The capabilities field of dev_info is set to point to the first element of an array of struct rte_compressdev_capabilities. The element after the last valid element has it's op field set to RTE_COMP_ALGO_LIST_END.

◆ rte_compressdev_dequeue_burst()

__rte_experimental uint16_t rte_compressdev_dequeue_burst ( uint8_t  dev_id,
uint16_t  qp_id,
struct rte_comp_op **  ops,
uint16_t  nb_ops 
)

Dequeue a burst of processed compression operations from a queue on the comp device. The dequeued operation are stored in rte_comp_op structures whose pointers are supplied in the ops array.

The rte_compressdev_dequeue_burst() function returns the number of ops actually dequeued, which is the number of rte_comp_op data structures effectively supplied into the ops array.

A return value equal to nb_ops indicates that the queue contained at least nb_ops operations, and this is likely to signify that other processed operations remain in the devices output queue. Applications implementing a "retrieve as many processed operations as possible" policy can check this specific case and keep invoking the rte_compressdev_dequeue_burst() function until a value less than nb_ops is returned.

The rte_compressdev_dequeue_burst() function does not provide any error notification to avoid the corresponding overhead.

Note
: operation ordering is not maintained within the queue pair.
: In case op status = OUT_OF_SPACE_TERMINATED, op.consumed=0 and the op must be resubmitted with the same input data and a larger output buffer. op.produced is usually 0, but in decompression cases a PMD may return > 0 and the application may find it useful to inspect that data. This status is only returned on STATELESS ops.
: In case op status = OUT_OF_SPACE_RECOVERABLE, op.produced can be used and next op in stream should continue on from op.consumed+1 with a fresh output buffer. Consumed=0, produced=0 is an unusual but allowed case. There may be useful state/history stored in the PMD, even though no output was produced yet.
Parameters
dev_idCompress device identifier
qp_idThe index of the queue pair from which to retrieve processed operations. The value must be in the range [0, nb_queue_pair - 1] previously supplied to rte_compressdev_configure()
opsThe address of an array of pointers to rte_comp_op structures that must be large enough to store nb_ops pointers in it
nb_opsThe maximum number of operations to dequeue
Returns
  • The number of operations actually dequeued, which is the number of pointers to rte_comp_op structures effectively supplied to the ops array.

◆ rte_compressdev_enqueue_burst()

__rte_experimental uint16_t rte_compressdev_enqueue_burst ( uint8_t  dev_id,
uint16_t  qp_id,
struct rte_comp_op **  ops,
uint16_t  nb_ops 
)

Enqueue a burst of operations for processing on a compression device.

The rte_compressdev_enqueue_burst() function is invoked to place comp operations on the queue qp_id of the device designated by its dev_id.

The nb_ops parameter is the number of operations to process which are supplied in the ops array of rte_comp_op structures.

The rte_compressdev_enqueue_burst() function returns the number of operations it actually enqueued for processing. A return value equal to nb_ops means that all packets have been enqueued.

Note
All compression operations are Out-of-place (OOP) operations, as the size of the output data is different to the size of the input data.
The rte_comp_op contains both input and output parameters and is the vehicle for the application to pass data into and out of the PMD. While an op is inflight, i.e. once it has been enqueued, the private_xform or stream attached to it and any mbufs or memory referenced by it should not be altered or freed by the application. The PMD may use or change some of this data at any time until it has been returned in a dequeue operation.
The flush flag only applies to operations which return SUCCESS. In OUT_OF_SPACE cases whether STATEFUL or STATELESS, data in dest buffer is as if flush flag was FLUSH_NONE.
flush flag only applies in compression direction. It has no meaning for decompression.
: operation ordering is not maintained within the queue pair.
Parameters
dev_idCompress device identifier
qp_idThe index of the queue pair on which operations are to be enqueued for processing. The value must be in the range [0, nb_queue_pairs - 1] previously supplied to rte_compressdev_configure
opsThe address of an array of nb_ops pointers to rte_comp_op structures which contain the operations to be processed
nb_opsThe number of operations to process
Returns
The number of operations actually enqueued on the device. The return value can be less than the value of the nb_ops parameter when the comp devices queue is full or if invalid parameters are specified in a rte_comp_op.

◆ rte_compressdev_stream_create()

__rte_experimental int rte_compressdev_stream_create ( uint8_t  dev_id,
const struct rte_comp_xform xform,
void **  stream 
)

This should alloc a stream from the device's mempool and initialise it. The application should call this API when setting up for the stateful processing of a set of data on a device. The API can be called multiple times to set up a stream for each data set. The handle returned is only for use with ops of op_type STATEFUL and must be passed to the PMD with every op in the data stream

Parameters
dev_idCompress device identifier
xformxform data
streamPointer to where PMD's private stream handle should be stored
Returns
  • 0 if successful and valid stream handle
  • <0 in error cases
  • Returns -EINVAL if input parameters are invalid.
  • Returns -ENOTSUP if comp device does not support STATEFUL operations.
  • Returns -ENOTSUP if comp device does not support the comp transform.
  • Returns -ENOMEM if the private stream could not be allocated.

◆ rte_compressdev_stream_free()

__rte_experimental int rte_compressdev_stream_free ( uint8_t  dev_id,
void *  stream 
)

This should clear the stream and return it to the device's mempool.

Parameters
dev_idCompress device identifier
streamPMD's private stream data
Returns
  • 0 if successful
  • <0 in error cases
  • Returns -EINVAL if input parameters are invalid.
  • Returns -ENOTSUP if comp device does not support STATEFUL operations.
  • Returns -EBUSY if can't free stream as there are inflight operations

◆ rte_compressdev_private_xform_create()

__rte_experimental int rte_compressdev_private_xform_create ( uint8_t  dev_id,
const struct rte_comp_xform xform,
void **  private_xform 
)

This should alloc a private_xform from the device's mempool and initialise it. The application should call this API when setting up for stateless processing on a device. If it returns non-shareable, then the appl cannot share this handle with multiple in-flight ops and should call this API again to get a separate handle for every in-flight op. The handle returned is only valid for use with ops of op_type STATELESS.

Parameters
dev_idCompress device identifier
xformxform data
private_xformPointer to where PMD's private_xform handle should be stored
Returns
  • if successful returns 0 and valid private_xform handle
  • <0 in error cases
  • Returns -EINVAL if input parameters are invalid.
  • Returns -ENOTSUP if comp device does not support the comp transform.
  • Returns -ENOMEM if the private_xform could not be allocated.

◆ rte_compressdev_private_xform_free()

__rte_experimental int rte_compressdev_private_xform_free ( uint8_t  dev_id,
void *  private_xform 
)

This should clear the private_xform and return it to the device's mempool. It is the application's responsibility to ensure that private_xform data is not cleared while there are still in-flight operations using it.

Parameters
dev_idCompress device identifier
private_xformPMD's private_xform data
Returns
  • 0 if successful
  • <0 in error cases
  • Returns -EINVAL if input parameters are invalid.
