Wang, Yipeng1 Sept. 28, 2018, 5:23 p.m. UTC
In use cases that hash table capacity needs to be guaranteed,
the extendable bucket feature can be used to contain extra
keys in linked lists when conflict happens. This is similar
concept to the extendable bucket hash table in packet
framework.

This commit adds the extendable bucket feature. User can turn
it on or off through the extra flag field during table
creation time.

Extendable bucket table composes of buckets that can be
linked list to current main table. When extendable bucket
is enabled, the hash table load can always acheive 100%.
In other words, the table can always accomodate the same
number of keys as the specified table size. This provides
100% table capacity guarantee.
Although keys ending up in the ext buckets may have longer
look up time, they should be rare due to the cuckoo
algorithm.

In lock-free algorithm, this will require the global counter increment.

Minor: We are trying to find the last bucket here, along with its previous. May be we can modify 'rte_hash_get_last_bkt' instead?

In the lock-less algorithm, the bucket cannot be freed immediately. I looked at couple of solutions. The bucket needs to be stored internally and should be associated with the key-store index (or position). I am thinking that I will add a field to 'struct rte_hash_key' to store the bucket pointer or index.

From the code, my understanding is that we will free only the last bucket. We will never free the middle bucket, please correct me if I am wrong. This will keep it simple for the lock-free algorithm.

I could work through these issues. So, I do not see any issues for lock-free algorithm (as of now :) ).

[Wang, Yipeng] Even if the bucket is recycled immediately, what's the worst could happen? Even if there are readers currently iterating the deleted
Bucket, it is still fine right? It is a miss anyway.

Good question. Logically, freeing the bucket is similar to freeing memory. I think the worst that can happen is, readers will continue looking up a bucket (and any additional linked buckets), that they do not have to. But, I do not see any illegal memory accesses. I will have a better answer once I get code this.

Pause is much to short. Maybe nanosleep or sched_yield()?

Hmm.. As a second thought, maybe we don't need any pause/sleep here?

It is not a waiting loop and in multithreading case it is in the writer lock so this thread
Should be the only thread operating this data structure.

What do you think?

BTW Honnappa, in the lock free implementation, is hash_reset protected? We should
indicate in the API doc which API is supposed to be protected by user.

Thanks

Yes, this is a single thread use case. This is resetting the ring.

I do not understand the use case for hash_reset API. Why not call hash_free and hash_create?
But, lock free implementation does not handle hash_reset. I will document it in the next version.

I assume reset maybe still faster than free and create. Also, after free, you cannot guarantee that
the creation can succeed.  It might also require less user-level code by using reset. 
I agree that in most use cases people can just free and create a new one.
