INTERFACE

STREAMS.

OVERVIEW

Background

STREAMS derives from Dennis Ritchie's original paper[1], was incorporated into the UNIX® System V Release 3[2] operating system, replaced the terminal input-output subsystem, pipes and FIFOs in UNIX® System V Release 4[3], and was improved in the USL release of the UNIX® System V Release 4.2[4] operating system.

Today, STREAMS is a part of every major branded UNIX® variant, such as AIX®[5], HP-UX®[6], IRIX®[7], MacOT®[8], OSF/1®[9], Solaris®[10], SUPER-UX®[11], UnixWare®[12], UXP/V®[13], and, including many UNIX-like operating systems and popular embedded RTOS, but with the notable exception of Berkley System Distribution releases, variants and offshoots, and Linux.

What is STREAMS?

STREAMS is flexible framework for communication between a user level process and a kernel resident driver. It encompasses a set of kernel system calls providing a user-kernel interface that is backward compatible with the traditional character device driver interface, as well as a set of STREAMS driver and module entry points forming a driver-kernel interface. STREAMS also provides a rich set of kernel utility functions for the development and implementation of kernel-resident drivers and modules. STREAMS prompted the specification of the DDI/DKI which is an architecture independent driver-kernel interface that provides a standardized set of kernel functions (beyond just STREAMS) for the development of device and software drivers.

STREAMS provides a reconfigurable full-duplex communications path between a user level process and kernel resident driver, termed a Stream. Modules can be inserted in the path between the user and driver under user level control. Streams can be linked across multiplexers under user control to form complex (yet reconfigurable) topologies of user level processes and drivers.

Communication of control and data information along a Stream is accomplished by message passing. There is no direct function call interface between between components of a Stream. A Stream exists within the STREAMS framework inside the kernel and extend from the user-kernel interface to the kernel driver interface. Each component of a Stream consists of a pair of queues used to pass messages in the upstream direction to the kernel-user interface; or downstream, the kernel-driver interface.

At the kernel-user end of the the Stream is a component called the Stream head. As with all components of the Stream, the Stream head consists of a queue pair and a specialized set of procedures. The Stream head procedures are responsible for converting between the system call interface presented to users and the message passing mechanism within the Stream.

At the kernel-driver end of the Stream is the Stream end. The Stream end also contains a queue pair and a set of procedures. The Stream end (or simply driver) procedures are responsible for converting between the message passing mechanism within the Stream the actions and events of a hardware (or pseudo-) device.

Intermediate components within the Stream are call Modules. Modules also consist of a queue pair for passing messages upstream and downstream, as well as a set of procedures for processing messages. Modules can be pushed onto the module stack between the Stream head and Stream end using a set of standardized input-output control commands.

In support of topologies more complex that these simple linear segments, STREAMS also provides a specialized Stream end (driver) called a Multiplexing Driver. A Multiplexing driver has the ability to open multiple Streams to its upper interface (multiplexer) as well as linking multiple Streams beneath its lower interface (multiplexer). Again, a standardized set of input-output control provide the user with the ability to configure a Multiplexing Driver.

These STREAMS components, and the elements of the user-kernel and kernel-driver interface are detailed in the manual pages. The sections that follow provide a road map to the rest of the manual pages in the The OpenSS7 Project package.

Why STREAMS?

With the ability to open multiple Streams to a driver, push and pop modules to and from the module stack on a Stream, and to link any Stream under a multiplexing driver---all under user control using standardized input-output controls---allows STREAMS to configure complex topologies to form protocol stacks.

Almost all specialized standard telecommunications software developed since 1990 was developed to run on STREAMS. This is for several reasons:

*
Since 1990, STREAMS and the associated DDI/DKI has been, and remains, the only way to incorporate OEM protocol stacks into mainstream UNIX® system kernels.
*
The original UNIX System Laboratories (later X/Open then later the OpenGroup) support for ITU-T developed OSI protocols, makes STREAMS amenable to a open model for development of ITU-T protocols. (ITU-T, formerly CCITT, is the International Telecommunications Union --- Telephone Sector responsible for international telephone standards, and original developers of the OSI model.)

As a result, there is a significant body of commercial software implementing telecommunications protocol stacks that was developed, tested, validated, conformance tested, field verified, to run on STREAMS: and are still running on STREAMS.

