Empowering network operating systems with memory management techniques

Abstract

Similarly to computer operating systems which guarantee safe access to memory resources, Network Operating Systems shall grant SDN applications a reliable access to neatly organized flow table resources. This paper presents the architecture for a controller-agnostic Memory Management System and some of its functionalities that aim at improving flow table usage and preventing network misconfigurations. From the implementation perspective, this work discusses the applicability of the proposed system, a strategy to evaluate it and current open challenges.
