API version mismatch error for intel XL710 Sriov when running multiple Pktgen DPDK in parallel for same PF.

Hello All,

 

We are trying run Pktgen DPDK using intel XL710 in Sriov mode but facing an error.

 

Setup:

Openstack . Host A and B contain Intel XL 710 card in back to back mode.

NIC: Intel XL710

 

Driver info for PCI cards in Host:

ethtool -i ens1f0

driver: i40e

version: 1.4.25

firmware-version: 6.01 0x800036ea 1.1861.0

expansion-rom-version:

bus-info: 0000:81:00.0

supports-statistics: yes

supports-test: yes

supports-eeprom-access: yes

supports-register-dump: yes

supports-priv-flags: yes

 

Sriov driver in VM:

             driver: iavf

version: 3.7.61.20

firmware-version: N/A

expansion-rom-version:

bus-info: 0000:00:04.0

supports-statistics: yes

supports-test: no

supports-eeprom-access: no

supports-register-dump: no

supports-priv-flags: no

 

DPDK Version: 18.11.1

Pktgen Version: 3.7.1

 

Test scenario:

 

  1. We are deploying multiple VMs in host A and B and doing Sriov passthrough.
  2. Each VM contain a Sriov port from the same PF.
  3. From both end Pktgen DPDK is running inside the VMs in parallel.
  4. VMs in Host A are the sender and in Host B are receiver and are paired one to one i.e, VM0 in host A will send packets to VM0 in Host B and so on.

 

Problem:

  1. When we are running Pktgen DPDK in multiple VMs in parallel for say if we deploy 5 instances each in Host A and Host B then in some of the instances we are getting error:
  2. i40evf_check_api_version(): PF/VF API version mismatch:(0.0)-(1.1)

i40evf_init_vf(): check_api version failed

EAL: Requested device 0000:00:04.0 cannot be used

  1. From the kernel log in the host machine we get the following error of the faulty VMs:
  2. 0000:81:00.0: Invalid message from VF 3, opcode 28, len 0

i40e 0000:81:00.0: Invalid message from VF 4, opcode 28, len 0

i40e 0000:81:00.0: VF 4 failed opcode 14, error: -5

i40e 0000:81:00.0: VF 3 failed opcode 14, error: -5

 

The Above problem does not repeat if we are running only one DPDK pktgen i.e deploying only 1 VM in host A and host B.

 

Could someone pls help me please regarding the issue.

 

Thanks,

Anand

Hello AGupt112,

As much as I would like to help you, you may need to consult with the group who sold you the intel ethernet adapter and the PKTgen DPDK.

Thank you for your understanding regarding this.