The cost of reimplementation, retesting, revalidation, redoing conformance testing, and field re-verification, would likely be prohibitive: after all, the point of Linux is reducing cost, is it not?

Why STREAMS for Linux?

The Linux kernel was not developed with STREAMS in mind. For TCP/IP networking, Linux originally followed in the footsteps of the BSD NET4 release. Currently, the implementation of TCP/IP in the Linux kernel has long departed from the classical BSD organization and exhibits characteristics unique to the GNU/Linux system. For character devices and terminal input-output, Linux follows closely the SVR 3[2] pre-STREAMS approach to pipes, FIFOs and terminal subsystem. The terminal subsystem implementation, too, has become unique to GNU/Linux.

Therefore, from the perspective of TCP/IP networking and Terminal I/O, there would be little reason to provide STREAMS for Linux. That is, if it were not for the body of software supporting OSI and Telecommunications protocols based solely on STREAMS, for which Linux has little or no support.

So, the answer to the question, "Why STREAMS for Linux?" is: so that a GNU/Linux platform can enjoy the same wealth of Telecommunications and OSI protocol stacks otherwise only available to big-iron UNIX®. Without STREAMS, Linux is probably just another BSD, and probably not a very good one.

History of STREAMS for Linux

In the mid-90's, GCOM, Inc. embarked on development on an open source implementation of STREAMS called Linux STREAMS (LiS), likely driven by its use for porting existing OSI protocol stacks to Linux. In 2000, The OpenSS7 Project abandoned using the Linux networking model for implementation of the Signalling System No. 7 protocol (primarily due to the lack of support for the full BSD networking model under Linux) and switched to using STREAMS as the basis for all future development. The GCOM LiS release (2.2 at the time) was used as the STREAMS package. Over the span of the next 5 years, (and not surprisingly given the body of software), almost all Signalling System No. 7 products released on Linux used LiS for STREAMS. In 2005, Dave Grothe (the G in GCOM) announced that he would no longer be maintaining or developing LiS subsequent to the 2.18.0 release, stranding many users of the package.

Later in 2005, after briefly maintaining two GPL'ed releases of LiS, (2.18.1 and 2.18.2), The OpenSS7 Project released (after two years of development) the streams-0.7a.4 package: a re-implementation of SVR 4.2 STREAMS with compatibility modules for all major UNIX® releases, called The OpenSS7 Project. The OpenSS7 Project was intended as a POSIX/SUSv3 XSR conforming, high performance, production grade, replacement for LiS, suitable for mainline Linux adoption, and a better foundation on which to base SIGTRAN, VoIP, ISDN and SS7 protocol stacks developed under The OpenSS7 Project, as well as a better foundation for porting commercial UNIX® OEM implementations to Linux. It is the OpenSS7-0.9.2 package that contains the documentation that you are reading now.

Why Fast?

After working with LiS releases for over 3 years, in late 2003, The OpenSS7 Project decided to begin implementation of a replacement for LiS, because of a number of shortcoming of the LiS releases:

a)
unsuitable for mainline kernel adoption due to coding style and organization;
b)
poorly adapted to distribution production kernels;
c)
is unsuitable for packaging and repeatability;
d)
portability objective unsuitable for mainline kernel adoption;
e)
ports from the same baseline obfuscate the code;
f)
performs poorly due to portability and coding style;
g)
code bloat and over-sized memory footprint;
h)
redundant debug statements obscuring defects and obfuscating code;
i)
overuse of sempahores;
j)
contains serious races and not suitable for threaded applications;
k)
does not conform to mainstream UNIX® implementations;
l)
does not conform well to POSIX or any release of the Single UNIX Specification;
m)
limited set of standard drivers and modules;
n)
limited set of diagnostic and administrative utilities;
o)
limited test programs;
p)
poorly documented.

The replacement, named The OpenSS7 Project, was to correct all of these difficulties, and, by the initial streams-0.7a.4 release, is:

a)
completely Lindented and follows kernel coding practises;
b)
automatically adapts to production kernels with autoconf;
c)
packages itself into LSB compliant RPMs and DEBs;
d)
designed and implemented specifically for GNU/Linux;
e)
no ports considered;
f)
order of magnitude faster performance;
g)
order of magnitude smaller memory footprint;
h)
proper programming by assertion;
i)
proper use of lightweight spinlocks;
j)
race free locking strategies and synchronization;
k)
compatible with all mainstream UNIX® implementations;
l)
conforms to POSIX/SUSv3 XSR;
m)
complete set of standard drivers and modules;
n)
complete set of diagnostic and administrative utilities;
o)
integrated set of conformance testsuites;
p)
fully documented.

