Description (last modified by fdupont)

During the discussion about Dhcp4o6Design, it became apparent that the DHCPv4 code flow needs adjustment in how the run() method is implemented. The run() command should be split into run() proper that calls processPacket().

This new processPacket() method will be called from run(), but also may be called from other places, e.g. a callback that receives 4o6 packet.

Couple more details: the main DHCPv4 server loop is in src/bin/dhcp4/ file, see Dhcp4Srv::run() method. This ticket should add a new Dhcp4Srv::processPacket(const Pkt4Ptr& pkt).

It's ready for review on the trac4108 branch (of github).

The most important change is 0a107ba0eaf00f6bcf2146392b2e68c3069317a1. I separated it from the next commit (which is only for editorial fixup) so the major change is easier to understand.

eade7b958d9ad19943be84c8f42513995bcf5f71 is an unrelated fix that I happened to notice. I believe this is correct, but if this is controversial we can revert it.

Read the code: there were two related changes since it was written:

  • the sent hook has the query as argument (updated)
  • there is a global try to catch unexpected exception: IMHO we should introduce a new method named run_one() and call it as the body of the first try (not yet done: require comments about this idea).

A final note: in the DHCPv4-over-DHCPv6 context the final sendPacket() outside processPacket().

Addressed the second point (try stuff) in the #4266 ticket so now #4108 is ready for review.

  • Owner changed from tomek to fdupont

I reviewed the changes on origin/trac4108 (internal repo) and have several comments:

Comment for run(): s/processPakcet/processPacket/
Comment in processPacket():
s/increase type specific packets/increase type specific statistic/

I also updated AUTHORS file to reflect Jinmei's contribution.

This branch was based on an older master and there were couple other changes on master. It would be useful to do git rebase before merging and then re-review the changes. Actually, I did rebase trac4108 and pushed as trac4108_rebase.

Please verify that it is ok. If it is, please apply those two changes above and merge.
