Many current implementations of communication subsystems on workstation class computers transfer communication data to and from primary memory several times. This is due to software copying between user and operating system address spaces, presentation layer data conversion and other data manipulation functions. The consequence is that memory bandwidth is one of the major performance bottlenecks limiting high speed communication on these systems. We propose a communication subsystem… CONTINUE READING
