Web10G: Meeting the Promises of Web100
Time 10/02/12 12:00PM-01:00PM
Web10G is the successor to the Web100 project; an initiative to instrument the TCP stack and present this data to users. While Web100 has enjoyed wide spread adoption in diagnosing networking performance, its design precludes it from inclusion in the mainstream production Linux kernels. Web10G's design addresses the issues in Web100 by leveraging an ABI based on NetLink and a streamlined API to facilitate easier creation and porting of Web10G applications. Moreover, Web10G elevates the instrumentation within Web100 to proposed standards, by implementing the RFC 4898 specification.
In this meeting we will introduce Web10G, discuss the current status, and lay out our development road map. Since community input is crucial to this project we will have an open discussion following the presentation. We encourage participants to discuss their ideas regarding advanced diagnostics and applications that might benefit from an instrumented TCP stack.
Lunch served on Mezzanine level.
