Rate limiting is an important primitive for managing server network resources. Unfortunately, software-based rate limiting suffers from limited accuracy and high CPU overhead, and modern NICs only support a handful of rate limiters. We present SENIC, a NIC design that can natively support 10s of thousands of rate limiters—100x to 1000x the number available(More)
This paper presents a practical approach to rapidly introducing new dataplane functionality into networks: End-hosts embed tiny programs into packets to actively query and manipulate a network's internal state. We show how this "tiny packet program" (TPP) interface gives end-hosts unprecedented visibility into network behavior, enabling them to work with(More)
Despite network monitoring and testing being critical for computer networks, current solutions are both extremely expensive and inflexible. Into this lacuna we launch the Open Source Network Tester, a fully open source traffic generator and capture system. Our prototype implementation on the NetFPGA-10G supports 4 × 10 Gb/s traffic generation across(More)
We present J<scp>uggler</scp>, a practical reordering resilient network stack for datacenters that enables any packet to be sent on any path at any level of priority. J<scp>uggler</scp> adds functionality to the Generic Receive Offload layer at the entry of the network stack to put packets in order in a best-effort fashion. J<scp>uggler</scp>'s design(More)
To make networks more reliable, enormous resources are poured into all phases of the network-equipment lifecycle. The process starts early in the design phase when simulation is used to verify the correctness of a design, and continues through manufacturing and perhaps months of rigorously trials. With over 7,000 Internet RFCs and hundreds of IEEE(More)
