Detailed Description

File-backed shared indexed array for DPDK.

Basic workflow is expected to be the following: 1) Allocate array either using rte_fbarray_init() or rte_fbarray_attach() (depending on whether it's shared between multiple DPDK processes) 2) find free spots using rte_fbarray_find_next_free() 3) get pointer to data in the free spot using rte_fbarray_get(), and copy data into the pointer (element size is fixed) 4) mark entry as used using rte_fbarray_set_used()

Calls to rte_fbarray_init() and rte_fbarray_destroy() will have consequences for all processes, while calls to rte_fbarray_attach() and rte_fbarray_detach() will only have consequences within a single process. Therefore, it is safe to call rte_fbarray_attach() or rte_fbarray_detach() while another process is using rte_fbarray, provided no other thread within the same process will try to use rte_fbarray before attaching or after detaching. It is not safe to call rte_fbarray_init() or rte_fbarray_destroy() while another thread or another process is using rte_fbarray.

Function Documentation

◆ rte_fbarray_init()

__rte_experimental int rte_fbarray_init ( struct rte_fbarray *  arr,
const char *  name,
unsigned int  len,
unsigned int  elt_sz 
)

Set up rte_fbarray structure and allocate underlying resources.

Call this function to correctly set up rte_fbarray and allocate underlying files that will be backing the data in the current process. Note that in order to use and share rte_fbarray between multiple processes, data pointed to by arr pointer must itself be allocated in shared memory.

Parameters
arrValid pointer to allocated rte_fbarray structure.
nameUnique name to be assigned to this array.
lenNumber of elements initially available in the array.
elt_szSize of each element.
Returns
  • 0 on success.
  • -1 on failure, with rte_errno indicating reason for failure.

◆ rte_fbarray_attach()

__rte_experimental int rte_fbarray_attach ( struct rte_fbarray *  arr)

Attach to a file backing an already allocated and correctly set up rte_fbarray structure.

Call this function to attach to file that will be backing the data in the current process. The structure must have been previously correctly set up with a call to rte_fbarray_init(). Calls to rte_fbarray_attach() are usually meant to be performed in a multiprocessing scenario, with data pointed to by arr pointer allocated in shared memory.

Parameters
arrValid pointer to allocated and correctly set up rte_fbarray structure.
Returns
  • 0 on success.
  • -1 on failure, with rte_errno indicating reason for failure.

◆ rte_fbarray_destroy()

__rte_experimental int rte_fbarray_destroy ( struct rte_fbarray *  arr)

Deallocate resources for an already allocated and correctly set up rte_fbarray structure, and remove the underlying file.

Call this function to deallocate all resources associated with an rte_fbarray structure within the current process. This will also zero-fill data pointed to by arr pointer and remove the underlying file backing the data, so it is expected that by the time this function is called, all other processes have detached from this rte_fbarray.

Parameters
arrValid pointer to allocated and correctly set up rte_fbarray structure.
Returns
  • 0 on success.
  • -1 on failure, with rte_errno indicating reason for failure.

◆ rte_fbarray_detach()

__rte_experimental int rte_fbarray_detach ( struct rte_fbarray *  arr)

Deallocate resources for an already allocated and correctly set up rte_fbarray structure.

Call this function to deallocate all resources associated with an rte_fbarray structure within current process.

Parameters
arrValid pointer to allocated and correctly set up rte_fbarray structure.
Returns
  • 0 on success.
  • -1 on failure, with rte_errno indicating reason for failure.

◆ rte_fbarray_get()

__rte_experimental void* rte_fbarray_get ( const struct rte_fbarray *  arr,

Parameters

idxIndex of an element to get a pointer to.
Returns

unsigned int  idx 
)

Parameters
arrValid pointer to allocated and correctly set up rte_fbarray structure.
