RegEx: A regular expression is a concise and flexible means for matching strings of text, such as particular characters, words, or patterns of characters. A common abbreviation for this is “RegEx”.

RegEx device: A hardware or software-based implementation of RegEx device API for PCRE based pattern matching syntax and semantics.

PCRE RegEx syntax and semantics specification: http://regexkit.sourceforge.net/Documentation/pcre/pcrepattern.html

RegEx queue pair: Each RegEx device should have one or more queue pair to transmit a burst of pattern matching request and receive a burst of receive the pattern matching response. The pattern matching request/response embedded in rte_regex_ops structure.

Rule: A pattern matching rule expressed in PCRE RegEx syntax along with Match ID and Group ID to identify the rule upon the match.

Rule database: The RegEx device accepts regular expressions and converts them into a compiled rule database that can then be used to scan data. Compilation allows the device to analyze the given pattern(s) and pre-determine how to scan for these patterns in an optimized fashion that would be far too expensive to compute at run-time. A rule database contains a set of rules that compiled in device specific binary form.

Match ID or Rule ID: A unique identifier provided at the time of rule creation for the application to identify the rule upon match.

Group ID: Group of rules can be grouped under one group ID to enable rule isolation and effective pattern matching. A unique group identifier provided at the time of rule creation for the application to identify the rule upon match.

Scan: A pattern matching request through enqueue API.

It may possible that a given RegEx device may not support all the features of PCRE. The application may probe unsupported features through struct rte_regexdev_info::pcre_unsup_flags

By default, all the functions of the RegEx Device API exported by a PMD are lock-free functions which assume to not be invoked in parallel on different logical cores to work on the same target object. For instance, the dequeue function of a PMD cannot be invoked in parallel on two logical cores to operates on same RegEx queue pair. Of course, this function can be invoked in parallel by different logical core on different queue pair. It is the responsibility of the upper level application to enforce this rule.

In all functions of the RegEx API, the RegEx device is designated by an integer >= 0 named the device identifier dev_id

At the RegEx driver level, RegEx devices are represented by a generic data structure of type rte_regexdev.

RegEx devices are dynamically registered during the PCI/SoC device probing phase performed at EAL initialization time. When a RegEx device is being probed, a rte_regexdev structure and a new device identifier are allocated for that device. Then, the regexdev_init() function supplied by the RegEx driver matching the probed device is invoked to properly initialize the device.

The role of the device init function consists of resetting the hardware or software RegEx driver implementations.

If the device init operation is successful, the correspondence between the device identifier assigned to the new device and its associated rte_regexdev structure is effectively registered. Otherwise, both the rte_regexdev structure and the device identifier are freed.

The functions exported by the application RegEx API to setup a device designated by its device identifier must be invoked in the following order:

Then, the application can invoke, in any order, the functions exported by the RegEx API to enqueue pattern matching job, dequeue pattern matching response, get the stats, update the rule database, get/set device attributes and so on

If the application wants to change the configuration (i.e. call rte_regexdev_configure() or rte_regexdev_queue_pair_setup()), it must call rte_regexdev_stop() first to stop the device and then do the reconfiguration before calling rte_regexdev_start() again. The enqueue and dequeue functions should not be invoked when the device is stopped.

Finally, an application can close a RegEx device by invoking the rte_regexdev_close() function.

Each function of the application RegEx API invokes a specific function of the PMD that controls the target device designated by its device identifier.

For this purpose, all device-specific functions of a RegEx driver are supplied through a set of pointers contained in a generic structure of type regexdev_ops. The address of the regexdev_ops structure is stored in the rte_regexdev structure by the device init function of the RegEx driver, which is invoked during the PCI/SoC device probing phase, as explained earlier.

In other words, each function of the RegEx API simply retrieves the rte_regexdev structure associated with the device identifier and performs an indirect invocation of the corresponding driver function supplied in the regexdev_ops structure of the rte_regexdev structure.

For performance reasons, the address of the fast-path functions of the RegEx driver is not contained in the regexdev_ops structure. Instead, they are directly stored at the beginning of the rte_regexdev structure to avoid an extra indirect memory access during their invocation.

RTE RegEx device drivers do not use interrupts for enqueue or dequeue operation. Instead, RegEx drivers export Poll-Mode enqueue and dequeue functions to applications.

The enqueue operation submits a burst of RegEx pattern matching request to the RegEx device and the dequeue operation gets a burst of pattern matching response for the ones submitted through enqueue operation.

Typical application utilisation of the RegEx device API will follow the following programming flow.

