Studies of the performance of interrupt-driven operating systems in high-speed networks have brought forth the problem of receive livelock. Device hybrid interrupt-polling and interrupt coalescing are two common techniques used in general-purpose operating systems to mitigate this problem. Adaptive schemes based on local knowledge have been proposed for each technique above. However, all the schemes proposed so far are designed using heuristics. In addition, the capabilities of the proposed… CONTINUE READING
