2011-07-06packet: Add 'cpu' fanout policy.David S. Miller1-0/+1
Unfortunately we have to use a real modulus here as the multiply trick won't work as effectively with cpu numbers as it does with rxhash values. Signed-off-by: David S. Miller <davem@davemloft.net>
2011-07-05packet: Add pre-defragmentation support for ipv4 fanouts.David S. Miller1-0/+1
The skb->rxhash cannot be properly computed if the packet is a fragment. To alleviate this, allow the AF_PACKET client to ask for defragmentation to be done at demux time. Signed-off-by: David S. Miller <davem@davemloft.net>
2011-07-05packet: Add fanout support.David S. Miller1-0/+4
Fanouts allow packet capturing to be demuxed to a set of AF_PACKET sockets. Two fanout policies are implemented: 1) Hashing based upon skb->rxhash 2) Pure round-robin An AF_PACKET socket must be fully bound before it tries to add itself to a fanout. All AF_PACKET sockets trying to join the same fanout must all have the same bind settings. Fanouts are identified (within a network namespace) by a 16-bit ID. The first socket to try to add itself to a fanout with a particular ID, creates that fanout. When the last socket leaves the fanout (which happens only when the socket is closed), that fanout is destroyed. Signed-off-by: David S. Miller <davem@davemloft.net>

2011-06-01af-packet: Add flag to distinguish VID 0 from no-vlan.Ben Greear1-0/+1
Currently, user-space cannot determine if a 0 tcp_vlan_tci means there is no VLAN tag or the VLAN ID was zero. Add flag to make this explicit. User-space can check for TP_STATUS_VLAN_VALID || tp_vlan_tci > 0, which will be backwards compatible. Older could would have just checked for tp_vlan_tci, so it will work no worse than before.

2010-06-02packet_mmap: expose hw packet timestamps to network packet capture utilitiesScott McMillan1-0/+1
This patch adds a setting, PACKET_TIMESTAMP, to specify the packet timestamp source that is exported to capture utilities like tcpdump by packet_mmap. PACKET_TIMESTAMP accepts the same integer bit field as SO_TIMESTAMPING. However, only the SOF_TIMESTAMPING_SYS_HARDWARE and SOF_TIMESTAMPING_RAW_HARDWARE values are currently recognized by PACKET_TIMESTAMP. SOF_TIMESTAMPING_SYS_HARDWARE takes precedence over SOF_TIMESTAMPING_RAW_HARDWARE if both bits are set. If PACKET_TIMESTAMP is not set, a software timestamp generated inside the networking stack is used (the behavior before this setting was added).

2010-02-04packet: Add GSO/csum offload support.Sridhar Samudrala1-0/+1
This patch adds GSO/checksum offload to af_packet sockets using virtio_net_hdr. Based on Rusty's patch to add this support to tun. It allows GSO/checksum offload to be enabled when using raw socket backend with virtio_net. Adds PACKET_VNET_HDR socket option to prepend virtio_net_hdr in the receive path and process/skip virtio_net_hdr in the send path. This option is only allowed with SOCK_RAW sockets attached to ethernet type devices. v2 updates ---------- Michael's Comments - Perform length check in packet_snd() when GSO is off even when vnet_hdr is present. - Check for SKB_GSO_FCOE type and return -EINVAL - don't allow tx/rx ring when vnet_hdr is enabled. Herbert's Comments - Removed ethernet specific code. - protocol value is assumed to be passed in by the caller. Signed-off-by: Sridhar Samudrala <sri@us.ibm.com> Signed-off-by: David S.

2009-10-05af_packet: add interframe drop cmsg (v6)Neil Horman1-0/+2
Add Ancilliary data to better represent loss information I've had a few requests recently to provide more detail regarding frame loss during an AF_PACKET packet capture session. Specifically the requestors want to see where in a packet sequence frames were lost, i.e. they want to see that 40 frames were lost between frames 302 and 303 in a packet capture file. In order to do this we need: 1) The kernel to export this data to user space 2) The applications to make use of it This patch addresses item (1). It does this by doing the following: A) Anytime we drop a frame for which we would increment po->stats.tp_drops, we also no increment a stats called po->stats.tp_gap. B) Every time we successfully enqueue a frame to sk_receive_queue, we record the value of po->stats.tp_gap in skb->mark. skb->cb would nominally be the place to record this, but since all the space there is used up, we're overloading skb->mark. Its safe to do since any enqueued packet is guaranteed to be unshared at this point, and skb->mark isn't used for anything else in the rx path to the application. After we record tp_gap in the skb, we zero po->stats.tp_gap. This allows us to keep a counter of the number of frames lost between any two enqueued packets C) When the application goes to dequeue a frame from the packet socket, we look at skb->mark for that frame. If it is non-zero, we add a cmsg chunk to the msghdr of level SOL_PACKET and type PACKET_GAPDATA. Its a 32 bit integer that represents the number of frames lost between this packet and the last previous frame received. Note there is a chance that if there is frame loss after a receive, and then the socket is closed, some gap data might be lost. This is covered by the use of the PACKET_AUXDATA socket option, which gives total loss data. With a bit of math, the final gap can be determined that way. I've tested this patch myself, and it works well.

