parentnet_sched: update bstats in dequeue() (diff)
codel: Controlled Delay AQM
An implementation of CoDel AQM, from Kathleen Nichols and Van Jacobson. http://queue.acm.org/detail.cfm?id=2209336 This AQM main input is no longer queue size in bytes or packets, but the delay packets stay in (FIFO) queue. As we don't have infinite memory, we still can drop packets in enqueue() in case of massive load, but mean of CoDel is to drop packets in dequeue(), using a control law based on two simple parameters : target : target sojourn time (default 5ms) interval : width of moving time window (default 100ms) Based on initial work from Dave Taht. Refactored to help future codel inclusion as a plugin for other linux qdisc (FQ_CODEL, ...), like RED. include/net/codel.h contains codel algorithm as close as possible than Kathleen reference. net/sched/sch_codel.c contains the linux qdisc specific glue. Separate structures permit a memory efficient implementation of fq_codel (to be sent as a separate work) : Each flow has its own struct codel_vars. timestamps are taken at enqueue() time with 1024 ns precision, allowing a range of 2199 seconds in queue, and 100Gb links support. iproute2 uses usec as base unit. Selected packets are dropped, unless ECN is enabled and packets can get ECN mark instead. Tested from 2Mb to 10Gb speeds with no particular problems, on ixgbe and tg3 drivers (BQL enabled). Usage: tc qdisc ... codel [ limit PACKETS ] [ target TIME ] [ interval TIME ] [ ecn ] qdisc codel 10: parent 1:1 limit 2000p target 3.0ms interval 60.0ms ecn Sent 13347099587 bytes 8815805 pkt (dropped 0, overlimits 0 requeues 0) rate 202365Kbit 16708pps backlog 113550b 75p requeues 0 count 116 lastcount 98 ldelay 4.3ms dropping drop_next 816us maxpacket 1514 ecn_mark 84399 drop_overlimit 0 CoDel must be seen as a base module, and should be used keeping in mind there is still a FIFO queue. So a typical setup will probably need a hierarchy of several qdiscs and packet classifiers to be able to meet whatever constraints a user might have. One possible example would be to use fq_codel, which combines Fair Queueing and CoDel, in replacement of sfq / sfq_red.
