For software architects and engineers at networking companies, this book explains the framework for developing data plane applications for the Intel IXP2XXX family of network processors. From comprehensive descriptions of applications in various Intel IXP target market segments, you learn how the Intel Internet Exchange Architecture (Intel IXA) supports your design for network processor applications. Each case study shows you how to do the detailed performance analysis and decide associated design tradeoffs.
This nuts-and-bolts explanation of best known methods shows you how to build software applications on IXP2XXX network processors. Many adopters of this new technology struggle with performance analysis and software reuse for network applications, so the book shows you how to get the most benefit from field-tested methods of analysis and reuse. This book shows you how to use the microblock framework to build specifically targeted data plane applications and how to use performance analysis methodology to estimate the performance of an application before you build it.