Many specific difficulties encountered with LiS not repeated by The OpenSS7 Project are contained in the COMPATIBILITY section of most manual pages.

Notes:

---
canenable() is really an SVR 3.2 compatibility function that should not be used with SVR 4 STREAMS programs.
---
For the most part the UNIX® System V Release 4.0 STREAMS functions are universally implemented. Exceptions to this include backq(9), which appears to be an oversight on the part of SUPER-UX® documentation[11]; esbbcall(9), that can be emulated by calling bufcall(9), with a size of zero; getadmin(9), getmid(9) and strlog(9), which seems to be more of a Solaris® and LiS problem; SAMESTR(9), which is only useful on systems with pipes and FIFOs;
---
Note how LiS always misses what Solaris misses. That is probably not a coincidence.
---
For specific compatibility notes, see the manual page for the individual function.

UNIX® System V Release 4 MP STREAMS Functions:

UNIX® System V Release 4.0 Multiprocessor (MP) STREAMS functions and their documented support in the various implementations with which Linux Fast-STREAMS is compatible. Linux Fast-STREAMS implements most of these functions in the core streams kernel module. The MPSTR_ locking functions are part of the SVR 4.2 MP compatibility module, streams-svr4compat because they are only have documented support in UnixWare®.

Notes:

---
Although they are STREAMS functions, nobody other than UnixWare® mentions the MPSTR_* functions[15], so they are placed in the SVR 4.2 MP compatibility module, streams-svr4compat.
---
The pcmsg(9) function seems to have been missed by a number of implementations.
---
Note how LiS always misses what Solaris misses. That is probably not a coincidence.
---
LiS has been notoriously bad at implementing these MP functions.
---
AIX®, OSF/1® and UXP/V® do not document any of these functions, which is bad: these are the MP functions for STREAMS.

IOCTLS

See streamio(7).

SYSCTLS

Linux Fast-STREAMS provides and supports a number of system controls that can be accessed using the /proc/sys/streams/* files, with the sysctl(2) interface, or using sysctl(8).

The following STREAMS specific system controls are provided by Linux Fast-STREAMS:

