*From*: Stefan Berger <stefanb linux vnet ibm com>*To*: stefanb linux vnet ibm com, libvirt-list redhat com*Subject*: [libvirt] [PATCH 1/6] Optimize the elements the iterator visits.*Date*: Fri, 09 Dec 2011 10:07:42 -0500

In this patch we introduce testing whether the iterator points to a unique set of entries that have not been seen before at one of the previous iterations. The point is to eliminate duplicates and with that unnecessary filtering rules by preventing identical filtering rules from being instantiated. Example with two lists: list1 = [1,2,1] list2 = [1,3,1] The 1st iteration would take the 1st items of each list -> 1,1 The 2nd iteration would take the 2nd items of each list -> 2,3 The 3rd iteration would take the 3rd items of each list -> 1,1 but skip them since this same pair has already been encountered in the 1st iteration Implementation-wise this is solved by taking the n-th element of list1 and comparing it against elements 1..n-1. If no equivalent is found, then there is no possibility of this being a duplicate. In case an equivalent element is found at position i, then the n-th element in the 2nd list is compared against the i-th element in the 2nd list and if that is not the same, then this is a unique pair, otherwise it is not unique and we may need to do the same comparison on the 3rd list. --- src/conf/nwfilter_params.c | 55 +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++-- 1 file changed, 53 insertions(+), 2 deletions(-) Index: libvirt-iterator/src/conf/nwfilter_params.c =================================================================== --- libvirt-iterator.orig/src/conf/nwfilter_params.c +++ libvirt-iterator/src/conf/nwfilter_params.c @@ -348,6 +348,52 @@ virNWFilterVarCombIterAddVariable(virNWF } /* + * Test whether the iterator entry points to a distinguished set of entries + * that have not been seen before at one of the previous iterations. + * + * The point of this function is to eliminate duplicates. + * Example with two lists: + * + * list1 = [1,2,1] + * list2 = [1,3,1] + * + * The 1st iteration would take the 1st items of each list -> 1,1 + * The 2nd iteration would take the 2nd items of each list -> 2,3 + * The 3rd iteration would take the 3rd items of each list -> 1,1 but + * skip them since this pair has already been encountered in the 1st iteration + */ +static bool +virNWFilterVarCombIterEntryAreUniqueEntries(virNWFilterVarCombIterEntryPtr cie, + virNWFilterHashTablePtr hash) +{ + unsigned int i, j; + virNWFilterVarValuePtr varValue, tmp; + const char *value; + + varValue = virHashLookup(hash->hashTable, cie->varNames[0]); + + value = virNWFilterVarValueGetNthValue(varValue, cie->curValue); + + for (i = 0; i < cie->curValue; i++) { + if (STREQ(value, virNWFilterVarValueGetNthValue(varValue, i))) { + bool isSame = true; + for (j = 1; j < cie->nVarNames; j++) { + tmp = virHashLookup(hash->hashTable, cie->varNames[j]); + if (!STREQ(virNWFilterVarValueGetNthValue(tmp, cie->curValue), + virNWFilterVarValueGetNthValue(tmp, i))) { + isSame = false; + break; + } + } + if (isSame) + return false; + } + } + + return true; +} + +/* * Create an iterator over the contents of the given variables.
