We explore processor-cache affinity scheduling of parallel network protocol processing, in a setting in which protocol processing executes on a shared-memory multiprocessor concurrently with a general workload of non-protocol activity. We find affinity-based scheduling can significantly reduce the communication delay associated with protocol processing, enabling the host to support a greater number of concurrent streams and to provide higher maximum throughput to individual streams. In addition… CONTINUE READING
