The IX Operating System: Combining Low Latency, High Throughput, and Efficiency in a Protected Dataplane


The conventional wisdom is that aggressive networking requirements, such as high packet rates for small messages and μs-scale tail latency, are best addressed outside the kernel, in a user-level networking stack. We present ix, a dataplane operating system that provides high I/O performance and high resource efficiency while maintaining the protection and… (More)
