OpenBSD network developers are doing some great work at modernizing and improving the network stack. But even if you're following tech@, it might be tricky to understand what's going on.
So I decided to start writing articles about our show. Since the basement of our SMP work is the routing table, here's a first article about the performances of the new default algorithm: ART.
[Ed note: ART is short for "Allotment Routing Table".]
Follow the link, and you will find an explanation and some test results from the ongoing work in modernizing and SMPifying the network stack, written by one of the developers most intimately involved in the process.
Martin hints that this promises to be the first instalment in a series. We will be looking forward to future, pieces, Martin!
