[PATCH 0/5] rtcache remove respin

[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]

It's been a while and there were of course a lot of merge hassles with
the most recent set I posted, so I respun these patches tonight
because I wanted to see the effects of the recent rpfilter hacks on an
rtcache-less system.

On a SPARC T3-1:

1) Output route lookup: ~2800 cycles
2) Input route lookups: ~3000 cycles (rpfilter=0)
                        ~4300 cycles (rpfilter=1)

Another nice part is how small struct rtable is after this patch set:

struct rtable {
	struct dst_entry        dst;
	int                     rt_genid;
	unsigned int            rt_flags;
	__u16                   rt_type;
	__be32                  rt_dst;
	int                     rt_route_iif;
	int                     rt_iif;
	int                     rt_oif;
	__be32                  rt_gateway;
	u32                     rt_peer_genid;
	unsigned long           _peer;
	struct fib_info         *fi;

which is about 208 bytes on sparc64.
