Introduction to Multithreading and Multiprocessing in the FreeBSD SMPng Network Stack (370 Kb)
EuroBSDCon 2005 took place in Basel, Switzerland
in November, 2005. Due to an injury, I was unable
to attend the conference itself, and my talks were
presented in absentia by Poul-Henning Kamp and Ed
Maste, who have my greatest appreciation!
The FreeBSD SMPng Project has spent the past five
years redesigning and reimplementing SMP support
for the FreeBSD operating system, moving from a
Giant-locked kernel to a fine-grained locking
implementation with greater kernel threading and
parallelism. This paper introduces the FreeBSD SMPng
Project, its architectural goals and implementation
approach. It then explores the impact of SMPng on
the FreeBSD network stack, including strategies for
integrating SMP support into the network stack,
locking approaches, optimizations, and challenges.
