In this paper we present a design case study in configuring our protocol processor architecture to meet the performance requirements of IPv6 routing at gigabit speeds. Our methodology makes it possible to make fast reliable analyses of the problem on a high level and to find its key bottlenecks and design constraints. Based on the analyses we suggest architectural configurations for the target application. The best configurations can then be further analyzed in more detailed system-level simulations and physi…
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