Macro Definition Documentation

◆ RTE_REGEXDEV_CAPA_RUNTIME_COMPILATION_F

#define RTE_REGEXDEV_CAPA_RUNTIME_COMPILATION_F   (1ULL << 0)

RegEx device does support compiling the rules at runtime unlike loading only the pre-built rule database using struct rte_regexdev_config::rule_db in rte_regexdev_configure()

See also
struct rte_regexdev_config::rule_db, rte_regexdev_configure()
struct rte_regexdev_info::regexdev_capa

Definition at line 274 of file rte_regexdev.h.

◆ RTE_REGEXDEV_CAPA_SUPP_PCRE_START_ANCHOR_F

#define RTE_REGEXDEV_CAPA_SUPP_PCRE_START_ANCHOR_F   (1ULL << 1)

RegEx device support PCRE Anchor to start of match flag. Example RegEx is /\Gfoo\d/. Here \G asserts position at the end of the previous match or the start of the string for the first match. This position will change each time the RegEx is applied to the subject string. If the RegEx is applied to foo1foo2Zfoo3 the first two matches will be successful for foo1foo2 and fail for Zfoo3.

◆ RTE_REGEXDEV_CAPA_SUPP_PCRE_ATOMIC_GROUPING_F

#define RTE_REGEXDEV_CAPA_SUPP_PCRE_ATOMIC_GROUPING_F   (1ULL << 2)

RegEx device support PCRE Atomic grouping. Atomic groups are represented by (?>). An atomic group is a group that, when the RegEx engine exits from it, automatically throws away all backtracking positions remembered by any tokens inside the group. Example RegEx is a(?>bc|b)c if the given patterns are abc and abcc then a(bc|b)c matches both where as a(?>bc|b)c matches only abcc because atomic groups don't allow backtracing back to b.

◆ RTE_REGEXDEV_SUPP_PCRE_BACKTRACKING_CTRL_F

#define RTE_REGEXDEV_SUPP_PCRE_BACKTRACKING_CTRL_F   (1ULL << 3)

RegEx device support PCRE backtracking control verbs. Some examples of backtracing verbs are (*COMMIT), (*ACCEPT), (*FAIL), (*SKIP), (*PRUNE).

struct rte_regexdev_info::regexdev_capa

Definition at line 306 of file rte_regexdev.h.

◆ RTE_REGEXDEV_SUPP_PCRE_CALLOUTS_F

#define RTE_REGEXDEV_SUPP_PCRE_CALLOUTS_F   (1ULL << 4)

RegEx device support PCRE callouts. PCRE supports calling external function in between matches by using (?C). Example RegEx ABC(?C)D if a given patter is ABCD then the RegEx engine will parse ABC perform a userdefined callout and return a successful match at D.

struct rte_regexdev_info::regexdev_capa

Definition at line 314 of file rte_regexdev.h.

◆ RTE_REGEXDEV_SUPP_PCRE_BACKREFERENCE_F

#define RTE_REGEXDEV_SUPP_PCRE_BACKREFERENCE_F   (1ULL << 5)

RegEx device support PCRE backreference. Example RegEx is (\2ABC|(GHI))+ \2 matches the same text as most recently matched by the 2nd capturing group i.e. GHI.

See also
struct rte_regexdev_info::regexdev_capa

Definition at line 324 of file rte_regexdev.h.

◆ RTE_REGEXDEV_SUPP_PCRE_GREEDY_F

#define RTE_REGEXDEV_SUPP_PCRE_GREEDY_F   (1ULL << 6)

RegEx device support PCRE Greedy mode. For example if the RegEx is AB\d*? then *? represents zero or unlimited matches. In greedy mode the pattern AB12345 will be matched completely where as the ungreedy mode AB will be returned as the match.

See also
struct rte_regexdev_info::regexdev_capa

Definition at line 332 of file rte_regexdev.h.

◆ RTE_REGEXDEV_SUPP_PCRE_MATCH_ALL_F

#define RTE_REGEXDEV_SUPP_PCRE_MATCH_ALL_F   (1ULL << 7)

RegEx device support match all mode. For example if the RegEx is AB\d*? then *? represents zero or unlimited matches. In match all mode the pattern AB12345 will return 6 matches. AB, AB1, AB12, AB123, AB1234, AB12345.

◆ RTE_REGEXDEV_SUPP_PCRE_LOOKAROUND_ASRT_F

#define RTE_REGEXDEV_SUPP_PCRE_LOOKAROUND_ASRT_F   (1ULL << 8)

RegEx device support PCRE Lookaround assertions (Zero-width assertions). Example RegEx is [a-z]+\d+(?=!{3,}) if the given pattern is dwad1234! the RegEx engine doesn't report any matches because the assert (?=!{3,}) fails. The pattern dwad123!!! would return a successful match.

struct rte_regexdev_info::regexdev_capa

Definition at line 350 of file rte_regexdev.h.

