2014-03-08pkt_sched: fq: do not hold qdisc lock while allocating memoryEric Dumazet1-6/+15
Resizing fq hash table allocates memory while holding qdisc spinlock, with BH disabled. This is definitely not good, as allocation might sleep. We can drop the lock and get it when needed, we hold RTNL so no other changes can happen at the same time.

2013-12-17pkt_sched: fq: more robust memory allocationEric Dumazet1-6/+28
This patch brings NUMA support and automatic fallback to vmalloc() in case kmalloc() failed to allocate FQ hash table. NUMA support depends on XPS being setup for the device before qdisc allocation. After a XPS change, it might be worth creating qdisc hierarchy again. Signed-off-by: Eric Dumazet <edumazet@google.com> Signed-off-by: David S. Miller <davem@davemloft.net>
2013-11-15pkt_sched: fq: fix pacing for small framesEric Dumazet1-4/+18
For performance reasons, sch_fq tried hard to not setup timers for every sent packet, using a quantum based heuristic : A delay is setup only if the flow exhausted its credit. Problem is that application limited flows can refill their credit for every queued packet, and they can evade pacing. This problem can also be triggered when TCP flows use small MSS values, as TSO auto sizing builds packets that are smaller than the default fq quantum (3028 bytes) This patch adds a 40 ms delay to guard flow credit refill.

2013-11-14pkt_sched: fq: change classification of control packetsMaciej ┼╗enczykowski1-7/+1
Initial sch_fq implementation copied code from pfifo_fast to classify a packet as a high prio packet. This clashes with setups using PRIO with say 7 bands, as one of the band could be incorrectly (mis)classified by FQ. Packets would be queued in the 'internal' queue, and no pacing ever happen for this special queue.

2013-10-08pkt_sched: fq: fix non TCP flows pacingEric Dumazet1-11/+9
Steinar reported FQ pacing was not working for UDP flows. It looks like the initial sk->sk_pacing_rate value of 0 was a wrong choice. We should init it to ~0U (unlimited) Then, TCA_FQ_FLOW_DEFAULT_RATE should be removed because it makes no real sense. The default rate is really unlimited, and we need to avoid a zero divide.

2013-10-01pkt_sched: fq: rate limiting improvementsEric Dumazet1-19/+26
FQ rate limiting suffers from two problems, reported by Steinar : 1) FQ enforces a delay when flow quantum is exhausted in order to reduce cpu overhead. But if packets are small, current delay computation is slightly wrong, and observed rates can be too high. Steinar had this problem because he disabled TSO and GSO, and default FQ quantum is 2*1514. (Of course, I wish recent TSO auto sizing changes will help to not having to disable TSO in the first place) 2) maxrate was not used for forwarded flows (skbs not attached to a socket) Tested: tc qdisc add dev eth0 root est 1sec 4sec fq maxrate 8Mbit netperf -H lpq84 -l 1000 & sleep 10 ; tc -s qdisc show dev eth0 qdisc fq 8003: root refcnt 32 limit 10000p flow_limit 100p buckets 1024 quantum 3028 initial_quantum 15140 maxrate 8000Kbit Sent 16819357 bytes 11258 pkt (dropped 0, overlimits 0 requeues 0) rate 7831Kbit 653pps backlog 7570b 5p requeues 0 44 flows (43 inactive, 1 throttled), next packet delay 2977352 ns 0 gc, 0 highprio, 5545 throttled lpq83:~# tcpdump -p -i eth0 host lpq84 -c 12 09:02:52.079484 IP lpq83 > lpq84: . 1389536928:1389538376(1448) ack 3808678021 win 457 <nop,nop,timestamp 961812 572609068> 09:02:52.079499 IP lpq83 > lpq84: . 1448:2896(1448) ack 1 win 457 <nop,nop,timestamp 961812 572609068> 09:02:52.079906 IP lpq84 > lpq83: . ack 2896 win 16384 <nop,nop,timestamp 572609080 961812> 09:02:52.082568 IP lpq83 > lpq84: . 2896:4344(1448) ack 1 win 457 <nop,nop,timestamp 961815 572609071> 09:02:52.082581 IP lpq83 > lpq84: . 4344:5792(1448) ack 1 win 457 <nop,nop,timestamp 961815 572609071> 09:02:52.083017 IP lpq84 > lpq83: . ack 5792 win 16384 <nop,nop,timestamp 572609083 961815> 09:02:52.085678 IP lpq83 > lpq84: . 5792:7240(1448) ack 1 win 457 <nop,nop,timestamp 961818 572609074> 09:02:52.085693 IP lpq83 > lpq84: . 7240:8688(1448) ack 1 win 457 <nop,nop,timestamp 961818 572609074> 09:02:52.086117 IP lpq84 > lpq83: . ack 8688 win 16384 <nop,nop,timestamp 572609086 961818> 09:02:52.088792 IP lpq83 > lpq84: . 8688:10136(1448) ack 1 win 457 <nop,nop,timestamp 961821 572609077> 09:02:52.088806 IP lpq83 > lpq84: . 10136:11584(1448) ack 1 win 457 <nop,nop,timestamp 961821 572609077> 09:02:52.089217 IP lpq84 > lpq83: . ack 11584 win 16384 <nop,nop,timestamp 572609090 961821> Reported-by: Steinar H.

