PicOS OVS Supports qos/queue

1, PicOS OVS support configure qos scheduler type: SP, RR, WRR, WFQ

2, In the PicOS switch, there are 7 queues in ASIC with priority 0~7 (In the current version, P3922/P3780/3920, only support queues 0~3). Queue 7 being the highest priority and queue 0 being the lowest priority. 

 

Command:

Add qos

ovs-vsctl -- set port <interface name> qos=@<qos name1> -- --id=@<qos name1> create qos type=<scheduler type> queues:<queue value1>=@<queue name1> [queues:<queue value2>=@<queue name2>] -- --id=@<queue name1> create queue other-config:min-rate=<bps> other-config:max-rate=<bps> other-config:weight=<weight> [-- --id=@<queue name2> create queue other-config:min-rate=<bps> other-config:max-rate=<bps> other-config:weight=<weight>]

List qos and queue table

ovs-vsctl list qos
ovs-vsctl list queue

Check qos config in interface

ovs-appctl qos/show <interface>
ovs-ofctl queue-get-config br0 [port]

Check queue counter

ovs-ofctl queue-stats <bridge> [port]

Clear queue and qos

ovs-vsctl clear port <interface> qos
ovs-vsctl --all destroy qos 
ovs-vsctl --all destroy queue      

 

 SP

In SP ( short for Strict Priority) mode.

1, The SP queue has priority to be scheduled when work with others queue whether the queue priority is high or not.

2, If different flows from different input ports and enter the different queue on the one output port, and low priority queue has congestion, this time maybe appear Head-of-line blocking.

Example:

Flow (dl_src is 22:11:11:11:11:11) will be forwarded to queue 0 of port 3

Flow (dl_src is 22:11:11:11:11:12) will be forwarded to queue 7 of port 3.
Min and max rate of queue 0 and queue 7 is set as 10M

root@PicOS-OVS# ovs-ofctl del-flows br0
root@PicOS-OVS# ovs-ofctl add-flow br0 in_port=1,dl_src=22:11:11:11:11:11,actions=set_queue:0,output=3 
root@PicOS-OVS# ovs-ofctl add-flow br0 in_port=2,dl_src=22:11:11:11:11:12,actions=set_queue:7,output=3
root@PicOS-OVS# ovs-vsctl -- set port ge-1/1/3 qos=@newqos -- --id=@newqos create qos type=PRONTO_STRICT queues:0=@newqueue queues:7=@newqueue1 -- --id=@newqueue create queue other-config:min-rate=10000000 other-config:max-rate=10000000 -- --id=@newqueue1 create queue other-config:min-rate=10000000 other-config:max-rate=10000000

 

RR

RR(short for   Round Robin) is a scheduler mode of Qos. It uses a round robin scheduling algorithm between the queues and can avoid the lowest priority queues not being serviced for long time when traffic congestion happens.

Example:

Add qos on interface te-1/1/5, and configure queue2 and queue3

ovs-vsctl -- set port te-1/1/5 qos=@newqos -- --id=@newqos create qos type=PRONTO_ROUND_ROBIN queues:2=@newqueue queues:3=@newqueue1 -- --id=@newqueue create queue other-config:min-rate=100000000 other-config:max-rate=200000000 -- --id=@newqueue1 create queue other-config:min-rate=150000000 other-config:max-rate=400000000

 

WRR

WRR(short for  Weighted Round Robin)is a scheduler mode of Qos. It uses a round robin scheduling algorithm between the queues and can avoid the lowest priority queues not being serviced for long time when traffic congestion happens. When you use WRR scheduling mode, you can define your own weighted value for each queue to  distribute different service time for queue.Generaly,greater the weight, longer the serviced time. 

Example:

1.1  Create a qos and add two queues (0 and 3)to qos for port te-1/1/3

root@PicOS-OVS$ovs-vsctl -- set port te-1/1/3 qos=@newqos -- --id=@newqos create qos type=PRONTO_WEIGHTED_ROUND_ROBIN queues:0=@newqueue queues:3=@newqueue1 -- --id=@newqueue create queue other-config=min-rate=200000000,weight=3  -- --id=@newqueue1 create queue other-config=min-rate=200000000,weight=3

Total 3 flows in HW.
root@PicOS-OVS$
 

notice: queue 0 is the default queue,the HW flow don't display it.


1.3 Result

Firstly,both the queue 0 and queue 7  should provides minimum bandwidth guarantee (200M)  during congestion, then each queue distribute the remaining packets according the queue weight .

root@PicOS-OVS$


9 Remove qos

root@PicOS-OVS$ovs-vsctl clear port te-1/1/3 qos         
root@PicOS-OVS$ovs-vsctl --all destroy qos

WFQ

The full name of WFQ is Weighted Fair Queuing. It is similar to WRR. The only difference between WFQ and WRR is that the scheduling mode in WRR is by packets but in WFQ is by bytes.

Example

ovs-vsctl -- set port te-1/1/4 qos=@newqos -- --id=@newqos create qos type=PRONTO_WEIGHTED_FAIR_QUEUING queues:1=@newqueue queues:7=@newqueue1 -- --id=@newqueue create queue
other-config=min-rate=300000000,weight=5  -- --id=@newqueue1 create queue other-config=min-rate=100000000,weight=5
