Thanks for that.

Apart from the above, I have come across few other issues as well and had some
temporary fixes to the branch here[0]. This is encountered while trying to get the
resctrl fs mounted and attempted a cqm test run using resctrl_tests tool. 

The fixes may not be proper ones, but I think it will give you an idea. Please take a
look and let me know your thoughts.

Thanks,
Shameer

Thanks! I haven't run that on the model yet as I want it to get the monitors working first.

If you are seeing bugs in that monitor code, beware you're the only person to ever run it!

{,!} exposed_mon_capable, yup that's a typo.

the evt_list being uninitialised is because that code has never run, as noted in the
KNOWN_ISSUES, (The model doesn't expose have any of the mpam counters...)

Issues around component->resource mapping will disappear as I've re-written all that to
fix issues around picking the same resource twice.


The domid bitfield not being big enough for the width of the cacheinfo id field looks like
a bug in the existing resctrl code. Could you spin that as a patch against mainline?

It won't affect any x86 system, but I don't want to 'fix' anything as part of the mpam
support.

We almost certainly need to compress the cache-id numbers down to {0,1,2} if only so we
haven't filled all the exposed bits on day-1. (so it might not matter for arm64 either...)


Thanks,

James

Yes it could be a bug. But I am not sure about the assumption on x86 platforms with
respect to cache id width. Also any need to consider 32 bit systems at all or not.

Does that mean the cache id width on x86 will never be >14 bits?

That will be nice if we can compress it like that. I think we can leave the fix for now
and come up with a solution when things gets really going.

Mean time I am trying to probe memory controller as well on our system and it looks
like there are still issues. I will debug and update if it really is a problem. Please
let me know if you have any plans to update the branch so that I can try the latest.

Shameer

I have no idea. Today they're 0,1,2, so its unlikely?, but Documentation/x86/resctrl.rst's
"Cache IDs" section says "it isn't guaranteed to be a contiguous sequence", so maybe?

The problem is 'struct cacheinfo's id field is an int, its exposed via sysfs as an int,
but resctrl packs it into a smaller size. That's going to bite one day, it would be good
to fix it now we know its a problem.

Typo in the MBA picking code? Should be:
| if (!mpam_has_feature(mpam_feat_mbw_part, class->features) &&
|     !mpam_has_feature(mpam_feat_mbw_max, class->features)) {

It can do something useful with either of those features, but the (!part || !max)
previously forced it to have both.

(This still doesn't work on the model as its describing a 0-bit bitmap MBW_PART)

I hope to push a new version by the end of June. (whoosh! There goes June).
http://www.linux-arm.org/git?p=linux-jm.git;a=shortlog;h=refs/heads/mpam/snapshot/jun

The changes in there are to avoid the known-issues when the same 'thing' is picked as both
L3 resource and the MBA resource.

I think the risk of sleeping-while-atomic if not all mpam:devices are accessible from all
CPUs in the resctrl:domain is my next highest priority issue...


Thanks,

James

I think what happens on our hardware is, the MBA reports PMG_MAX = 0 and that
upsets mpam_pmg_bits() -->ilog2(). I am not entirely sure whether PMG_MAX= 0 is
allowed as per spec when the resource reports HAS_MSMON =1. But hasn't found
anything in spec that forbids this as the filter is a combination of PRATID:PMG.

I have a temp hack here to keep it going,

Thanks for that. I am using this now. (And I see a more recent one mpam/5.3-tmp
now. Has anything changed other than rebase?)

Now with the above fix for PMG_MAX=0, I am hitting another issue.
mount -t resctrl resctrl /sys/fs/resctrl fails with "File exists" error.

Debugging points to,
rdt_get_tree() 
  mkdir_mondata_all()
    mkdir_mondata_subdir_alldom()
      mkdir_mondata_subdir() 
        mon_addfile()

It looks like r->evt_list gets corrupted somehow and has duplicate entries. I haven’t
gone into the bottom of this issue, but please let me know if you have any idea.

Cheers,
Shameer

I had few dirty hacks[1] to fix the above and some other issues found, so that it
detects both L3 and MB on our platforms. Now able to mount the resctrl fs
with both L3 and MBA resource. But full verification is still pending.

Between, just thought of checking with you, is there any plan to resume/revive the
MPAM support upstream[2] anytime soon? Appreciate if you could share your plan
on this.

Thanks,
Shameer