sys.streams.cltime
Defines the default time interval (in milliseconds) that closing stream will linger for messages to clear its queues before finally closing. Valid values are zero (0) or greater (MAXINT). The default value is the traditional UNIX value of 15,000 milliseconds (15 seconds). This system control defines the default for all new streams. The value for a given stream can be changed with the streamio(7) IO control I_CLTIME, after the stream is opened and before the stream is closed.
sys.streams.max_apush
Defines the maximum number of modules that can be configured for autopush onto a STREAMS driver. Valid values are zero (0) or greater (MAXINT). The default value is the traditional UNIX value of 8 modules. This system control defines the maximum for all new autopush configurations. Existing autopush configurations are unchanged.
sys.streams.max_mblk
Defines the maximum number of combined message data blocks that will be held on the per-CPU free list between runs of runqueues(9). Valid values are zero (0) or greater (MAXINT). The default value is the traditional UNIX value of 10 blocks. This system control defines the maximum for the next run of runqueues(9) for all CPUs. Increasing or decreasing this number may have a positive or negative performance impact.
sys.streams.max_stramod
Defines the maximum number of autopush structures that can be defined for the entire system. Valid values are zero (0) or greater (MAXINT). The default value is eight (8) ??????? This system control defines the system-wide maximum.
sys.streams.max_strdev
Defines the maximum number of streams devices. This is normally the maximum number of character devices (MAX_CHRDEV). Valid values are zero (0) or greater (MAXINT). The default value is MAX_CHRDEV (256). This is a read-only system control.
sys.streams.max_strmod
Defines the maximum number of streams modules. This is normally the maximum number of character devices (MAX_CHRDEV). Valid values are zero (0) or greater (MAXINT). The default value is MAX_CHRDEV (256). This is a read-only system control.
sys.streams.msg_priority
Defines whether allocation priority will be honoured or whether all allocations will be treated the same. See allocb(9). When true (non-zero), allocation priority will be honoured when allocating message blocks. When false (zero), allocation priority will be ignored. Valid values are zero (0) or non-zero. The default value is zero (0). Changing this value may have a positive or negative impact on system performance.
sys.streams.nband
Defines the number of queue bands available. Valid values are zero (0) or greater (MAXINT). The default value is the traditional UNIX value of 256. This system control defines the system wide value. This system control is read-only.
sys.streams.nstrmsgs
Defines the maximum number of combined message data blocks that will be allocated. Valid values are zero (0) or greater (MAXINT). The default value is 2^12. Changing this value may have a positive or negative impact on system performance. Setting this value to a small number may be useful for debugging STREAMS drivers and modules.
sys.streams.nstrpush
Defines the maximum number of modules that can be pushed on a stream. This includes both autopushed modules and modules pushed using the I_PUSH IO control of streamio(7). Valid values are zero (0) or greater (MAXINT). The default value is the traditional UNIX value of 64. This is the default values for all new streams. Existing streams are unaffected.
sys.streams.hiwat
Defines the default high water mark (in message bytes) for the stream head. Valid values are zero (0) or greater (MAXINT). The default value is 5120. This is the default value for all new stream heads. Existing stream heads are unaffected. The value on existing stream heads can be changed by a driver or module by sending an M_SETOPTS(9) message to the stream head.
sys.streams.lowat
Defines the default low water mark (in mesasge bytes) for the stream head. Valid values are zero (0) or greater (MAXINT). The default value is 1024. This is the default value for all new stream heads. Existing stream heads are unaffected. The value on existing stream heads can be changed by a driver or module by sending an M_SETOPTS(9) message to the stream head.
sys.streams.maxpsz
Defines the maximum packet size accepted (in message bytes) for the stream head. Valid values are zero (0) or greater (MAXINT). The default value is 2^12. This is the default value for all new stream heads. Existing stream heads are unaffected. The value on existing stream heads can be changed by a driver or module by sending an M_SETOPTS(9) message to the stream head.
sys.streams.minpsz
Defines the minimum packet size accepted (in message bytes) for the stream head. Valid values are zero (0) or greater (MAXINT). The default value is 0. This is the default value for all new stream heads. Existing stream heads are unaffected. The value on existing stream heads can be changed by a driver or module by sending an M_SETOPTS(9) message to the stream head.
sys.streams.reuse_fmodsw
Defines whether fmodsw table entries will be reused. When false (zero), fmodsw table entries will not be reused. When true (non-zero), fmodsw table entries will be reused. Valid values are zero (0) and non-zero. The default value is false (zero).
sys.streams.rtime
Defines the time interval (in milliseconds) that the stream head will wait to forward held messages when SNDHOLD is set for the stream head. Valid values are zero (0) or greater (MAXINT). The default value is 10 milliseconds (one clock tick). This is the system wide value for all streams. Changing this value may have a positive or negative impact on system performance.
sys.streams.strhold
Defines whether the SNDHOLD feature is active or not. When false (0), the SNDHOLD feature is deactivated. When true (non-zero), the SNDHOLD feature is activated. Valid values are zero (0) or non-zero. The default value is false (0). This is the default value for all new streams. Existing streams are unaffected. This setting can be examined and altered on an open stream using the I_GWROPT and I_SWROPT IO controls of streamio(7).
sys.streams.strctlsz
Defines the maximum STREAMS control part size. Valid values are zero (0) or greater (MAXINT). The default value is 2^12. This is the system wide maximum. Existing allocations are unaffected by lowering this value. Changing this value can have an impact on users of putpmsg(2s).
sys.streams.strmsgsz
Defines the maximum STREAMS message size. Valid values are zero (0) or greater (MAXINT). The default value is 2^18. This is the system wide maximum. Existing allocations are unaffected by lowering this value. Changing this value can have an impact on users of write(2s), writev(2s), and putpmsg(2s).
sys.streams.strthresh
Defines the maximum amount of memory that will be allocated for use by the STREAMS subsystem via kmem_alloc(9) or kmem_zalloc(9), or indirectly using allocb(9) or allocating other STREAMS data structures. Valid values are zero (0) or greater (MAXINT). This is the system wide maximum. Existing allocations are unaffected by lowering this value. Changing this value to a low value may have some use in debugging STREAMS drivers and modules.
