High-performance network hardware is advancing, with multi-gigabit link bandwidths and sub-microsecond switch latencies. Network-interface hardware also continues to evolve, although the design space remains lar ge and diverse. One critical abstraction, a simple, portable, and general-purpose communications interface, is required to make ef fective use of these increasingly high-performance networks and their capable interfaces. Without a new interface, the software overheads of existing ones… CONTINUE READING
