HKG18-110 - net_mdev: Fast path user space I/O

Session ID: HKG18-110 Session Name: HKG18-110 - net_mdev: Fast path user space I/O Speaker: Ilias Apalodimas Track: Networking

Session Summary

User space I/O offers significant speedup potential for data plane and other high-performance applications, but at the high cost of writing and maintaining separate device drivers. Building on the existing kernel mediated device framework originally introduced to support GPUs, net_mdev extends this support to network I/O, requiring only minor changes to existing kernel drivers. Applications, in turn, need only provide “mini drivers” to handle the performance I/O paths in user space while leaving control operations in the kernel. —————————————————
