Packet scheduling in parallel forwarding systems is a hard problem. Two major goals of a scheduler that distributes incoming packets to multiple forwarding engines are to achieve high system utilization (by balancing the load evenly among the multiple engines) and to maintain packet ordering within individual flows. Additionally, from the viewpoint of the overall performance, the system should exhibit a good cache behavior by preserving temporal locality in the workload of each forwarding… CONTINUE READING
