Networking

Dynamically Extending the Corral with Native Code for High-Speed Packet Processing

Free registration required

Executive Summary

By combining the open kernel environment, a click-like software model known as corral and basic concepts of active networking, the authors allow third-party code to control the code organization of a network node at any level, including kernel and network card. They show how an active network environment was implemented and how this environment allows slow active code to control the code organization of the fast path. The underlying code is structured much like components in a 'Click'-router that may be connected or disconnected at runtime.
