Ixia products provide comprehensive solutions for testing network infrastructures. These include high-speed (up to hundreds of Gbps) Ethernet setups, including routing/switching protocols and transport and application-level protocols, often imposing real-time requirements on the code that generates and processes data. Usually, enforcing such constraints involves writing special-purpose (e.g., architecture-specific) code; and, in our case, customizing Linux Kernel from Ixia Ports. As part of this Proof of Concept (PoC), we're looking to achieve the following: 1.Analyze the needs of Ixia L23 applications and provide a user implementation with a stock Linux Kernel for a few basic operations with virtual network interfaces 2.Become CPU architecture agnostic and enable to run on x86-64 and/or ARM (currently running on MIPS64).
