[edk2-devel] [PATCH v4] 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.

The type of the PCD is UINT32, which means the maximum possible interval
value can be set to:
4,294,967,295 microseconds = 4,295 seconds = 71.58 minutes = 1.19 hours
which should be sufficient for usage.

For least impact, the default value of the new PCD will be the same with
the current interval value. It will be set to 100,000 microseconds, which
is 100 milliseconds.

Unitest done:
A) OS boot successfully;
B) Use debug message to confirm the 'TriggerTime' parameter for the
   'SetTimer' service is the same before & after this patch.

Notes:
 V4
 Avoiding introducing a local variable in InitMpGlobalData().

 V3
 A) Use microseconds, instead of milliseconds as the interval unit;
 B) Use UINT32, instead of UINT64, for the PCD type;
 C) Address the bug that incorrect 'TriggerTime' parameter was passed into
    the 'SetTimer' service call in V2 patch

 V2
 Introduce a PCD to specify the AP status check interval.

For this patch:

Reviewed-by: Laszlo Ersek <lersek@redhat.com>

I'm happy if this patch is pushed, as-is.

Independently, I have found that MpInitLib, despite using several PCDs,
does not list the PcdLib class in the [LibraryClasses] section, and
never #include's <Library/PcdLib.h>  either.

(The [LibraryClasses] observation applies to both INF files, that is,
PEI and DXE alike.)

Things happen to work in practice because both the #include and the lib
class dependency must be inherited from other headers / lib instances.
But it would be prudent to spell out the PcdLib dependency, especially
because some of the subject PCDs are used with the dynamic access
method, in practice (for example by OvmfPkg) -- meaning that the actual
PCD library APIs are exercised.

Hao, can you post a followup patch for that, or do you prefer that we
only enter a BZ ticket at the moment?

Thanks!
Laszlo

I have filed a BZ tracker for the issue you mentioned:
https://bugzilla.tianocore.org/show_bug.cgi?id=2632

Let us address this in a separate series.

Re: [edk2-devel] [PATCH v4] UefiCpuPkg/MpInitLib DXE: Add PCD to control AP status check interval

> 
> 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.
> 
> The type of the PCD is UINT32, which means the maximum possible interval
> value can be set to:
> 4,294,967,295 microseconds = 4,295 seconds = 71.58 minutes = 1.19 hours
> which should be sufficient for usage.
> 
> For least impact, the default value of the new PCD will be the same with the
> current interval value. It will be set to 100,000 microseconds, which is 100
> milliseconds.
> 
> Unitest done:
> A) OS boot successfully;
> B) Use debug message to confirm the 'TriggerTime' parameter for the
>    'SetTimer' service is the same before & after this patch.
