14:21:40 <mackonstan> #info Yulong, would like to proceed with moving the flow offload functional tests to vpp_device execution once the CVL NICs are installed
14:22:35 <mackonstan> #info Peter, confirmed that CVL NICs got received, and will be installed in vpp_device testbeds in the matter of week (currently delayed by the IPS DPDK VF racing condition issue)
14:22:52 <mackonstan> #topic Physical Infrastructure
14:23:19 <mackonstan> #info FD.io DC move in Apr/May 2021 - completed
14:24:16 <mackonstan> #info Peter, one CLX build/storage machine down due to CLX failure, Ray shipped replacement
14:30:43 <mackonstan> #info Maciek, 3n-hsw testbed decommissioning, see point 7.e. from last week minutes
14:30:52 <mackonstan> #link https://ircbot.wl.linuxfoundation.org/meetings/fdio-csit/2021/fd_io_csit_project_meeting/fdio-csit-fd_io_csit_project_meeting.2021-05-19-13.59.html
14:32:17 <mackonstan> #info Vratko, revised the view about keeping one 3n-hsw per point 7.g. in notes from last week, and okay to delete 3n-hsw from csit (3n-dnv have qat and can run qat tests once they are supported again)
14:33:33 <mackonstan> #info Maciek, going ahead with removing 3n-hsw from CSIT (jobs, job_specs, trending, report, tests)
14:33:50 <mackonstan> #topic Virtual Infrastructure, CI/CD
14:34:45 <vrpolak> #info Steps for removing 3n-hsw: 1.PAL, 2.ci-management, 3. job specs, 4. lab docs, 5. hardware.
14:36:11 <mackonstan> #info Dave, last failures seen over the weekend (git clone failures)
14:36:35 <mackonstan> #info Dave, last monday bigger call with LF IT team, discussion about the root cause, the actual RC not identified. Can't repro the problem either
14:37:11 <mackonstan> #info Dave, at the moment things are looking good from CI/CD operations perspective
14:41:19 <mackonstan> #topic Performance Tests
14:42:24 <mackonstan> #info Vratko, nat44ed multi-worker tests are not failing any more.
14:44:51 <mackonstan> #info Vratko, re avf multi-worker tests failures, situation has improved, frequency of failures has decreased
14:45:50 <mackonstan> #info Juraj, also noticed some failures, container-memif tests 4c 8c failing on arm and xeons
14:46:32 <mackonstan> #info Vratko, may be related to avf failures
14:49:43 <mackonstan> #info Reduce number of tests from trending, iterative, report
14:50:08 <mackonstan> #info Maciek, asking for comments / reviews on listed patches if folks care about those tests
14:51:05 <mackonstan> #topic Functional Tests
14:51:37 <mackonstan> #info Peter, Juraj, finally nailing down the long-term saga issue "Faulty VF initialization during DPDK startup when multiple DPDK instances use different VFs with the same PF"
14:52:15 <mackonstan> #info Juraj, after a long long conversation and multitude requests to try and test many different / latest-greatest combinations of DPDK stack, that all were broken
14:53:49 <mackonstan> #info Juraj, issue narrowed down to a DPDK bug related to switching from i40e to iavf code being in progress, with some DPDK code still using i40e code that got deprecated/removed
14:55:41 <mackonstan> #info Juraj, tested patch provided by Ray that forces dpdk to use iavf
14:56:02 <mackonstan> #info Juraj, it works now, waiting for official patch from dpdk
14:59:53 <fan_zhang> https://lists.fd.io/g/csit-dev/message/4337
15:01:19 <mackonstan> #info Juraj, once dpdk patch is confirmed, happy to add it to dpdk patches for vpp
15:01:41 <mackonstan> #info Fan, what is the best way to proceed with flow offload for PF?
15:01:57 <mackonstan> #info Peter, these can be supported in perf testbed, perf tests
15:02:24 <mackonstan> #info Maciek, Peter, Vratko, agreed that it makes sense to code them as perf tests using TRex
