Ever Deeper with BPF – An Update on Hardware Offload Support

By Quentin Monnet | Nov 07, 2018

Netronome’s Agilio CX and FX SmartNICs are capable of running BPF programs, directly offloaded from the Linux kernel. This feature has been supported for a couple of years now. Several presentations of BPF hardware offload have been made by the BPF engineering team in conferences such as Netdev 1.2, Netdev 2.2 or even FOSDEM 2018, or in webinars such as our recent webinars on BPF just-in-time (JIT) compiler, offload internals, and tooling.

Netronome Open Source SDN Offload at FOSDEM

By Quentin Monnet | Feb 20, 2018

“L’union fait la force.“ “Unity makes strength,” in French: this is the motto of Belgium, and incidentally it perfectly applies to Open Source software, too. The eighteenth edition of FOSDEM, the Free and Open Source Software Developers’ European Meeting, was held as always in Brussels, the capital of that country, in early February.

Netdev Review: eBPF as a Multi-Purpose Tool for Programmable Networks

By Quentin Monnet | Nov 28, 2017

The 2.2 edition of the Netdev conference took place in Seoul, South Korea, in early November. The previous edition was covered by Nic on this blog, but he is too busy offloading JITted programs right now, so I will steal the spotlight this time around.
