Packet Processing With Blocking For Bursty Traffic on Multi-Thread Network Processor

Free registration required

Executive Summary

It is well-known that there are bursty accesses in network traffic. It means a burst of packets with the same meaningful headers are usually received by routers at the same time. With such traffic, routers usually perform the same computations and access the same memory location repeatedly. To utilize this characteristic of network traffic, many cache schemes are proposed to deal with the bursty access patterns. However, in the multi-thread network processor based routers, the existing cache schemes will not suit to the bursty traffic.
