  • SmartNIC Data Plane Acceleration & Reconfiguration

    In this talk we outline a kernel and upstream centric approach to data plane acceleration using an upstream SmartNIC BPF JIT. This allows extended Berkeley Packet Filter (eBPF) bytecode to be transparently offloaded to the SmartNIC from either the Traffic Control (TC) or Express Data Path (XDP) hooks in the kernel and could be used for applications such as DoS protection, load balancing and software switching e.g Open vSwitch (OVS). We then follow this by outlining the proposed ICONICS OCP contribution related to an open approach for reconfiguration using directly compiled SmartNIC programs in situations where BPF bytecode alone is not sufficient to accommodate changing semantics in the network.
