When a packet is received, the hardware places the received data directly into the pbuf’s data payload area. Retrieved from ” http: 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. 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. The EMAC driver and peripheral can’t send this data directly via DMA due to architecture or speed restrictions , so the data needs to be relocated to an area of memory that it can be sent from. 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.

You may even turn off structure-packing for better performance, but this is not thoroughly tested, yet, so make sure you test it! When a packet is received, the hardware places the received data directly into the pbuf’s data payload area.

The driver will allocate packets with maximum packet size without any chaining. Once the EMAC transfers the buffers, the pbuf s will be de-allocated by the driver.

This may waste memory, but pools are way faster than a heap! It should be noted that the payload for the packet in a pbuf must always be non-chained contiguous for receive. This allows the driver to DMA a packet consisting of multiple pbufs e.

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. Options are only listed here if they must be changed from their default values in opt. 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 the bounce buffer support is not enabled and a non-usable buffer is detected, the driver will raise an exception. 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.

LWIP buffer management

Try to prevent sending small chunks of data waiting for an ACK: Make sure to check your lwipopts. Make sure you do not pass data in smaller chunks than the maximum packet size of your network allows i. This lets the stack calculate the checksum on-the-fly when copying data using memcpy.

If you write small chunks turn off the nagle algorithm see wikipedia for more info! Architecture design Edit Favour big-endian systems over little-endian systems if you have the choice since network byte order is big-endian, so conversion can be omitted One bottle neck of the system is the ethernet MAC driver called “netif-driver” with lwIP: Sign In Don’t have an account?

lwIP: Zero-copy RX

The driver will attetmpt to allocate and requeue a new pbuf for the descriptor before returning the received packet. 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. 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.

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. Having chosen the IP- protocol, you have to decide how your application passes data over the network:.

If, for your application, one direction is more important than the other one, make sure this direction is preferred in high load situations! 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! Retrieved from ” http: 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.

Zeero buffers also use less memory for data storage, as bounce buffers are not needed between the LWIP pbufs and the ethernet DMA buffers. In contrast to tuning for low code size, many users want to tune lwIP for maximum throughput.

When using a version later than 1. This occurs automatically inside the driver if the bounce buffer support is enabled.

Maximizing throughput

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. This section gives a brief overview of how buffers are managed in the driver and the LWIP applications. If the hardware allows, make sure the driver supports scatter-gather.
