[Qemu-devel] [PATCH V13 00/13] Add support for binding guest numa nodes

From: Wanlong Gao
Subject: [Qemu-devel] [PATCH V13 00/13] Add support for binding guest numa nodes to host numa nodes
Date: Tue, 17 Sep 2013 11:16:12 +0800

As you know, QEMU can't direct it's memory allocation now, this may cause
guest cross node access performance regression.
And, the worse thing is that if PCI-passthrough is used,
direct-attached-device uses DMA transfer between device and qemu process.
All pages of the guest will be pinned by get_user_pages().

      => kvm_iommu_map_memslots()
        => kvm_iommu_map_pages()
           => kvm_pin_pages()

So, with direct-attached-device, all guest page's page count will be +1 and
any page migration will not work. AutoNUMA won't too.

So, we should set the guest nodes memory allocation policy before
the pages are really mapped.

According to this patch set, we are able to set guest nodes memory policy
like following:

 -numa node,nodeid=0,cpus=0, \
 -numa mem,size=1024M,policy=membind,host-nodes=0-1 \
 -numa node,nodeid=1,cpus=1 \
 -numa mem,size=1024M,policy=interleave,host-nodes=1

This supports 
like format.

Also add "set-mem-policy" QMP and hmp command to set memory policy.

And add a QMP command "query-numa" to show numa info through
this API.

And convert the "info numa" monitor command to use this
QMP command "query-numa".

    change to use QemuOpts in numa options (Paolo)
    handle Error in mpol parser (Paolo)
    change qmp command format to mem-policy=membind,mem-hostnode=0-1 like 
    also handle Error in cpus parser (5/10)
    split out common parser from cpus and hostnode parser (Bandan 6/10)
    rebase to request for comments
    use OptVisitor and split -numa option (Paolo)
     - s/set-mpol/set-mem-policy (Andreas)
     - s/mem-policy/policy
     - s/mem-hostnode/host-nodes
    fix hmp command process after error (Luiz)
    add qmp command query-numa and convert info numa to it (Luiz)
    remove tabs in json file (Laszlo, Paolo)
    add back "-numa node,mem=xxx" as legacy (Paolo)
    change cpus and host-nodes to array (Laszlo, Eric)
    change "nodeid" to "uint16"
    add NumaMemPolicy enum type (Eric)
    rebased on Laszlo's "OptsVisitor: support / flatten integer ranges for 
repeating options" patch set, thanks for Laszlo's help
    change UInt16 to uint16 (Laszlo)
    fix a typo in adding qmp command set-mem-policy
    rebase to current master with Laszlo's V2 of OptsVisitor patch set
    fix an adding white space line error
    rebase to current master
    check if total numa memory size is equal to ram_size (Paolo)
    add comments to the OptsVisitor stuff in qapi-schema.json (Eric, Laszlo)
    replace the use of numa_num_configured_nodes() (Andrew)
    avoid abusing the fact i==nodeid (Andrew)
    rebase to current master
    remove libnuma (Andrew)
    MAX_NODES=64 -> MAX_NODES=128 since libnuma selected 128 (Andrew)
    use MAX_NODES instead of MAX_CPUMASK_BITS for host_mem bitmap (Andrew)
    remove a useless clear_bit() operation (Andrew)
    rebase to current master
    fix "maxnode" argument of mbind(2)
    rebase to current master
    split patch 02/11 of V11 (Eduardo)
    add some max value check (Eduardo)
    split MAX_NODES change patch (Eduardo)
    rebase to current master
    thanks for Luiz's review (Luiz)
    doc hmp command set-mem-policy (Luiz)
    rename: NUMAInfo -> NUMANode (Luiz)

*I hope this can catch up the train of 1.7.*
