samples/bpf: extend xdp_rxq_info to read packet payload
There is a cost associated with reading the packet data payload that this test ignored. Add option --read to allow enabling reading part of the payload. This sample/tool helps us analyse an issue observed with a NIC mlx5 (ConnectX-5 Ex) and an Intel(R) Xeon(R) CPU E5-1650 v4. With no_touch of data: Running XDP on dev:mlx5p1 (ifindex:8) action:XDP_DROP options:no_touch XDP stats CPU pps issue-pps XDP-RX CPU 0 14,465,157 0 XDP-RX CPU 1 14,464,728 0 XDP-RX CPU 2 14,465,283 0 XDP-RX CPU 3 14,465,282 0 XDP-RX CPU 4 14,464,159 0 XDP-RX CPU 5 14,465,379 0 XDP-RX CPU total 86,789,992 When not touching data, we observe that the CPUs have idle cycles. When reading data the CPUs are 100% busy in softirq. With reading data: Running XDP on dev:mlx5p1 (ifindex:8) action:XDP_DROP options:read XDP stats CPU pps issue-pps XDP-RX CPU 0 9,620,639 0 XDP-RX CPU 1 9,489,843 0 XDP-RX CPU 2 9,407,854 0 XDP-RX CPU 3 9,422,289 0 XDP-RX CPU 4 9,321,959 0 XDP-RX CPU 5 9,395,242 0 XDP-RX CPU total 56,657,828 The effect seen above is a result of cache-misses occuring when more RXQs are being used. Based on perf-event observations, our conclusion is that the CPUs DDIO (Direct Data I/O) choose to deliver packet into main memory, instead of L3-cache. We also found, that this can be mitigated by either using less RXQs or by reducing NICs the RX-ring size.
