ROFL, and this is my position on this topic as well. TOE is just junk, and we'll reject any attempt to put that garbage into the kernel.

We shouldn't be forced to refine people's non-sensible ideas which we'll not support anyways. If TOE is supported on Windows only, I happily welcome that.

I just described a design that -we already support-. It's generic scalable model that has application outside the acronym "TOE". Did you read my message, or just see 'TOE' and nothing else? Sun used

Put simply, the "ultimate TOE card" would be a card with network ports, a generic CPU (arm, mips, whatever.), some RAM, and some flash. This card's "firmware" is the Linux kernel, configured to run a

I think a better goal is "offload 90+% of the net stack cost" which is effectively what TSO does on the send side. This is why these discussions are so circular. If we want to discuss something speci

To do 10 Gbps Ethernet with Jeff's approach, wouldn't you need a 5-10 GHz processor on the card? Sounds expensive. Do you need a 5-10 Ghz Intel server to handle 10 Gbps ethernet? Yes. (Or a 4-way ~2G

My view on TOE is that it is brought up in response to the fact that when leading edge network technologies are brought out (GigE a few years ago, 10 GigE now), hosts can't keep up. Specifically, the

I've never understood why people are so interested in off-loading networking. Isn't that just a multi-processor system where you can't use any of the network processor cycles for anything else? And,

The typical definition of TOE is "offload 90+% of the net stack", as opposed to "TCP assist", which is stuff like TSO. I think a better goal is "offload 90+% of the net stack cost" which is effective