2009-05-21af_packet: Teach to listen for multiple unicast addresses.Eric W. Biederman1-0/+1
The the PACKET_ADD_MEMBERSHIP and the PACKET_DROP_MEMBERSHIP setsockopt calls for af_packet already has all of the infrastructure needed to subscribe to multiple mac addresses. All that is missing is a flag to say that the address we want to listen on is a unicast address. So introduce PACKET_MR_UNICAST and wire it up to dev_unicast_add and dev_unicast_delete. Additionally I noticed that errors from dev_mc_add were not propagated from packet_dev_mc so fix that. Signed-off-by: Eric W. Biederman <ebiederm@aristanetworks.com> Signed-off-by: David S.

New packet socket feature that makes packet socket more efficient for transmission. - It reduces number of system call through a PACKET_TX_RING mechanism, based on PACKET_RX_RING (Circular buffer allocated in kernel space which is mmapped from user space). - It minimizes CPU copy using fragmented SKB (almost zero copy).

2008-07-14packet: support extensible, 64 bit clean mmaped ring structurePatrick McHardy1-0/+21
The tpacket_hdr is not 64 bit clean due to use of an unsigned long and can't be extended because the following struct sockaddr_ll needs to be at a fixed offset. Add support for a version 2 tpacket protocol that removes these limitations. Userspace can query the header size through a new getsockopt option and change the protocol version through a setsockopt option. The changes needed to switch to the new protocol version are: 1. replace struct tpacket_hdr by struct tpacket2_hdr 2. query header len and save 3. set protocol version to 2 - set up ring as usual 4. for getting the sockaddr_ll, use (void *)hdr + TPACKET_ALIGN(hdrlen) instead of (void *)hdr + TPACKET_ALIGN(sizeof(struct tpacket_hdr)) Steps 2 and 4 can be omitted if the struct sockaddr_ll isn't needed.

2007-04-25[AF_PACKET]: Add option to return orig_dev to userspace.Peter P. Waskiewicz Jr1-0/+1
Add a packet socket option to allow the orig_dev index to be returned to userspace when passing traffic through a decapsulated device, such as the bonding driver. This is very useful for layer 2 traffic being able to report which physical device actually received the traffic, instead of having the encapsulating device hide that information. The new option is called PACKET_ORIGDEV. Signed-off-by: Peter P. Waskiewicz Jr. <peter.p.waskiewicz.jr@intel.com> Signed-off-by: David S. Miller <davem@davemloft.net>
2007-02-08[PACKET]: Add optional checksum computation for recvmsgHerbert Xu1-0/+10
This patch is needed to make ISC's DHCP server (and probably other DHCP servers/clients using AF_PACKET) to be able to serve another client on the same Xen host. The problem is that packets between different domains on the same Xen host only have partial checksums. Unfortunately this piece of information is not passed along in AF_PACKET unless you're using the mmap interface. Since dhcpd doesn't support packet-mmap, UDP packets from the same host come out with apparently bogus checksums. This patch adds a mechanism for AF_PACKET recvmsg(2) to return the status along with the packet. It does so by adding a new cmsg that contains this information along with some other relevant data such as the original packet length. I didn't include the time stamp information since there is already a cmsg for that. This patch also changes the mmap code to set the CSUMNOTREADY flag on all packets instead of just outoing packets on cooked sockets.

2005-04-16Linux-2.6.12-rc2Linus Torvalds1-0/+102
Initial git repository build. I'm not bothering with the full history, even though we have it. We can create a separate "historical" git archive of that later if we want to, and in the meantime it's about 3.2GB when imported into git - space that would just make the early git days unnecessarily complicated, when we don't have a lot of good infrastructure for it. Let it rip!