2013-08-29pkt_sched: fq: Fair Queue packet schedulerEric Dumazet1-0/+792
- Uses perfect flow match (not stochastic hash like SFQ/FQ_codel) - Uses the new_flow/old_flow separation from FQ_codel - New flows get an initial credit allowing IW10 without added delay. - Special FIFO queue for high prio packets (no need for PRIO + FQ) - Uses a hash table of RB trees to locate the flows at enqueue() time - Smart on demand gc (at enqueue() time, RB tree lookup evicts old unused flows) - Dynamic memory allocations. - Designed to allow millions of concurrent flows per Qdisc. - Small memory footprint : ~8K per Qdisc, and 104 bytes per flow. - Single high resolution timer for throttled flows (if any). - One RB tree to link throttled flows. - Ability to have a max rate per flow. We might add a socket option to add per socket limitation. Attempts have been made to add TCP pacing in TCP stack, but this seems to add complex code to an already complex stack. TCP pacing is welcomed for flows having idle times, as the cwnd permits TCP stack to queue a possibly large number of packets. This removes the 'slow start after idle' choice, hitting badly large BDP flows, and applications delivering chunks of data as video streams. Nicely spaced packets : Here interface is 10Gbit, but flow bottleneck is ~20Mbit cwin is big, yet FQ avoids the typical bursts generated by TCP (as in netperf TCP_RR -- -r 100000,100000) 15:01:23.545279 IP A > B: . 78193:81089(2896) ack 65248 win 3125 <nop,nop,timestamp 1115 11597805> 15:01:23.545394 IP B > A: . ack 81089 win 3668 <nop,nop,timestamp 11597985 1115> 15:01:23.546488 IP A > B: . 81089:83985(2896) ack 65248 win 3125 <nop,nop,timestamp 1115 11597805> 15:01:23.546565 IP B > A: . ack 83985 win 3668 <nop,nop,timestamp 11597986 1115> 15:01:23.547713 IP A > B: . 83985:86881(2896) ack 65248 win 3125 <nop,nop,timestamp 1115 11597805> 15:01:23.547778 IP B > A: . ack 86881 win 3668 <nop,nop,timestamp 11597987 1115> 15:01:23.548911 IP A > B: . 86881:89777(2896) ack 65248 win 3125 <nop,nop,timestamp 1115 11597805> 15:01:23.548949 IP B > A: . ack 89777 win 3668 <nop,nop,timestamp 11597988 1115> 15:01:23.550116 IP A > B: . 89777:92673(2896) ack 65248 win 3125 <nop,nop,timestamp 1115 11597805> 15:01:23.550182 IP B > A: . ack 92673 win 3668 <nop,nop,timestamp 11597989 1115> 15:01:23.551333 IP A > B: . 92673:95569(2896) ack 65248 win 3125 <nop,nop,timestamp 1115 11597805> 15:01:23.551406 IP B > A: . ack 95569 win 3668 <nop,nop,timestamp 11597991 1115> 15:01:23.552539 IP A > B: . 