The first version of eBPF hardware offload was merged into the Linux kernel in October 2016 and became part of Linux v4.9. For the last two years the project has been growing and evolving to integrate more closely with the core kernel infrastructure and enable more advanced use cases. This talk will explain the internals of the kernel architecture of the offload and how it allows seamless execution of unmodified eBPF datapaths in HW.
Netronome was privileged to present a half day tutorial on host data plane acceleration at ACM SIGCOMM in Budapest on August 20, 2018. The tutorial introduced attendees to models for host data plane acceleration and provided an in-depth understanding of SmartNIC deployment models at hyperscale cloud vendors and telecom service providers. An emphasis was given throughout the tutorial to open source resources available for research and product development.
