Accepted talks: (All listed: https://www.netdev01.org/sessions )
1) Breaking Open Linux Switching Drivers by Andy Gospodarek
Andy will talk about taking an evolutionary path of a compromise
to integrate between vendor SDKs and the Linux kernel for hardware
offload. Graphics cards all over again? Come and find out.
2) Weighing Three Methods of Scaling UDP Applications by Alan Dekok
Alan, the maintainer of FreeRadius, has had to battle UDP for years.
In this talk he will describe his experiences on 3 different approaches
he has recently taken to try and scale UDP applications on Linux
3) TC Classifier Action Subsystem by Jamal Hadi Salim
Jamal will describe the tc classifier-action subsystem in details (A
decade too late?). He claims to be inspired by two talks at netdev01
which refer to this subsystem. He also claims it is a better
architecture than OF and P4. Come beat up on him.
4) MLAG (or Multi-Chassis Link aggregation Group) integration with
Linux by Matty Kadosh
Mellanox MLAG implementation at https://github.com/open-ethernet/MLAG
will be discussed in this talk. Matty will talk about experiences and
will try to convince us that it is time to mainstream MLAG.
5) MLAG on Linux - Lessons Learned by Scott Emery
Cumulus Networks has extensive MLAG deployment on Linux using hardware
offloads on high speed hardware.
They have had to battle dragons in many dungeons and slay
many monsters along the way. Come hear all that experience in one talk.
Accepted Tutorials (All listed: https://www.netdev01.org/sessions )
1)Hardware Accelerating Linux Network Functions by
Roopa Prabhu and Toshiaki Makita
Everything you ever wanted to know about using Linux bridging
variations for virtualization, data centre & enterprise, L3, ACLs and
more. How well do you know how to use bridge/brctl/ip/ethtool and
their friends to setup a desired network(bridge, SRIOV, Macvlan etc)?
Roopa and Toshiaki will try to guide you through this vast ocean of
knowledge. You will get to learn about how to learn the theory
and practise and beauty of using these toolsets consistently
whether on a NIC, offloaded-NIC or multi-terabit capacity switch
More coming in future updates.
If youve got this far reading - please go and register.
