parentsamples/bpf: extend test_cgrp2_attach2 test to use per-cpu cgroup storage (diff)
selftests/bpf: cgroup local storage-based network counters
This commit adds a bpf kselftest, which demonstrates how percpu and shared cgroup local storage can be used for efficient lookup-free network accounting. Cgroup local storage provides generic memory area with a very efficient lookup free access. To avoid expensive atomic operations for each packet, per-cpu cgroup local storage is used. Each packet is initially charged to a per-cpu counter, and only if the counter reaches certain value (32 in this case), the charge is moved into the global atomic counter. This allows to amortize atomic operations, keeping reasonable accuracy. The test also implements a naive network traffic throttling, mostly to demonstrate the possibility of bpf cgroup--based network bandwidth control.
