Run QEMU with hardware virtualization on macOS

在macOS上通过虚拟机运行其它操作系统,又不想用商业软件,那么开源的QEMU是一个比较好的选择。QEMU的功能支持还是比较全面的,除了功能以外,使用虚拟机软件的用户最关心的就是性能了,一个好消息是macOS 10.10+版本已经引人了硬件虚拟化支持框架,也就是Hypervisor.framework,另一个好消息是QEMU也已支持该框架,也就是hvf accelerator。

1. macOS 10.10+
2. Macports

已经使用过的用户可能已经发现,QEMU使用hvf accelerator并开启多核是有问题的呀。的确,QEMU使用hvf accelerator以单核运行时没有问题,当使用-smp参数指定多核时,很大概率上虚拟机硬件初始化都完成不了就死机了。
不过,好消息是该问题也已经修复了,导致这个问题的原因是hvf accelerator代码设计没有考虑到虚拟机启动后所有hvf vcpu都在并行执行指令,其中包括硬件初始化的I/O模拟操作,多个CPU同时对同一硬件执行初始化显然是不行的。

Patch (已经提交上游社区,Review中,期望尽快合并)

Configuring Bonding Manually via Sysfs

Configuring Bonding Manually via Sysfs

	Starting with version 3.0.0, Channel Bonding may be configured
via the sysfs interface.  This interface allows dynamic configuration
of all bonds in the system without unloading the module.  It also
allows for adding and removing bonds at runtime.  Ifenslave is no
longer required, though it is still supported.

	Use of the sysfs interface allows you to use multiple bonds
with different configurations without having to reload the module.
It also allows you to use multiple, differently configured bonds when
bonding is compiled into the kernel.

	You must have the sysfs filesystem mounted to configure
bonding this way.  The examples in this document assume that you
are using the standard mount point for sysfs, e.g. /sys.  If your
sysfs filesystem is mounted elsewhere, you will need to adjust the
example paths accordingly.

Creating and Destroying Bonds
To add a new bond foo:
# echo +foo > /sys/class/net/bonding_masters

To remove an existing bond bar:
# echo -bar > /sys/class/net/bonding_masters

To show all existing bonds:
# cat /sys/class/net/bonding_masters

NOTE: due to 4K size limitation of sysfs files, this list may be
truncated if you have more than a few hundred bonds.  This is unlikely
to occur under normal operating conditions.

Adding and Removing Slaves
	Interfaces may be enslaved to a bond using the file
/sys/class/net//bonding/slaves.  The semantics for this file
are the same as for the bonding_masters file.

To enslave interface eth0 to bond bond0:
# ifconfig bond0 up
# echo +eth0 > /sys/class/net/bond0/bonding/slaves

To free slave eth0 from bond bond0:
# echo -eth0 > /sys/class/net/bond0/bonding/slaves

	When an interface is enslaved to a bond, symlinks between the
two are created in the sysfs filesystem.  In this case, you would get
/sys/class/net/bond0/slave_eth0 pointing to /sys/class/net/eth0, and
/sys/class/net/eth0/master pointing to /sys/class/net/bond0.

	This means that you can tell quickly whether or not an
interface is enslaved by looking for the master symlink.  Thus:
# echo -eth0 > /sys/class/net/eth0/master/bonding/slaves
will free eth0 from whatever bond it is enslaved to, regardless of
the name of the bond interface.

Changing a Bond's Configuration
	Each bond may be configured individually by manipulating the
files located in /sys/class/net//bonding

	The names of these files correspond directly with the command-
line parameters described elsewhere in this file, and, with the
exception of arp_ip_target, they accept the same values.  To see the
current setting, simply cat the appropriate file.

	A few examples will be given here; for specific usage
guidelines for each parameter, see the appropriate section in this

To configure bond0 for balance-alb mode:
# ifconfig bond0 down
# echo 6 > /sys/class/net/bond0/bonding/mode
 - or -
# echo balance-alb > /sys/class/net/bond0/bonding/mode
	NOTE: The bond interface must be down before the mode can be

To enable MII monitoring on bond0 with a 1 second interval:
# echo 1000 > /sys/class/net/bond0/bonding/miimon
	NOTE: If ARP monitoring is enabled, it will disabled when MII
monitoring is enabled, and vice-versa.