95569:98465(2896) ack 65248 win 3125 <nop,nop,timestamp 1115 11597805> 15:01:23.552576 IP B > A: . ack 98465 win 3668 <nop,nop,timestamp 11597992 1115> 15:01:23.553756 IP A > B: . 98465:99913(1448) ack 65248 win 3125 <nop,nop,timestamp 1115 11597805> 15:01:23.554138 IP A > B: P 99913:100001(88) ack 65248 win 3125 <nop,nop,timestamp 1115 11597805> 15:01:23.554204 IP B > A: . ack 100001 win 3668 <nop,nop,timestamp 11597993 1115> 15:01:23.554234 IP B > A: . 65248:68144(2896) ack 100001 win 3668 <nop,nop,timestamp 11597993 1115> 15:01:23.555620 IP B > A: . 68144:71040(2896) ack 100001 win 3668 <nop,nop,timestamp 11597993 1115> 15:01:23.557005 IP B > A: . 71040:73936(2896) ack 100001 win 3668 <nop,nop,timestamp 11597993 1115> 15:01:23.558390 IP B > A: . 73936:76832(2896) ack 100001 win 3668 <nop,nop,timestamp 11597993 1115> 15:01:23.559773 IP B > A: . 76832:79728(2896) ack 100001 win 3668 <nop,nop,timestamp 11597993 1115> 15:01:23.561158 IP B > A: . 79728:82624(2896) ack 100001 win 3668 <nop,nop,timestamp 11597994 1115> 15:01:23.562543 IP B > A: . 82624:85520(2896) ack 100001 win 3668 <nop,nop,timestamp 11597994 1115> 15:01:23.563928 IP B > A: . 85520:88416(2896) ack 100001 win 3668 <nop,nop,timestamp 11597994 1115> 15:01:23.565313 IP B > A: . 88416:91312(2896) ack 100001 win 3668 <nop,nop,timestamp 11597994 1115> 15:01:23.566698 IP B > A: . 91312:94208(2896) ack 100001 win 3668 <nop,nop,timestamp 11597994 1115> 15:01:23.568083 IP B > A: . 94208:97104(2896) ack 100001 win 3668 <nop,nop,timestamp 11597994 1115> 15:01:23.569467 IP B > A: . 97104:100000(2896) ack 100001 win 3668 <nop,nop,timestamp 11597994 1115> 15:01:23.570852 IP B > A: . 100000:102896(2896) ack 100001 win 3668 <nop,nop,timestamp 11597994 1115> 15:01:23.572237 IP B > A: . 102896:105792(2896) ack 100001 win 3668 <nop,nop,timestamp 11597994 1115> 15:01:23.573639 IP B > A: . 105792:108688(2896) ack 100001 win 3668 <nop,nop,timestamp 11597994 1115> 15:01:23.575024 IP B > A: . 108688:111584(2896) ack 100001 win 3668 <nop,nop,timestamp 11597994 1115> 15:01:23.576408 IP B > A: . 111584:114480(2896) ack 100001 win 3668 <nop,nop,timestamp 11597994 1115> 15:01:23.577793 IP B > A: . 114480:117376(2896) ack 100001 win 3668 <nop,nop,timestamp 11597994 1115> TCP timestamps show that most packets from B were queued in the same ms timeframe (TSval 1159799{3,4}), but FQ managed to send them right in time to avoid a big burst.
