[edk2-devel] [PATCH] BaseTools: Optimize GenerateByteArrayValue and CollectPlatformGuids APIs
Posted by Ashraf Ali S 1 month, 1 week ago
During the Incremental build GenerateByteArrayValue used to generate the
ByteArrayValue even when there is no change in the PCD/VPDs. which is
time consuming API based on the number of PCD/VPDs and SKU IDs.

The optimization is that GenerateByteArrayValue is used to store the
PcdRecordList in a JSON file for each of the arch. and during the
Incremental build this API will check if there is any change in the PCD
/VPDs then rest of the flow remains the same. if there is no change then
it will return the provious build data.

Flow:
during the 1st build PcdRecordList.json is not exists, PcdRecordList
will be dumped to json file. and it will copy the output.txt as well.
Note: as the output.txt are different for different Arch, so it will be
stored in the Arch folder.
During the Incremental build check if there is any change in PCD/VPD.
if there is a change in VPD/PCD then recreate the PcdRecordList.json.
and rest of the flow remains same.
if there is no change in VPD/PCD read the output.txt and return the data

Re: [edk2-devel] [PATCH] BaseTools: Optimize GenerateByteArrayValue and CollectPlatformGuids APIs
Posted by Michael D Kinney 1 month, 1 week ago
Hi Ashraf,

What is captured in the file?

What PCD/VPD changes will invalidate the cache?  Just the number and 
type of PCD/VPD elements or their default values/sizes?

How was this tested?  Were all conditions that invalidate the cache
tested?  I ask because incremental build is a very important feature
and if there is any logic error in the cache management of a file like
this, it will cause unexpected behavior and developers will not trust
incremental builds.

Mike

Re: [edk2-devel] [PATCH] BaseTools: Optimize GenerateByteArrayValue and CollectPlatformGuids APIs
Posted by Ashraf Ali S 1 month ago
Hi., @Kinney, Michael D

The main API which is modified in this Patch is GenerateByteArrayValue.

This API is used to return the list of SKUID.TokenSpaceGuid.VpdName|VPD STRUCT|Binary Data which will be stored in Output.txt
Example: SAMPLESKUID.STANDARD.gEfiMdePkgTokenSpaceGuid.SampleVpd|SAMPLE_STRUCT[]|{0x01,0x01,0x05,0x09,0x02}

This VPD/PCD is coming from either the DEC file or the DSC file.

GenerateByteArrayValue API is used to create the PcdValueInit.exe and it's equivalent C and Make File.

When there is no change in DEC or DSC VPD/PCD still it used to do the same process again in the incremental build which is time consuming.
In my project this API is used to take 3min of time with High end server (64Threads) and 3.5Min in Laptop (16 threads with performance mode enabled) only for GenerateByteArrayValue API.

This  patch will check if there are any change in the DEC/DSC VPDs/PCDs2, if there is any change in VPD the current flow is not affect. (it will create the PcdRecordList.json and copy Output.txt for Arch folder with the project. Ex: Build\{Project}Pkg\DEBUG_VS2019\PcdValueInit\{IA32/X64/Any}\PcdRecordList.json and Build\{Project}Pkg\DEBUG_VS2019\PcdValueInit\{IA32/X64/Any}\Output.txt)
If there is no change the DSC/DEC VPDs it will read the data from Output.txt and return the same data. (we will compare the Input structure and PcdRecordList.json) if there is any mismatch then it there change in VPDs if not then no change in VPDs).

Unit testing from my side as follows:
* Build the Firmware.
	* PcdRecordList.json and Output.txt will be created based on the Arch.
* Build the Firmware again without any change.
	* It will read the Output.txt and return the data. (it will match Input PCD/VPD list and compare with existing PcdRecordList.json)
	* I verified the return length and content GenerateByteArrayValue (it's same with and without my changes)
* Build the Firmware again my modifying the VPDs in DSC file
	* Change in VPDs, it will regenerate PcdRecordList.json file
	*  it will create the Exe file and Output.txt
	* New Output.txt will be copied to above path.
* Build the Firmware again by modifying the VPDs in DEC file.
	* Change in VPDs, it will regenerate PcdRecordList.json file
	*  it will create the Exe file and Output.txt
	* New Output.txt will be copied to above path.
* Build the Firmware again without modifying the code.
	* It will read the Output.txt and return the data.
	* I verified the return length and content GenerateByteArrayValue (it's same with and without my changes)


There is no impact on the Boot/cache.
This patch is used to reduce the incremental build time by checking if the VPDs/PCDs are changed or not, if not changed then it will return the previous stored data.

Thanks.,
S, Ashraf Ali

Subject: RE: [edk2-devel] [PATCH] BaseTools: Optimize GenerateByteArrayValue and CollectPlatformGuids APIs

Hi Ashraf,

What is captured in the file?

What PCD/VPD changes will invalidate the cache?  Just the number and type of PCD/VPD elements or their default values/sizes?

How was this tested?  Were all conditions that invalidate the cache tested?  I ask because incremental build is a very important feature and if there is any logic error in the cache management of a file like this, it will cause unexpected behavior and developers will not trust incremental builds.

Mike

Re: [edk2-devel] [PATCH] BaseTools: Optimize GenerateByteArrayValue and CollectPlatformGuids APIs
Posted by Michael D Kinney 1 month ago
Hi Ashraf,

The PcdValueInit feature is not limited to only PCDs of type VPD.  It is
for any structured PCDs.  Did you test PCDs with all types (e.g. PcdsFixedAtBuild
PcdsPactahbleInModule, PcdsDynamicHii, PcdsDynamicDatabase, PcdsDynamicVpd,
PcdsDynamicExHii, PcdsDynamicExDatabase, PcdsDynamicExVpd)

And did you DSC test cases cover both changes in PCD types and changes in PCD values?

Thanks,

Mike

Re: [edk2-devel] [PATCH] BaseTools: Optimize GenerateByteArrayValue and CollectPlatformGuids APIs
Posted by Feng, Bob C 1 month ago
Hi Ashraf,

Besides DSC, PCD value also comes from the build tool command line option, DEC and INF. This patch looks only check the PCD changes from DSC, it's not cover all the cases. 

Thanks,
Bob

Subject: RE: [edk2-devel] [PATCH] BaseTools: Optimize GenerateByteArrayValue and CollectPlatformGuids APIs

Hi Ashraf,

The PcdValueInit feature is not limited to only PCDs of type VPD.  It is for any structured PCDs.  Did you test PCDs with all types (e.g. PcdsFixedAtBuild PcdsPactahbleInModule, PcdsDynamicHii, PcdsDynamicDatabase, PcdsDynamicVpd, PcdsDynamicExHii, PcdsDynamicExDatabase, PcdsDynamicExVpd)

And did you DSC test cases cover both changes in PCD types and changes in PCD values?

Thanks,

Mike
