[edk2-devel] [PATCH v2] UefiCpuPkg/MpInitLib DXE: Add PCD to control AP status check interval

Posted by Wu, Hao A 1 week ago
REF:https://bugzilla.tianocore.org/show_bug.cgi?id=2627

The commit will introduce a static PCD to specify the periodic interval
for checking the AP status when MP services StartupAllAPs() and
StartupThisAP() are being executed in a non-blocking manner. Or in other
words, specifies the interval for callback function CheckApsStatus().

The purpose is to provide the platform owners with the ability to choose
the proper interval value to trigger CheckApsStatus() according to:
A) The number of processors in the system;
B) How MP services (StartupAllAPs & StartupThisAP) being used.

Setting the PCD to a small value means the AP status check callback will
be trigerred more frequently, it can benefit the performance for the case
when the BSP uses WaitForEvent() or uses CheckEvent() in a loop to wait
for AP(s) to complete the task, especially when the task can be finished
considerably fast on AP(s).

An example is within function CpuFeaturesInitialize() under
UefiCpuPkg/Library/RegisterCpuFeaturesLib/DxeRegisterCpuFeaturesLib.c,
where BSP will perform the same task with APs and requires all the
processors to finish the task before BSP proceeds to its next task.

Setting the PCD to a big value, on the other hand, can reduce the impact
on BSP by the time being consumed in CheckApsStatus(), especially when the
number of processors is huge so that the time consumed in CheckApsStatus()
is not negligible.

For least impact, the default value of the new PCD will be the same with
the current interval value, which is 100 milliseconds.

Unitest done:
OS boot successfully.

Re: [edk2-devel] [PATCH v2] UefiCpuPkg/MpInitLib DXE: Add PCD to control AP status check interval

Posted by Zeng, Star 1 week ago
The code logic is good to me.
Only minor concern, do we really need the PCD to be UINT64 type? :)

Thanks,
Star

Hi Star,

I am thinking the UINT64 type fits with the parameter for the SetTimer()
service in EFI_BOOT_SERVICES when preparing the patch.

If there is concern, I can switch it to other type.

Hao Wu

Got your good point.
For me, UINT32 (FFFFFFFFh = 4294967295d = 4294967.295 second = 71582.78825 minutes ~= 1193.0464708333333333333333333333 hours) should be totally enough.
I do not insist on that if others think UINT64 is ok.

Thanks,
Star

Re: [edk2-devel] [PATCH v2] UefiCpuPkg/MpInitLib DXE: Add PCD to control AP status check interval

Posted by Ni, Ray 1 week ago
From the perspective of PCD producer, I agree with Star to use UINT32.
Internal implementation can be changed to use other polling methods which don't require UINT64 data type.

Re: [edk2-devel] [PATCH v2] UefiCpuPkg/MpInitLib DXE: Add PCD to control AP status check interval

Posted by Michael D Kinney 1 week ago
How was the milliseconds units selected?

We have other PCDs that provide timer intervals in 
100ns unit and my microseconds.  I would prefer we
be consistent so platform developers do not have
to keep track of so many different units for time
intervals.

Re: [edk2-devel] [PATCH v2] UefiCpuPkg/MpInitLib DXE: Add PCD to control AP status check interval

I suggested msecs for continuity with the pre-patch unit:

Sounds OK to me.

What's more: your suggestion points at a bug in the v2 patch. The patch replaces the argument for the gBS->SetTimer() service's "TriggerTime" parameter, namely:

   Status = gBS->SetTimer (
                   mCheckAllApsEvent,
                   TimerPeriodic,
-                  AP_CHECK_INTERVAL
+                  PcdGet64 (PcdCpuApStatusCheckInterval)
                   );

But that parameter is taken in units of 100ns, per spec.

Pre-patch, AP_CHECK_INTERVAL takes that into account:

#define EFI_TIMER_PERIOD_MILLISECONDS(Milliseconds) MultU64x32((UINT64)(Milliseconds), 10000)

but post-patch, the PCD does not:

+  gUefiCpuPkgTokenSpaceGuid.PcdCpuApStatusCheckInterval|100|UINT64|0x0000001E

So this patch would shorten the interval by a divisor of 10000 at once, namely from (100 * 10000) * 100ns, to 100 * 100ns.

The fix is to update the PCD comments according to your remark, and to change the default PCD value to (100 * 10000) = 1000,000.

Thanks,
Laszlo

Hello Laszlo,

Thanks for the catch. I will address the bug introduced in the V2 patch.

One thing to confirm, as Ray mentioned that the UefiCpuPkg uses microseconds(us)
as unit for timeout/interval values, so how about using the below definition
for the proposed PCD:

gUefiCpuPkgTokenSpaceGuid.PcdCpuApStatusCheckIntervalInMicroseconds|100000|UINT32|0x0000001E

And in the C code use the macro 'EFI_TIMER_PERIOD_MICROSECONDS' to convert the
PCD value to the 'SetTimer' parameter?

Best Regards,
Hao Wu

Re: [edk2-devel] [PATCH v2] UefiCpuPkg/MpInitLib DXE: Add PCD to control AP status check interval

Posted by Ni, Ray 1 week ago
Mike, Hao,
I searched all edk2 code using regex pattern "Pcd.*Timeout.*", "Pcd.*Timer.*", "Pcd.*Delay.*"
and found below PCDs:

gEfiMdePkgTokenSpaceGuid.PcdSpinLockTimeout: in tick unit depending on the TimerLib used
gEfiMdePkgTokenSpaceGuid.PcdUsbTransferTimeoutValue: in 1ms unit
gPcAtChipsetPkgTokenSpaceGuid.PcdHpetDefaultTimerPeriod: in 100ns unit

gEfiMdeModulePkgTokenSpaceGuid.PcdSataSpinUpDelayInSecForRecoveryPath: in 1s unit
gUefiCpuPkgTokenSpaceGuid.PcdCpuInitIpiDelayInMicroSeconds: in 1us unit
gUefiCpuPkgTokenSpaceGuid.PcdCpuSmmApSyncTimeout: in 1us unit
gEfiSourceLevelDebugPkgTokenSpaceGuid.PcdUsbXhciDebugDetectTimeout: in 1us unit

1 uses timer ticks as unit.
1 uses as unit.
1 uses ms as unit.
3 use us as unit.
1 uses 100ns as unit.

UefiCpuPkg uses us consistently as the unit.
So how about using us for this PCD as well?
And don't forget to name the PCD as "PcdCpuApStatusCheckIntervalInMicroSeconds" so developers who set the PCD can be aware by reading the name.

Thanks,
Ray