◆ RTE_REGEXDEV_SUPP_PCRE_MATCH_POINT_RST_F

#define RTE_REGEXDEV_SUPP_PCRE_MATCH_POINT_RST_F   (1ULL << 9)

RegEx device doesn't support PCRE match point reset directive. Example RegEx is [a-z]+\K\d+ if the pattern is dwad123 then even though the entire pattern matches only 123 is reported as a match.

◆ RTE_REGEXDEV_SUPP_NEWLINE_CONVENTIONS_F

#define RTE_REGEXDEV_SUPP_NEWLINE_CONVENTIONS_F   (1ULL << 10)

RegEx support PCRE newline convention. Newline conventions are represented as follows: (*CR) carriage return (*LF) linefeed (*CRLF) carriage return, followed by linefeed (*ANYCRLF) any of the three above (*ANY) all Unicode newline sequences

struct rte_regexdev_info::regexdev_capa

Definition at line 369 of file rte_regexdev.h.

◆ RTE_REGEXDEV_SUPP_PCRE_NEWLINE_SEQ_F

#define RTE_REGEXDEV_SUPP_PCRE_NEWLINE_SEQ_F   (1ULL << 11)

RegEx device support PCRE newline sequence. The escape sequence \R will match any newline sequence. It is equivalent to: (?>\r\n|\n|\x0b|\f|\r|\x85).

struct rte_regexdev_info::regexdev_capa

Definition at line 381 of file rte_regexdev.h.

◆ RTE_REGEXDEV_SUPP_PCRE_POSSESSIVE_QUALIFIERS_F

#define RTE_REGEXDEV_SUPP_PCRE_POSSESSIVE_QUALIFIERS_F   (1ULL << 12)

RegEx device support PCRE possessive qualifiers. Example RegEx possessive qualifiers *+, ++, ?+, {m,n}+. Possessive quantifier repeats the token as many times as possible and it does not give up matches as the engine backtracks. With a possessive quantifier, the deal is all or nothing.

struct rte_regexdev_info::regexdev_capa

Definition at line 442 of file rte_regexdev.h.

◆ RTE_REGEXDEV_SUPP_CROSS_BUFFER_F

#define RTE_REGEXDEV_SUPP_CROSS_BUFFER_F   (1ULL << 20)

RegEx device support cross buffer match. Cross buffer matching means that the match can be detected even if the string was started in previous buffer. In case the device is configured as RTE_REGEXDEV_CFG_MATCH_AS_END the end offset will be relative for the first packet. For example RegEx is ABC the first buffer is xxxx second buffer yyyA and the last buffer BCzz. In case the match as end is configured the end offset will be 10.

The rte_regexdev_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.

Parameters
dev_idThe identifier of the device.
qp_idThe index of the queue pair which packets are to be enqueued for processing. The value must be in the range [0, nb_queue_pairs - 1] previously supplied to rte_regexdev_configure().
opsThe address of an array of nb_ops pointers to rte_regexdev_op structures which contain the regex operations to be processed.
nb_opsThe number of operations to process.
Returns
The number of operations actually enqueued on the regex device. The return value can be less than the value of the nb_ops parameter when the regex devices queue is full or if invalid parameters are specified in a rte_regexdev_op. If the return value is less than nb_ops, the remaining ops at the end of ops are not consumed and the caller has to take care of them.

◆ rte_regexdev_dequeue_burst()

static __rte_experimental uint16_t rte_regexdev_dequeue_burst ( uint8_t  dev_id,

Warning
EXPERIMENTAL: this API may change without prior notice.

Dequeue a burst of scan response from a queue on the RegEx device. The dequeued operation are stored in rte_regexdev_op structures whose pointers are supplied in the ops array.

The rte_regexdev_dequeue_burst() function returns the number of ops actually dequeued, which is the number of rte_regexdev_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_regexdev_dequeue_burst() function until a value less than nb_ops is returned.

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

Parameters
dev_idThe RegEx device identifier
qp_idThe index of the queue pair from which to retrieve processed packets. The value must be in the range [0, nb_queue_pairs - 1] previously supplied to rte_regexdev_configure().
opsThe address of an array of pointers to rte_regexdev_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_regexdev_op structures effectively supplied to the ops array. If the return value is less than nb_ops, the remaining ops at the end of ops are not consumed and the caller has to take care of them.
