mptcp-pm alternatives and similar packages

Based on the "network" category

Do you think we are missing an alternative of mptcp-pm or a related project?

Add another 'network' Package

README

This is a userspace path manager for the linux multipath TCP kernel, starting from version v0.95.

The software

The netlink module asks for GENL_ADMIN_PERM => The operation requires the CAP_NET_ADMIN privilege

sudo setcap cap_net_admin+ep hs/dist-newstyle/build/x86_64-linux/ghc-8.6.3/netlink-pm-1.0.0/x/daemon/build/daemon/daemon

To fetch TCP diagnostics: Creates a socket with family eNETLINK_INET_DIAG (really NETLINK_SOCK_DIAG) with value 4 AF_INET => netlink family 2

Compilation

With a custom netlink and kernel Compile the custom netlink library with

$ cabal configure --enable-library-profiling
kernel $ make headers_install
$ cabal configure --package-db /home/teto/netlink-hs/dist/package.conf.inplace --extra-include-dirs=/home/teto/mptcp2/build/usr/include -v3 --enable-profiling

To compile the doc (and understand why HIE fails displaying anything) cabal haddock --all

Usage

Enter the nix-shell shell-test.nix and start the daemon:

$ cabal run daemon

or $ buildNRun To print a stacktrace cabal run daemon toto -- +RTS -xc

In a shell: $ nix run nixpkgs.iperf -c iperf -s

In another: $ nix run nixpkgs.iperf -c iperf -c localhost -b 1KiB -t 4 --cport 5500 -4 -C cubic

Script to reload module

reload_mod() {
    newMod="$1"

    if [ -z "${newMod}" ]; then
        echo "Use: <path to new module>"
        echo "possibly /home/teto/mptcp2/build/net/mptcp/mptcp_netlink.ko"
    fi
# 1. change to another scheduler
    mppm "fullmesh"
    sleep 1
# 2. rmmod the current one
    sudo rmmod "mptcp_netlink"

# 3. Insert our new module
    sleep 1
    sudo insmod "$1"

# 4. restore path manager
    mppm "netlink"

}

BUGS

  • conversion of SockDiagExtensionId is bad everywhere ? req.r.idiag_ext |= (1<<(INET_DIAG_INFO-1));

TODO

  • remove the need for MptcpSocket everywhere: it's just needed to write the header, which could be added/modifier later instead ! (to increase purity in the library)
  • replace Enum2Bits wordToEnums function, especially to fix getSockDiagRequestHeader (with bitset package once it's fixed)
  • we need to better keep track of subflow status (established vs WIP) ?
  • pass local/server IPs as commands to the PM ?
  • generate completion scripts via --zsh-completion-script

Note: ss package sends by default -- #define SS_ALL ((1 << SS_MAX) - 1) -- #define SS_CONN (SS_ALL & ~((1<<SS_LISTEN)|(1<<SS_CLOSE)|(1<<SS_TIME_WAIT)|(1<<SS_SYN_RECV))) -- #define TIPC_SS_CONN ((1<<SS_ESTABLISHED)|(1<<SS_LISTEN)|(1<<SS_CLOSE))
