Can User-Level Protocols Take Advantage of Multi-CPU NICs?

  title={Can User-Level Protocols Take Advantage of Multi-CPU NICs?},
  author={Piyush Shivam and Pete Wyckoff and Dhabaleswar K. Panda},
User-level protocols and their implementations on smart and programmable network interface cards (NICs) have been alleviating the communication bottleneck for high speed interconnets . Most of the user-level protocols developed so far have been based on single-CPU NICs. One of the more popular current generation Gigabit Ethernet NICs includes two CPUs, though. This raises an open challenge whether performance of user-level protocols can be improved by taking advantage of a multi-CPU NIC. In… CONTINUE READING
