Network intrusion detection systems (NIDS) are becoming an important tool for protecting critical information and infrastructure. The quality of a NIDS is described by the percentage of true attacks detected combined with the number of false alerts. However, even a high-quality NIDS algorithm is not effective if its processing cost is too high, since the(More)
One of the major design decisions when developing a new microprocessor is determining the target pipeline depth and clock rate since both factors interact closely with one another. The optimal pipeline depth of a processor has been studied before, but the impact of the memory system on pipeline performance has received less attention. This study analyzes(More)
As a result of technology trends towards multi-gigahertz processors, the I/O system is becoming a critical bottleneck for many applications. Interrupts are a major aspect of most device drivers. Characterizing interrupt performance and its relation to architectural trends is important for understanding and improving I/O subsystem performance. Kernel(More)
