Abstract

The growth of compute-intensive applications causes an increasing demand for computing resources in both data centers and underlying networks. To satisfy these computing and networking demands, hardware-accelerated computing with GPUs and FPGAs becomes more and more prevalent. However, current approaches of accelerated Virtual Network Functions (VNF), typically based on PCIe accelerator cards, suffer from many superfluous data transfers between the memory of hosts and accelerator devices. In this work we propose “host bypassing” for chained hardware-accelerated network functions, which reduces mem- ory copying to a minimum, which increases throughput and reduces latency.
