This chapter provides a simple description of the basic requirements for a low-level, hardware specific, lwIP-direct ethernet lwip zero copy. I would think that an incredibly useful and powerful abstraction.

If I can wrap a file with a block of memory via mmap, why couldn't I do the reverse? That's lwip zero copy to say this work doesn't have value, but still Zero-copy networking. In theory, it would be possible to configure the interface to put packets from a specific source address and port and to a specific destination address and port into a specific buffer.

Example with LWIP +Zero-copy ethernet driver - FreeRTOS

lwip zero copy The article mentions that such fancy interfaces might exist. This works perfectly well, with excellent reliability, and you can get small packets per second out of it, when you issue the HTTP GET for the next request within the receive callback of the packet-in-hand.

My conclusion is that the Ethernet driver, and lwIP port on mbed are in good shape for speed and lwip zero copy, but the net services layer does not reach the same standard. My vote would go to the suggestion from Miro in the first post: to finish the driver to permit Integration of lwIP and QP, so that we can develop lwip zero copy hard real-time solutions. Non-critical applications can use Net Services as-is, and the raw API method can be used for high-reliability.

Lwip-devel - Zero Copy support

STM32 MAC driver optimization This forum is dedicated to feedback, discussions about ongoing or future developments, ideas and suggestions regarding the ChibiOS projects are welcome. This section gives a brief overview of how buffers are managed in the driver and the LWIP applications. The main idea was discussed already in LwIP forum: you should set pbuf size to maximum packet size, preallocate some pbufs for MAC buffers and replace any taken buffer with a new preallocated pbuf. 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. This ensures that the individual driver implementation can access the necessary state as would lwip zero copy the case for a single driver configuration.

Both with EDK There is definitely an improvement in the performance numbers for the Socket mode, although the performance numbers for the Raw mode remain the same. Classic List Threaded. TX for TCP from the core to the driver is not fully implemented lwip zero copy asynchronous drivers.

Lwip zero copy I agree that having this type of function in kernel would be good, I believe the benefits of it are small compared to what we have now. Let me explain.

There is 2 options: either the chunk of data you expect is small in size or it is big. In case it is small.

It is likely fit one packet or a few packets with a small interval between them. In this case by the time the program is woken up tailing packets have already arrived. Options are lwip zero copy listed here if they must be changed from their default values in opt.

Zero-copy buffers lwip zero copy improve system performance over copied buffers when transferring large amounts of ethernet data. 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.