To add ARP targets:
# echo + > /sys/class/net/bond0/bonding/arp_ip_target
# echo + > /sys/class/net/bond0/bonding/arp_ip_target
	NOTE:  up to 16 target addresses may be specified.

To remove an ARP target:
# echo - > /sys/class/net/bond0/bonding/arp_ip_target

To configure the interval between learning packet transmits:
# echo 12 > /sys/class/net/bond0/bonding/lp_interval
	NOTE: the lp_inteval is the number of seconds between instances where
the bonding driver sends learning packets to each slaves peer switch.  The
default interval is 1 second.

Example Configuration
	We begin with the same example that is shown in section 3.3,
executed with sysfs, and without using ifenslave.

	To make a simple bond of two e100 devices (presumed to be eth0
and eth1), and have it persist across reboots, edit the appropriate
file (/etc/init.d/boot.local or /etc/rc.d/rc.local), and add the

modprobe bonding
modprobe e100
echo balance-alb > /sys/class/net/bond0/bonding/mode
ifconfig bond0 netmask up
echo 100 > /sys/class/net/bond0/bonding/miimon
echo +eth0 > /sys/class/net/bond0/bonding/slaves
echo +eth1 > /sys/class/net/bond0/bonding/slaves

	To add a second bond, with two e1000 interfaces in
active-backup mode, using ARP monitoring, add the following lines to
your init script:

modprobe e1000
echo +bond1 > /sys/class/net/bonding_masters
echo active-backup > /sys/class/net/bond1/bonding/mode
ifconfig bond1 netmask up
echo + /sys/class/net/bond1/bonding/arp_ip_target
echo 2000 > /sys/class/net/bond1/bonding/arp_interval
echo +eth2 > /sys/class/net/bond1/bonding/slaves
echo +eth3 > /sys/class/net/bond1/bonding/slaves

一个简单、轻量的 Linux 协程实现

HevTaskSystem 是一个简单的、轻量的多任务系统(或称协程),它工作于 Linux 平台,I/O event poll 基于 Epoll。

1. 协程是一个并发运行的多任务系统,一般由一个操作系统线程驱动。
2. 协程任务元数据资源占用比操作系统线程更低,且任务切换开销小。
3. 协程是任务间协作式调度,即某一任务主动放弃执行后进而调度另外一任务投入运行。


HevTaskSystem 目前开放了四个类:HevTaskSystem、HevTask、HevTaskPoll 和 HevMemoryAllocator。
HevTaskSystem 是协程任务系统,管理、调度众多的 HevTask 实例运行。由单一操作系统线程驱动,多个线程可并行驱动多套任务系统。
HevTask 是协程任务,实例可加入某一 HevTaskSystem 中调度运行。
HevTaskPoll 是提供了 poll 兼容的系统调用。
HevMemoryAllocator 是一个内存分配器接口,其后端有两套实现:
* 原始分配器,等价于 malloc/free。
* Slice 分配器,按分配大小限量缓存的分配器,缓存替换算法是 LRU。

Public API
TaskSystem – hev-task-system.h
Task – hev-task.h
TaskPoll – hev-task-poll.h
MemoryAllocator – hev-memory-allocator.h

该示例演示了在主线程上运行一个协程任务系统,并创建两个独立的协程任务,分别以不同的优先级运行各自的入口函数。各自的入口函数中各循环2次,每次打印一个字符串并 yield 释放CPU 触发调度切换。

Windows 7 有线局域网组播接收丢包调试

一有线局域网实时流媒体组播传输应用从 Windows 10 迁移至 Windows 7 平台后,迁移后传输质量下降明显。

对比实验发现在同一发送端的同一组播窗口中,运行在 Windows 7 系统上的接收端效果明显劣于 Windows 10 接收端。

分析接收端的收到的数据包发现,Windows 7 平台的接收端存在明显的丢包现象。于是排查了这两个方面:
1. Win7 网卡驱动较 Win10 较旧。
2. Socket 默认接收缓冲区是否太小。

针对第1点,在将 Win7 网卡驱动升级至最新后无明显改善。:(
针对第2点,显式设置了接收缓冲区为 1MB 后,接收质量得到明显改善。:)
