The Importance of Non-Data Touching Processing Overheads in TCP/IP

  title={The Importance of Non-Data Touching Processing Overheads in TCP/IP},
  author={Jonathan S. Kay and Joseph Pasquale},
We present detailed measurements of various processing overheads of the TCP/IP and UDP/IP protocol stacks on a DECstation 5000/200 running the Ultrix 4.2a operating system. These overheads include data-touching operations, such as the checksum computation and data movement, which are well known to be major time consumers. In this study, we also considered overheads due to non-data touching operations, such as network buffer manipulation, protocol-specific processing, operating system functions… CONTINUE READING
