The authors discuss their efforts at understanding the design of network adapter subsystems. Their goal has been to understand design issues, define metrics for characterizing performance in a comprehensive manner, and examine the impact of design choices on the performance of the adapter subsystem. They look at current workstation designs and the implementation of the datalink layer in the drivers of operating systems such as Unix and VMS
