    In recent years, we have witnessed the emergence of high speed packet I/O frameworks, bringing unprecedented network performance to userspace. Using the Click modular router, we rst review and quantitatively compare several such packet I/O frameworks, showing their superiority to kernel-based forwarding. We then reconsider the issue of software packet processing, in the context of modern commodity... View full abstract»

    Previous research on consistent updates for distributed network configurations has focused on solutions for centralized networkconfiguration controllers. However, such work does not address the complexity of modern switch datapaths. Modern commodity switches expose opaque configuration mechanisms, with minimal guarantees for datapath consistency and with unclear configuration semantics. Furthermor... View full abstract»

    Network stacks currently implemented in operating systems can no longer cope with the packet rates offered by 10 Gbit Ethernet. Thus, frameworks were developed claiming to offer a faster alternative for this demand. These frameworks enable arbitrary packet processing systems to be built from commodity hardware handling a traffic rate of several 10 Gbit interfaces, entering a domain previously only...

    Packet classification is a building block in many network services such as routing, filtering, intrusion detection, accounting, monitoring, load-balancing and policy enforcement. Compression has gained attention recently as a way to deal with the expected increase of classifiers size. Typically, compression schemes try to reduce a classifier size while keeping it semantically-equivalent to its ori... View full abstract»

  • Parsing application layer protocol with commodity hardware for SDN

    The de facto implementation of Software Defined Networking (SDN), i.e., OpenFlow, only parses L2-L4 headers, which limits the use of SDN to employ control intelligence in application layer. In this paper, we advocate content parsing to empower SDN with finer grained control ability over traffic. Specifically, we propose a scalable content parser, called COPY, to identify and parse application laye... View full abstract»

    Configuring range based packet classification rules in network switches is crucial to all network core functionalities, such as firewalls and routing. However, OpenFlow, the leading management protocol for SDN switches, lacks the interface to configure range rules directly and only provides mask based rules, named flow entries. In this work we present, ORange, the first solution to multi dimension... View full abstract»

    Dynamic optical interconnects using fast Optical Circuit Switches (OCS) are emerging as a scalable and energy efficient alternative to increasing network demands. Initial concerns regarding slow switching speeds of OCSs were recently overcome, with prototypes enabling circuit setup in a few microseconds. This can potentially broaden the classes of traffic patterns that can be carried efficiently b... View full abstract»

    Due to the rapid growth of Internet, there is an increasing need for efficiently classifying packets with many header fields in large rule sets. For example, in Software Defined Networking (SDN), the OpenFlow table lookup can require 15 packet header fields to be examined. In this paper, we present several decomposition-based packet classification implementations with efficient optimization techni... View full abstract»

  • Virtual device passthrough for high speed VM networking

    Supporting network I/O at high packet rates in virtual machines is fundamental for the deployment of Cloud data centers and Network Function Virtualization. Historically, SR-IOV and hardware passthrough were thought as the only viable solution to reduce the high cost of virtualization. In previous work [15] we showed how even plain device emulation can achieve VM-to-VM speeds of millions of packet... View full abstract»

  • Reliably scalable name prefix lookup

    Name prefix lookup is a core building block of information-centric networking (ICN). In ICN hierarchical naming schemes, each packet has a name that consists of multiple variable-length name components, and packets are forwarded based on longest name prefix matching (LNPM). LNPM is challenging because names are longer than IP addresses and the namespace is unbounded. Recently proposed solutions ha... View full abstract»

    Data synchronization-long a staple in le systems-is emerging as a signicant communications primitive. In a distributed system, data synchronization resolves di erences among distributed sets of information. In named data networking (NDN), an information-centric communications architecture, data synchronization between multiple nodes is widely used to support basic services, such as public key dist...

    We show that the mechanisms used in the name data networking (NDN) and the original content centric networking (CCN) architectures may not detect Interest loops, even if the network in which they operate is static and no faults occur. Furthermore, we show that no correct Interest forwarding strategy can be defined that allows Interest aggregation and attempts to detect Interest looping by identify... View full abstract»

    With the growing number of proposed clean-slate redesigns of the Internet, the need for a medium that enables all stakeholders to participate in the realization, evaluation, and selection of these designs is increasing. We believe that the missing catalyst is a meta network architecture that welcomes most, if not all, clean-state designs on a level playing field, lowers deployment barriers, and le...

    This paper studies alternative Network-on-Chip architectures for emerging many-core chip multiprocessors, by exploring the following design options on mesh-based networks: Multiple physical networks (P), cores concentration (C), express channels (X), it widths (W), and virtual channels (V). We exhaustively evaluate all combinations of the afore-mentioned parameters (P, C, X, W, V), using the energ... View full abstract»

    In response to the critical challenges of the current Internet architecture and its protocols, a set of so-called clean slate designs has been proposed. Common among them is an addressing scheme that separates location and identity with self-certifying, flat and non-aggregatable address components. Each component is long, reaching a few kilobits, and would consume an amount of fast memory in data ... View full abstract»
