    1. only few of us here, so short meeting, focusing on incremental updates (mackonstan, 14:12:05)

  4. TSC update (mackonstan, 14:12:41)
    1. Maciek: CY 2022 FD.io budget planning, Trishan is collecting feedback, review on TSC meeting tomorrow (mackonstan, 14:13:54)

  5. New tests, refactored tests (mackonstan, 14:14:10)
    1. Fan, performance tests require more careful design, unlikely to happen for this release (mackonstan, 14:15:11)
    2. Fan, vpp_device tests are not working on 1n-skx, gettiner error: the "vpp_sw_index" of E810CQ port is None. (mackonstan, 14:17:18)
    3. Maciek, may be related to issue with one of the NICs, per Peter's vexxhost ticket (replace E810 with only 1 port 200GE showing up): (mackonstan, 14:18:15)
    4. https://secure.vexxhost.com/billing/viewticket.php?tid=BGY-197011&c=3b1qMRWQ (mackonstan, 14:18:17)
    5. Fan, re performance tests for async crypto, crypto worker scheduler is working fine, suspecting I/O worker (the one being faster than crypto workers) being too fast, pushing too many packets to crypto workers, and as the buffer pool is full, dropping them to the floor. But no hard proof yet. (mackonstan, 14:23:34)
    6. Fan, need a counter similar to rx_no_buf on interfaces. (mackonstan, 14:26:07)
    7. Fan, problem apparent for 1518B and 9000B. Trying to address the problem, not sure how to do it on VPP side, but for now focusing on getting it working in CSIT by extending the size of the buffer pool size and increasing number of crypto-workers. (mackonstan, 14:29:05)
    8. Maciek, TRex b2b tests are completed, used for TRex performance monitoring, calibration and will be added shortly to trending pages. (mackonstan, 14:30:13)
    9. Maciek, scale tests are now fixed and working, replaced broken VAT with CLI executor for now, will be moving to VAT2 next (mackonstan, 14:30:55)
