By ndroux on Jun 08, 2006
Project Nemo is now an official OpenSolaris project. Nemo, a.k.a. GLDv3, is a high-performance device driver framework which provides 802.3ad Link Aggregation and VLAN support for off-the-shelf device drivers. The following drivers are currently based on Nemo (a.k.a. GLDv3) framework: bge, e1000g, xge, nge, rge, ixgb. Project Nemo was also a recipient of Sun's 2006 Chairman Award for Innovation.
Nemo also kicks-a\*\* in the performance area with features such as direct function calls and packet chaining between IP and device driver, IP controlling the NIC and dynamically blanking interrupts, and support for stateless hardware offloading.
