While general-purpose processors have only recently employed chip multiprocessor (CMP) architectures, network processors (NPs) have used heterogeneous multi-core architectures since the late 1990s. NPs differ qualitatively from workstation and server CMPs in that they replicate many simple, highly efficient processor cores on a chip, rather than a small number of sophisticated superscalar CPUs. In this paper, we compare the performance of one such NP, the Intel IXP 2850, to that of the Intel… CONTINUE READING
