The explosive growth in the performance of microprocessors and networks has created a new opportunity to reduce the latency of fine-grain communication. Microprocessor clock speeds are now approaching the gigahertz range. Network switch latencies have dropped to tens of nanoseconds. Unfortunately, this explosive growth also exposes processor accesses to the network interface (NI) as a critical bottleneck for fine-grain communication. Researchers have proposed several techniques, such as using… CONTINUE READING
