RSSv2 is preview only in Windows 10, version 1803.

The NDIS_RSS_SET_INDIRECTION_ENTRY structure represents a command to set a single indirection table entry. It is contained in an NDIS_RSS_SET_INDIRECTION_ENTRIES structure, which is used in the OID_GEN_RSS_SET_INDIRECTION_TABLE_ENTRIES OID. OID_GEN_RSS_SET_INDIRECTION_TABLE_ENTRIES is a Synchronous OID for RSS Version 2 (RSSv2).

Syntax

typedef struct _NDIS_RSS_SET_INDIRECTION_ENTRY {
  NDIS_NIC_SWITCH_ID       SwitchId;
  NDIS_NIC_SWITCH_VPORT_ID VPortId;
  ULONG                    Flags;
  USHORT                   IndirectionTableIndex;
  PROCESSOR_NUMBER         TargetProcessorNumber;
  NDIS_STATUS              EntryStatus;
} NDIS_RSS_SET_INDIRECTION_ENTRY, *PNDIS_RSS_SET_INDIRECTION_ENTRY;

Members

SwitchId

An NDIS_NIC_SWITCH_ID value that represents the NIC switch where the VPort resides.

The switch identifier is an integer between zero and the number of switches that the network adapter supports. An NDIS_DEFAULT_SWITCH_ID value indicates the default network adapter switch.

This field should be set to 0 in the Native RSS case.

VPortId

An NDIS_NIC_SWITCH_VPORT_ID value that represents the VPort identifier.

This field should be set to 0 in the Native RSS case.

Flags

A ULONG value that contains a bitwise OR of flags. This member qualifies the information in this structure.

Possible flags are as follows:

Value Meaning
NDIS_RSS_SET_INDIRECTION_ENTRY_FLAG_PRIMARY_PROCESSOR
Indicates that the NDIS_RSS_SET_INDIRECTION_ENTRY is referring to the primary processor of the scaling entity. The indirection table is not used. When the primary processor is *inactive* (RSS is enabled), the miniport driver should track updates to entries with this flag set so it knows which processor will be the primary when RSS is disabled.
NDIS_RSS_SET_INDIRECTION_ENTRY_FLAG_DEFAULT_PROCESSOR
Indicates that the NDIS_RSS_SET_INDIRECTION_ENTRY is referring to the default processor of the scaling entity. The default processor handles unhashed packets. The indirection table is not used. When the default processor is *inactive* (RSS is disabled), the miniport driver should track updates to entries with this flag set so it knows which processor will be default when RSS is enabled.

IndirectionTableIndex

The hash index of the ITE that currently points to the current CPU and is being modified to point to another processor. When the indirection table is inactive (RSS is disabled), the miniport driver should track updates to indirection table entries so it has the correct indirection table when RSS is enabled.

TargetProcessorNumber

The target processor number to which the ITE should point upon completion. The miniport driver should succeed ITE moves from current to current processor.

EntryStatus

An NDIS_STATUS code indicating the status of the move operation for this entry. Because NDIS_RSS_SET_INDIRECTION_ENTRY is used in the context of a Synchronous OID call, the miniport driver cannot return NDIS_STATUS_PENDING for this member.

To simplify miniport drivers' implementation, the upper layer protocol will initialize this field to NDIS_STATUS_PENDING. Miniport drivers must overwrite NDIS_STATUS_PENDING with either a success or failure NDIS status code. If the upper layer detects that this field is still NDIS_STATUS_PENDING upon completion of the OID_GEN_RSS_SET_INDIRECTION_TABLE_ENTRIES OID, it will cause a system bug check and indicate that the miniport driver is at fault.

Important

All NDIS_RSS_SET_INDIRECTION_ENTRY structures in a group, contained in an NDIS_RSS_SET_INDIRECTION_ENTRIES structure, must be marked with the same EntryStatus.

If an error occurs with this move command, set EntryStatus to one of the following status codes for that error condition:

Status code Error condition
NDIS_STATUS_INVALID_PARAMETER
  • The SwitchId or VPortId member was invalid.
  • The Flags member was invalid.
  • The IndirectionTableIndex member exceeds the currently configured NumberOfIndirectionTableEntries from the NDIS_RECEIVE_SCALE_PARAMETERS_V2 structure.
NDIS_STATUS_INVALID_PORT_STATE The VPort is not activated or is in some other state that prevents it from accepting RSSv2 OIDs.
NDIS_STATUS_NOT_ACCEPTED The actor CPU was invalid.
NDIS_STATUS_INVALID_DATA For an active steering parameter, the new processor is not part of the adapter's RSS processor set. Note that inactive parameters only need to be tracked. They are validated later, during RSS state transition (to on or off).
NDIS_STATUS_NO_QUEUES A group of command entries fails the "number of queues" check for the VPort specified by that group.
