DESCRIPTION

devlink sb show - display available shared buffers and their attributes
DEV
- specifies the devlink device to show shared buffers. If this argument is omitted all shared buffers of all devices are listed.

SB_INDEX - specifies the shared buffer. If this argument is omitted shared buffer with index 0 is selected. Behaviour of this argument it the same for every command.

devlink sb pool show - display available pools and their attributes
DEV
- specifies the devlink device to show pools. If this argument is omitted all pools of all devices are listed.

devlink sb pool set - set attributes of pool
DEV
- specifies the devlink device to set pool.
size
POOL_SIZE

size of the pool in Bytes.

thtype { static | dynamic }

pool threshold type.

static - Threshold values for the pool will be passed in Bytes.

dynamic - Threshold values ("to_alpha") for the pool will be used to compute alpha parameter according to formula:

alpha = 2 ^ (to_alpha - 10)

The range of the passed value is between 0 to 20. The computed alpha is used to determine the maximum usage of the flow:

max_usage = alpha / (1 + alpha) * Free_Buffer

devlink sb port pool show - display port-pool combinations and threshold for each
DEV/PORT_INDEX
- specifies the devlink port.
pool
POOL_INDEX

pool index.

devlink sb port pool set - set port-pool threshold
DEV/PORT_INDEX
- specifies the devlink port.
pool
POOL_INDEX

pool index.

th THRESHOLD

threshold value. Type of the value is either Bytes or "to_alpha", depends on thtype set for the pool.

devlink sb tc bind show - display port-TC to pool bindings and threshold for each
DEV/PORT_INDEX
- specifies the devlink port.
tc
TC_INDEX

index of either ingress or egress TC, usually in range 0 to 8 (depends on device).

type { ingress | egress }

TC type.

devlink sb tc bind set - set port-TC to pool binding with specified threshold
DEV/PORT_INDEX
- specifies the devlink port.
tc
TC_INDEX

index of either ingress or egress TC, usually in range 0 to 8 (depends on device).

type { ingress | egress }

TC type.

pool POOL_INDEX

index of pool to bind this to.

th THRESHOLD

threshold value. Type of the value is either Bytes or "to_alpha", depends on thtype set for the pool.

devlink sb occupancy show - display shared buffer occupancy values for device or port
This command is used to browse shared buffer occupancy values. Values are showed for every port-pool combination as well as for all port-TC combinations (with pool this port-TC is bound to). Format of value is:

current_value/max_value

Note that before showing values, one has to issue occupancy snapshot command first.

DEV - specifies the devlink device to show occupancy values for.

DEV/PORT_INDEX - specifies the devlink port to show occupancy values for.

devlink sb occupancy snapshot - take occupancy snapshot of shared buffer for device
This command is used to take a snapshot of shared buffer occupancy values. After that, the values can be showed using occupancy show command.

DEV - specifies the devlink device to take occupancy snapshot on.

devlink sb occupancy clearmax - clear occupancy watermarks of shared buffer for device
This command is used to reset maximal occupancy values reached for whole device. Note that before browsing reset values, one has to issue occupancy snapshot command.

DEV - specifies the devlink device to clear occupancy watermarks on.

EXAMPLES

devlink sb show

List available share buffers.

devlink sb pool show

List available pools and their config.

devlink sb port pool show pci/0000:03:00.0/1 pool 0

Show port-pool setup for specified port and pool.

sudo devlink sb port pool set pci/0000:03:00.0/1 pool 0 th 15

Change threshold for port specified port and pool.

devlink sb tc bind show pci/0000:03:00.0/1 tc 0 type ingress

Show pool binding and threshold for specified port and TC.

sudo devlink sb tc bind set pci/0000:03:00.0/1 tc 0 type ingress pool 0 th 9

Set pool binding and threshold for specified port and TC.

sudo devlink sb occupancy snapshot pci/0000:03:00.0

Make a snapshot of occupancy of shared buffer for specified devlink device.

devlink sb occupancy show pci/0000:03:00.0/1

Show occupancy for specified port from the snapshot.

sudo devlink sb occupancy clearmax pci/0000:03:00.0

Clear watermarks for shared buffer of specified devlink device.
