As an experiment in protocol optimizations, the authors undertook to improve the performance of a stateless protocol, namely the user datagram protocol (UDP) in the 4.3 BSD Unix kernel. The authors describe the successful optimizations that were done, along with measurements that shows a UDP performance improvement of between 25-35% on CISC and RISC systems, and overall kernal improvement of between 12% and 18%
