio1 -- --pdump 'device_id=net_virtio_user1,queue=*,rx-dev=/root/pdump-rx.pcap,mbuf-size=8000'
    
  4. Launch virtio-user0 and send 8k length packets:

    ./testpmd -n 4 -l 5-6 --socket-mem 1024,1024 \
    --no-pci --file-prefix=virtio \
    --vdev=net_virtio_user0,mac=00:01:02:03:04:05,path=./vhost-net,queues=1,packed_vq=1,mrg_rxbuf=1,in_order=0 \
    -- -i --nb-cores=1 --txd=1024 --rxd=1024 --max-pkt-len=9600
    testpmd>set txpkts 2000,2000,2000,2000
    testpmd>set burst 1
    testpmd>start tx_first 10
    
  5. Check payload is correct in each dumped packets.
