LPC

Linux Plumbers Conference 2018

Nov 13, 2018 - Nov 15, 2018 - Vancouver, BC, Canada

Join Netronome for this year’s Linux Plumbers Conference. Netronome is a Gold Sponsor and has several presenters at the LPC as well as the BPF Microconference.


Using BPF as an Abstraction for Switching, Nic Viljoen
eBPF (extended Berkeley Packet Filter) has been shown to be a flexible kernel construct used for a variety of use cases, such as load balancing, intrusion detection systems (IDS), tracing and many others. This talk is designed to explore the bottlenecks that exist in generalizing the application of eBPF further to both container switching as well as physical switching.

Topics that will be covered include proposals for container isolation through the use of features such as programmable RSS, the viability of physical switching using eBPF capable hardware as well as integrations with other subsystems or additional helper functions which may improve the possible functionality.

Please join Netronome on November 15 for the BPF Microconference featured at the Linux Plumbers Conference. Netronome will be holding three talks:

eBPF Debugging Infrastructure - Current Techniques and Additional Proposals
Speaker: Quentin Monnet, Senior Software Engineer

Efficient JIT to 32-bit Architectures Through Data Flow Analysis
Speaker: Jiong Wang, Senior Software Engineer

Using eBPF as a Heterogeneous Processing ABI
Speaker: Jakub Kicinski, Lead Software Engineer
