Detailed Description

RTE Read-Write Locks

This file defines an API for read-write locks. The lock is used to protect data that allows multiple readers in parallel, but only one writer. All readers are blocked until the writer is finished writing.

This version does not give preference to readers or writers and does not starve either readers or writers.

Macro Definition Documentation

◆ RTE_RWLOCK_WAIT

#define RTE_RWLOCK_WAIT   0x1 /* Writer is waiting */

The rte_rwlock_t type.

Readers increment the counter by RTE_RWLOCK_READ (4) Writers set the RTE_RWLOCK_WRITE bit when lock is held and set the RTE_RWLOCK_WAIT bit while waiting.

Definition at line 52 of file rte_rwlock.h.

◆ RTE_RWLOCK_INITIALIZER

#define RTE_RWLOCK_INITIALIZER   { 0 }

A static rwlock initializer.

Definition at line 65 of file rte_rwlock.h.

Function Documentation

◆ rte_rwlock_init()

static void rte_rwlock_init ( rte_rwlock_t *  rwl)
inlinestatic

Initialize the rwlock to an unlocked state.

Parameters
rwlA pointer to the rwlock structure.

Definition at line 74 of file rte_rwlock.h.

◆ rte_rwlock_read_lock()

static void rte_rwlock_read_lock ( rte_rwlock_t *  rwl)
inlinestatic

Take a read lock. Loop until the lock is held.

Parameters
rwlA pointer to a rwlock structure.

Definition at line 86 of file rte_rwlock.h.

◆ rte_rwlock_read_trylock()

static int rte_rwlock_read_trylock ( rte_rwlock_t *  rwl)
inlinestatic

Try to take a read lock.

Parameters
rwlA pointer to a rwlock structure.
Returns
  • zero if the lock is successfully taken
  • -EBUSY if lock could not be acquired for reading because a writer holds the lock

Definition at line 121 of file rte_rwlock.h.

◆ rte_rwlock_read_unlock()

static void rte_rwlock_read_unlock ( rte_rwlock_t *  rwl)
inlinestatic

Release a read lock.

Parameters
rwlA pointer to the rwlock structure.

Definition at line 152 of file rte_rwlock.h.

◆ rte_rwlock_write_trylock()

static int rte_rwlock_write_trylock ( rte_rwlock_t *  rwl)
inlinestatic

Try to take a write lock.

Parameters
rwlA pointer to a rwlock structure.
Returns
  • zero if the lock is successfully taken
  • -EBUSY if lock could not be acquired for writing because it was already locked for reading or writing

Definition at line 168 of file rte_rwlock.h.

◆ rte_rwlock_write_lock()

static void rte_rwlock_write_lock ( rte_rwlock_t *  rwl)
inlinestatic

Take a write lock. Loop until the lock is held.

Parameters
rwlA pointer to a rwlock structure.

Definition at line 188 of file rte_rwlock.h.

◆ rte_rwlock_write_unlock()

static void rte_rwlock_write_unlock ( rte_rwlock_t *  rwl)
inlinestatic

Release a write lock.

Parameters
rwlA pointer to a rwlock structure.

Definition at line 221 of file rte_rwlock.h.

◆ rte_rwlock_read_lock_tm()

static void rte_rwlock_read_lock_tm ( rte_rwlock_t *  rwl)
inlinestatic

Try to execute critical section in a hardware memory transaction, if it fails or not available take a read lock

NOTE: An attempt to perform a HW I/O operation inside a hardware memory transaction always aborts the transaction since the CPU is not able to roll-back should the transaction fail. Therefore, hardware transactional locks are not advised to be used around rte_eth_rx_burst() and rte_eth_tx_burst() calls.

Parameters
rwlA pointer to a rwlock structure.

◆ rte_rwlock_read_unlock_tm()

static void rte_rwlock_read_unlock_tm ( rte_rwlock_t *  rwl)
inlinestatic

Commit hardware memory transaction or release the read lock if the lock is used as a fall-back

Parameters
rwlA pointer to the rwlock structure.

◆ rte_rwlock_write_lock_tm()

static void rte_rwlock_write_lock_tm ( rte_rwlock_t *  rwl)
inlinestatic

Try to execute critical section in a hardware memory transaction, if it fails or not available take a write lock

NOTE: An attempt to perform a HW I/O operation inside a hardware memory transaction always aborts the transaction since the CPU is not able to roll-back should the transaction fail. Therefore, hardware transactional locks are not advised to be used around rte_eth_rx_burst() and rte_eth_tx_burst() calls.

Parameters
rwlA pointer to a rwlock structure.

◆ rte_rwlock_write_unlock_tm()

static void rte_rwlock_write_unlock_tm ( rte_rwlock_t *  rwl)
inlinestatic

Commit hardware memory transaction or release the write lock if the lock is used as a fall-back

Parameters
rwlA pointer to a rwlock structure.
