Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 451053
s2io tx_fifo_num doesn't spread interrupt loads
Last modified: 2014-09-30 19:44:13 EDT
the s2io driver allows you to create up to 8 tx_fifo's. However, all interrupts
are observed to go a single queue (#1). In the -29 version of the driver
multiqueue support was added. It appears this would enable spreading interrupts
across all tx_fifo's.
Benchmarking for small packet sizes is CPU bound; allowing multiple CPUs to
assist in interrupt processing would improve the problem.
A test kernel build with s2io backported from current upstream is now
I also uploaded it to a publicly accessible location:
Could you please test it?
