The IXP network processor [1] architecture is designed to process packets at high rates where inter-arrival times between packets are sometimes less than the individual memory access latencies. To keep up with such high arrival rates, IXP presents a novel architecture consisting of a collection of multithreaded, multiprocessors with an explicit memory hierarchy. Such an architecture poses interesting challenges when an application developer wishes to develop software for a wide range of… CONTINUE READING
