CSIT-2101 Release Summary


- GENEVE tests: Added VPP performance tests for GENEVE tunnels.

- NAT44 tests: Added new test type, pure throughput tests, measuring
bi-directional forwarding performance after all stateful sessions are

- Jumbo for IPsec: Test cases with 9000 byte frames are re-enabled in
ipsec suites.

- IPv4, IPv6 scale: Added randomized traffic profiles for IPv6 scale
tests, improved repeatability.

- Arm 2n-tx2 testbed: New physical testbed type added with VPP and DPDK
performance data added to CSIT trending and this report.


- TRex ASTF: Improved capability to run TRex in advanced stateful mode.

- CSIT PAPI support: Due to issues with PAPI performance, VAT is still
used in CSIT for all VPP scale tests.


- Packet Latency Graphs: Updated with logarithmic X-Axis providing more
granular view of per packet latency.
