TCP Onloading for Data Center Servers
November 2004 (vol. 37 no. 11)
pp. 48-58
While research in TCP/IP processing has been under way for several decades, the increasing networking needs of server workloads and evolving server architectures point to the need to explore TCP/IP acceleration opportunities. Researchers at Intel Labs are experimenting with mechanisms thataddress system and memory stall time overheads. They are also studying the effects of interrupt and connection level affinity on TCP/IP processing performance.

Further, they have begun exploring mechanisms to support latency-critical TCP/IP usage models such as storage over IP and clustered systems. The goal is to identify the right level of hardware support for communication on future CMP processors and server platforms.
