Programming the Data Path in Network Processor-Based Routers
Michael E. Kounavis, Andrew T. Campbell, Stephen T. Chou and John Vicente
Abstract
In this paper, we present the design, implementation and evaluation of NetBind, a high performance, flexible and scalable binding tool for dynamically constructing data paths in network processor-based routers. The methodology that underpins NetBind balances the flexibility of network programmability against the need to process and forward packets at line speeds.
