[Qemu-devel] [PATCH V4 00/10] Add support for binding guest numa nodes t

Subject: [Qemu-devel] [PATCH V4 00/10] Add support for binding guest numa nodes to host numa nodes
Date: Thu, 4 Jul 2013 17:53:07 +0800

As you know, QEMU can't direct it's memory allocation now, this may cause
guest cross node access performance regression.
And, the worse thing is that if PCI-passthrough is used,
direct-attached-device uses DMA transfer between device and qemu process.
All pages of the guest will be pinned by get_user_pages().

      => kvm_iommu_map_memslots()
        => kvm_iommu_map_pages()
           => kvm_pin_pages()

So, with direct-attached-device, all guest page's page count will be +1 and
any page migration will not work. AutoNUMA won't too.

So, we should set the guest nodes memory allocation policy before
the pages are really mapped.

According to this patch set, we are able to set guest nodes memory policy
like following:

 -numa node,nodeid=0,mem=1024,cpus=0,mem-policy=membind,mem-hostnode=0-1
 -numa node,nodeid=1,mem=1024,cpus=1,mem-policy=interleave,mem-hostnode=1

This supports 
"mem-policy={membind|interleave|preferred},mem-hostnode=[+|!]{all|N-N}" like 

And patch 8/10 adds a QMP command "set-mpol" to set the memory policy for every
guest nodes:
    set-mpol nodeid=0 mem-policy=membind mem-hostnode=0-1

And patch 9/10 adds a monitor command "set-mpol" whose format like:
    set-mpol 0 mem-policy=membind,mem-hostnode=0-1

And with patch 10/10, we can get the current memory policy of each guest node
using monitor command "info numa", for example:

    (qemu) info numa
    2 nodes
    node 0 cpus: 0
    node 0 size: 1024 MB
    node 0 mempolicy: membind=0,1
    node 1 cpus: 1
    node 1 size: 1024 MB
    node 1 mempolicy: interleave=1

    change to use QemuOpts in numa options (Paolo)
    handle Error in mpol parser (Paolo)
    change qmp command format to mem-policy=membind,mem-hostnode=0-1 like 
    also handle Error in cpus parser (5/10)
    split out common parser from cpus and hostnode parser (Bandan 6/10)
    rebase to request for comments

Bandan Das (1):
  NUMA: Support multiple CPU ranges on -numa option

Wanlong Gao (9):
  NUMA: Add numa_info structure to contain numa nodes info
  NUMA: Add Linux libnuma detection
  NUMA: parse guest numa nodes memory policy
  NUMA: handle Error in cpus, mpol and hostnode parser
  NUMA: split out the common range parser
  NUMA: set guest numa nodes memory policy
  NUMA: add qmp command set-mpol to set memory policy for NUMA node
  NUMA: add hmp command set-mpol
  NUMA: show host memory policy info in info numa command
