• Effective Search Strategies for Application-Independent Speedup in UDP Demultiplexing 

      Dixon, Joseph T.; Calvert, Kenneth L. (Georgia Institute of Technology, 1997)
      We present UDP datagram demultiplexing techniques that can yield potentially substantial application-independent performance gains over BSD-derived UDP implementations. Our demultiplexing strategies exploit local host ...
    • ICCCN '96 published/short version Increasing Demultiplexing Efficiency in TCP/IP Network Servers 

      Dixon, Joseph T.; Calvert, Kenneth L. (Georgia Institute of Technology, 1996)
      This paper shows how software caches and hashing to multiple PCB (protocol control block) lists can increase demultiplexing efficiency in TCP/IP network server hosts. We implemented six algorithms and ...
    • Tuning TCP and UDP Demultiplexing 

      Dixon, Joseph T.; Calvert, Kenneth L. (Georgia Institute of Technology, 1998)
      Large servers that handle many hundreds of simultaneous clients are becoming more and more important to the Internetwork infrastructure, from Web servers and caches to DNS servers. As the number of clients simultaneously ...
