A High-Performance Network Architecture for a PA-RISC Workstation

  title={A High-Performance Network Architecture for a PA-RISC Workstation},
  author={David Banks and Michael Prudence},
  journal={IEEE Journal on Selected Areas in Communications},
With current low-cost high-performance workstations, application-to-application throughput is limited more by host memory bandwidth than by the cost of protocol processing. Conventional network architectures are inefficient in their use of this memory bandwidth, because data is copied several times between the application and the network. As network speeds increase further, network architectures must be developed that reduce the demands on host memory bandwidth. In this paper, we discuss the… CONTINUE READING
