Subject: Re: [PATCH net-next v3 0/6] Add adaptive interrupt coalescing

From: Claudiu Manoil <>
Date: Tue, 21 Jul 2020 10:55:16 +0300

> Apart from some related cleanup patches, this set
> introduces in a straightforward way the support needed
> to enable and configure interrupt coalescing for ENETC.
> Patch 5 introduces the support needed for configuring the
> interrupt coalescing parameters and for switching between
> moderated (int. coalescing) and per-packet interrupt modes.
> When interrupt coalescing is enabled the Rx/Tx time
> thresholds are configurable, packet thresholds are fixed.
> To make this work reliably, patch 5 uses the traffic
> pause procedure introduced in patch 2.
> Patch 6 adds DIM (Dynamic Interrupt Moderation) to implement
> adaptive coalescing based on time thresholds, for the Rx 'channel'.
> On the Tx side a default optimal value is used instead, optimized for
> TCP traffic over 1G and 2.5G links.  This default 'optimal' value can
> be overridden anytime via 'ethtool -C tx-usecs'.
> netperf -t TCP_MAERTS measurements show a significant CPU load
> reduction correlated w/ reduced interrupt rates. For the
> measurement results refer to the comments in patch 6.
> v2: Replaced Tx DIM with predefined optimal value, giving
> better results. This was also suggested by Jakub (cc).
> Switched order of patches 4 and 5, for better grouping.
> v3: minor cleanup/improvements

Series applied, thank you.
