IPSec IPv4 RoutingΒΆ

Following sections include Throughput Speedup Analysis for VPP multi- core multi-thread configurations with no Hyper-Threading, specifically for tested 2t2c (2threads, 2cores) and 4t4c scenarios. 1t1c throughput results are used as a reference for reported speedup ratio. VPP IPSec encryption is accelerated using DPDK cryptodev library driving Intel Quick Assist (QAT) crypto PCIe hardware cards. Performance is reported for VPP running in multiple configurations of VPP worker thread(s), a.k.a. VPP data plane thread(s), and their physical CPU core(s) placement.

CSIT source code for the test cases used for plots can be found in CSIT git repository.
