Build Update for orgcandman/ovs
-------------------------------------

Build: #178
Status: Fixed

Duration: 1 hr, 2 mins, and 4 secs
Commit: bf74bc1 (reduced_port_polling_v2)
Author: Aaron Conole
Message: dpif-netlink: distribute polling to discreet handlers

ENOTREADY

Currently, the channel handlers are polled globally.  On some
systems, this causes a thundering herd issue where multiple
handler threads become active, only to do no work and immediately
sleep.

The approach here is to push the netlink socket channels to discreet
handler threads to process, rather than polling on every thread.
This will eliminate the need to wake multiple threads.

To check:

  ip netns add left
  ip netns add right
  ip link add center-left type veth peer name left0
  ip link add center-right type veth peer name right0
  ip link set left0 netns left
  ip link set right0 netns right
  ip link set center-left up
  ip link set center-right up
  ip -n left ip link set left0 up
  ip -n left ip addr add 172.31.110.10/24 dev left0
  ip -n right ip link set right0 up
  ip -n right ip addr add 172.31.110.11/24 dev right0

  ovs-vsctl add-br br0
  ovs-vsctl add-port br0 center-right
  ovs-vsctl add-port br0 center-left

  # in one terminal
  perf record -e sched:sched_wakeup,irq:softirq_entry -ag

  # in a separate terminal
  ip netns exec left arping -I left0 -c 1 172.31.110.11

  # in the perf terminal after exiting
  perf script

Look for the number of 'handler' threads which were made active.
