Subject: [PATCH 0/5] UDP memory accounting and limitation (take 6)


This is the latest patch set of UDP memory accounting and limitation.

The number of pages for socket buffer is limited up to
/proc/sys/net/ipv4/udp_mem. I removed the minimal limit number
to use the feature from the former patch set (take5). And udp_init()
is introduced to calculate default value.

In addition, I added /proc/sys/net/ipv4/udp_rmem and
/proc/sys/net/ipv4/udp_wmem to be able to allocate minimum buffer to
each socket.

As a result, UDP packet is drooped when the number of pages for
socket buffer is beyond the limit and the socket already consumes
minimum buffer.

Detailed change log is below.

Changelog take 5 -> take 6:

  * removed minimal limit of /proc/sys/net/udp_mem
  * added udp_init() for default value calculation of parameters
  * added /proc/sys/net/udp_rmem and /proc/sys/net/udp_rmem
  * added limitation code to ip_ufo_append_data()
  * improved accounting for receiving packet
  * fixed typos
  * rebased to 2.6.24-rc1

Changelog take 4 -> take 5:

  * removing unnessesary EXPORT_SYMBOLs
  * adding minimal limit of /proc/sys/net/udp_mem
  * bugfix of UDP limit affecting protocol other than UDP
  * introducing __ip_check_max_skb_pages()
  * adding udp_mem usage to Documentation/networking/ip_sysctl.txt
