dnsdist: Cache sharding, recvmmsg and CPU pinning support #5576

merged 10 commits into from Sep 27, 2017


Copy link

@rgacogne rgacogne commented Aug 2, 2017

Short description

  • Optionally divide the packet cache into several shards, each protected by its own lock, to reduce lock contention
  • Add support for recvmmsg(), sendmmsg() and accept4() when available to reduce the number of system calls
  • Add support for pinning UDP listener threads to specific CPU cores
  • Several small optimizations including not using errno when we don't have to and not generating a UUID if we don't need it

A large part of the PR is just moving code around to be able to process queries one-by-one (with recvmsg(), the default) or in batch (with recvmmsg()).


I have:

  • read the document
  • compiled and tested this code
  • included documentation (including possible behaviour changes)
  • documented the code
  • added or modified regression test(s)
  • added or modified unit test(s)
