Setting buffer size when using UHD

Hi All,

How do I set the buffer size when using uhd::usrp::mimo_usrp ?

Per

The buffer size setting is used across all motherboards in the mimo
setup. So, if specified, its only specified once:
http://www.ettus.com/uhd_docs/manual/html/usrp2.html#resize-the-send-and-receive-buffers

If this is linux, I recommend setting sysctl and letting UHD
automatically pick the size.

sudo sysctl -w net.core.rmem_max=50000000

I read the page you refer to but I don’t understand. Is this correct ?

uhd::device_addr_t dev_addr;
dev_addr[“addr”] = “192.168.10.11 192.168.20.11”;
dev_addr[“addr”] = “192.168.10.11 192.168.20.11”;
dev_addr[“recv_buff_size”] = “1e4”;
d_mdev=uhd::usrp::mimo_usrp::make(dev_addr);

If this is linux, I recommend setting sysctl and letting UHD
automatically pick the size.

sudo sysctl -w net.core.rmem_max=50000000

Yes. But then I need to do change this value when depending on which
application I about to run or … ?

Is the receiver buffer size in bytes or samples ?

bytes

Its a direct proxy for SO_REVBUF socket option.

That should work, however, that is a very small buffer. Expect overflow.

50MB is half a second of buffering at full rate. The default behavior of
the UHD is to resize recv buffers to 50 MB. I think that is sufficient
for most applications.
