      BGP: Improve tx performance during feed/flush · ba2a0760
      Ondřej Zajíček authored
      The prefix hash table in BGP used the same hash function as the rtable.
      When a batch of routes are exported during feed/flush to the BGP, they
      all have similar hash values, so they are all crowded in a few slots in
      the BGP prefix table (which is much smaller - around the size of the
      batch - and uses higher bits from hash values), making it much slower due
      to excessive collisions. Use a different hash function to avoid this.
      Also, increase the batch size to fill 4k BGP packets and increase minimum
      BGP bucket and prefix hash sizes to avoid back and forth resizing during
      This leads to order of magnitude faster flushes (on my test data).

      Fixed a munmap abort bug · 9eec503b
      Maria Matejka authored
      When BIRD was munmapping too many pages, it sometimes aborted, saying
      that munmap failed with "Not enough memory" as the address space was
      getting more and more fragmented.
      There is a workaround in place, simply keeping that page for future use,
      yet it has never been compiled in because I somehow forgot to include
      errno.h. And because I also thought that somebody may have ENOMEM not
      defined (why?!), there was a check which quietly omitted that
      Anyway, ENOMEM is POSIX. It's an utter nonsense to check for its
      existence. If it doesn't exist, something is broken.

      BFD: Add 'strict bind' option · 692055e3
      Ondřej Zajíček authored
      Add BFD protocol option 'strict bind' to use separate listening socket
      for each BFD interface bound to its address instead of using shared
      listening sockets.

      Lib: Update alignment of slabs · edc1a240
      Ondřej Zajíček authored
      Alignment of slabs should be at least sizeof(ptr) to avoid unaligned
      pointers in slab structures. Fixme: Use proper way to choose alignment
      for internal allocators.

      Trie: Fix trie format · 24600c64
      Ondřej Zajíček authored
      After switching to 16-way tries, trie format ignored unaligned / internal
      prefixes and only reported the primary prefix of a trie node.
      Fix trie format by showing internal prefixes based on the 'local' bitmask
      of a node. Also do basic (intra-node) reconstruction of prefix patterns
      by finding common subtrees in 'local' bitmask.
      In future, we could improve that by doing inter-node reconstruction, so
      prefixes entered as one pattern for a subtree (e.g.
      would be reported as such, like with aligned prefixes.

      Nest: Implement locking of prefix tries during walks · 5a89edc6
      Ondřej Zajíček authored
      The prune loop may may rebuild the prefix trie and therefore invalidate
      walk state for asynchronous walks (used in 'show route in' cmd). Fix it
      by adding locking that keeps the old trie in memory until current walks
      are done.
      In future this could be improved by rebuilding trie walk states (by
      lookup for last found prefix) after the prefix trie rebuild.

      Nest: Implement prefix trie pruning · de6318f7
      Ondřej Zajíček authored
      When rtable is pruned and network fib nodes are removed, we also need to
      prune prefix trie. Unfortunately, rebuilding prefix trie takes long time
      (got about 400 ms for 1M networks), so must not be atomic, we have to
      rebuild a new trie while current one is still active. That may require
      some considerable amount of temporary memory, so we do that only if
      we expect significant trie size reduction.

      Trie: Add prefix counter · ba5aec94
      Ondřej Zajíček authored
      Add counter of prefixes stored in trie. Works only for 'restricted' tries
      composed of explicit prefixes (pxlen == l == h), like ones used in rtables.

      BGP: Implement flowspec validation procedure · 1f2eb2ac
      Ondřej Zajíček authored
      Implement flowspec validation procedure as described in RFC 8955 sec. 6
      and RFC 9117. The Validation procedure enforces that only routers in the
      forwarding path for a network can originate flowspec rules for that
      The patch adds new mechanism for tracking inter-table dependencies, which
      is necessary as the flowspec validation depends on IP routes, and flowspec
      rules must be revalidated when best IP routes change.
      The validation procedure is disabled by default and requires that
      relevant IP table uses trie, as it uses interval queries for subnets.

      Nest: Avoid unnecessary net_format() in 'show route' command · 61375bd0
      Ondřej Zajíček authored
      When output of 'show route' command was generated, the net_format() was
      called for each network prematurely, even if the result was not needed.
      Fix the code to call net_format() only when needed. This makes queries
      that process many networks but show only few (e.g. 'show route where ..',
      or 'show route count') much faster (like 5x - 10x faster).

      Nest: Attach prefix trie to rtable for faster LPM and interval queries · 836a87b8
      Ondřej Zajíček authored
      Attach a prefix trie to IP/VPN/ROA tables. Use it for net_route() and
      net_roa_check(). This leads to 3-5x speedups for IPv4 and 5-10x
      speedup for IPv6 of these calls.
       - Rebuild the trie during rt_prune_table()
       - Better way to avoid trie_add_prefix() in net_get() for existing tables
       - Make it configurable (?)

      BGP: Make routing loops silent · 4c6ee53f

      One of previous commits added error logging of invalid routes. This
      also inadvertently caused error logging of route loops, which should
      be ignored silently. Fix that.

      BGP: Use proper class in attribute error messages · 963b2c7c
      Ondřej Zajíček authored
      Most error messages in attribute processing are in rx/decode step and
      these use L_REMOTE log class. But there are few that are in tx/export
      step and these should use L_ERR log class.
      Use tx-specific macro (REJECT()) in tx/export code and rename field
      err_withdraw to err_reject in struct bgp_export_state to ensure that
      appropriate error reporting macros are called in proper contexts.
