Beyond Softnet. Alexey Kuznetsov. The current 2. Linux is also used extensively in Internet packet forwarding services such as firewalls and routers etc. Linux has a very modular packet processing framework based on the ingress and egress Traffic Control Framework as well as the Netfilter IP firewalling architecture. While the Linux framework for "plugging in" packet services is very flexible, and very much proven in the real world, for Linux to be considered a strong Network Operating System, robustness under all conditions including severe overload is a key requirement that must be met.
Our work is to further improve Linux to have the following attributes:. Robustness at any input rate and any number of input devices. Controlled and low Latency. Provide fairness in greedy network when supporting many interfaces under overload. We discuss the problems, solutions and provide experimental results in our attempts to deal with these issues. While the focus is on using a PC as a router, the solutions provided are applicable to Linux in use in all aspects as a network device such as a server.
