    SubjectRe: [PATCH 0/3] netfilter : 3 patches to boost ip_tables performance

    > Do you have any performance measurements?

    Yes, as I said in the first mail :

    >In oprofile results, ipt_do_table() was at the first position.
    >It is now at 6th position, using 1/3 of the CPU it was using before.
    >(Tests done on a dual Xeon i386 and a dual Opteron x86_64)

    On the dual opteron machine, with 40.000 packets coming per second, and 35.000
    sent per second, the numbers were : 12.8 % before the patches, 4.4 % after the

    I dont have separate perf measurements for each patch.

    Considering the fact that I inlined the read_lock_bh() call (not displayed in
    oprofile results, probably because of the special .spinlock.text section) that
    should have increased the profile of ipt_do_table(), thats a lot of CPU cycles
    and mem bandwitdh that are available for other jobs.
