2013-10-29virtio_ring: change host notification APIHeinz Graalfs
Currently a host kick error is silently ignored and not reflected in the virtqueue of a particular virtio device. Changing the notify API for guest->host notification seems to be one prerequisite in order to be able to handle such errors in the context where the kick is triggered. This patch changes the notify API. The notify function must return a bool return value. It returns false if the host notification failed.

As expected, the simplified accessors are faster. for i in `seq 50`; do /usr/bin/time -f 'Wall time:%e' ./vringh_test --indirect --eventidx --parallel --fast-vringh; done 2>&1 | stats --trim-outliers: Before: Using CPUS 0 and 3 Guest: notified 0, pinged 39062-39063(39063) Host: notified 39062-39063(39063), pinged 0 Wall time:1.760000-2.220000(1.789167) After: Using CPUS 0 and 3 Guest: notified 0, pinged 39037-39063(39062) Host: notified 39037-39063(39062), pinged 0 Wall time:1.640000-1.810000(1.676875) Signed-off-by: Rusty Russell <>
2013-03-20tools/virtio: add vring_test.Rusty Russell
This is mainly to test the drivers/vhost/vringh.c code, but it also uses the drivers/virtio/virtio_ring.c code for the guest side. Usage for testing the basic implementation: ./vringh_test # Test with indirect descriptors ./vringh_test --indirect # Test with indirect descriptors and event indexex ./vringh_test --indirect --eventidx You can run a parallel stress test by adding --parallel to any of the above options. eg ./vringh_test --parallel: Using CPUS 0 and 3 Guest: notified 10107974, pinged 107970 Host: notified 108158, pinged 3172148 ./vringh_test --indirect --eventidx --parallel: Using CPUS 0 and 3 Guest: notified 156357, pinged 156251 Host: notified 156251, pinged 78179 Average of 50 times doing ./vringh_test --indirect --eventidx --parallel: 2.840000-3.040000(2.927292)user Signed-off-by: Rusty Russell <>
