This paper argues that the lack of explicit support for non-volatile main memory (NVMM) in network stacks fundamentally limits application performance. NVMM devices have been integrated into general-purpose OSes by providing familiar file-based interfaces and efficient byte-granularity access by bypassing page caches. However, this powerful property cannot be fully utilized unless network stacks also support it and applications exploit such support. This requires a thoroughly new network stack… CONTINUE READING
