LWIP buffer management

In contrast to tuning for low code size, many users want to tune lwIP for maximum throughput. If the bounce buffer support is not enabled and a non-usable buffer is detected, the driver will raise an exception.

This allows the driver to DMA a packet consisting of multiple pbufs e. This may waste memory, but pools are way faster than a heap!

This section gives a brief overview of how buffers are managed in the driver and the LWIP applications. This page wants to give an overview what influences the performance of an ethernet device using lwIP. Options are only listed here if they must be changed from their default values in opt. The driver will chain buffers in the descriptor if needed if a chained pbuf is used and keep a reference of the pbufs that are used for the transfer.

The other big bottleneck is TCP- and UDP- checksum calculation creating checksums when transmitting data, checking checksums when receiving data: Once the pbuf leaves the driver’s functions, it no longer tracks it or it’s buffer, but the original descriptor that was associated with the pbuf is now available for a new pbuf.

Sign In Don’t have an account? Zero-copy buffers also use less memory for data storage, as bounce buffers are not needed between the LWIP pbufs and the ethernet DMA buffers. Try to prevent sending small chunks of data waiting for an ACK: Retrieved from ” http: Zero-copy RX buffers For zero-copy buffers, the initial pbufs needed to receive packets are pre-allocated and assigned to the ethernet controller at the maximum expected packet size.

Make sure you do not pass data in smaller chunks than the maximum packet size of your network allows i.

The EMAC driver and peripheral can’t send this data directly via DMA due to architecture or speed restrictionsso the data needs to be relocated to an area of memory that it can be sent from. If memory is not available for the new pbuf, the descriptor remains free and an attenpt will be made to allocate a new pbuf on the next received packet. zeroo

If the hardware allows, make sure the driver supports scatter-gather. If, for your application, one direction is more important than the other one, make sure this direction is preferred in high load situations! When using a version later than 1. This occurs automatically inside the driver if the bounce buffer support is enabled.

Zero Copy support

The pbuf is then passed to the network layer without an extra copy where it is used by the application or LWIP and then de-allocated once it finishes with the packet. This routine is probably the most critical path regarding throughput in the whole stack, so knowing the architecture well and writing a highly optimized assembler-routine is recommended!

Ocpy a packet is received, the hardware places the received data directly into the pbuf’s data payload area. If the driver detects that a buffer address used for a zero-copy transfer is not usable by the EMAC, it will copy the buffer to a temporary bounce buffer and send it from that buffer instead. You may even turn off structure-packing for better performance, but this is not thoroughly tested, yet, so make sure you test it! Having chosen the IP- protocol, you have to decide how your application passes data over the network:.

If you write small chunks turn off the nagle algorithm see wikipedia for more info!

It should be noted that the zerk for the packet in a pbuf must always be non-chained contiguous for receive. The driver will allocate packets with maximum packet size without any chaining. The driver will attetmpt to allocate and requeue a new pbuf for the descriptor before returning the received packet. This lets the stack calculate the checksum on-the-fly when copying data using memcpy.

Zero-copy buffers can improve system performance over copied buffers when transferring large amounts of ethernet data. Once the EMAC transfers the buffers, the pbuf s will be de-allocated by the driver. For zero-copy buffers, the initial pbufs needed to receive packets are pre-allocated coph assigned to the ethernet controller at the maximum expected packet size.
