Introduction

I've been in the kernel networking group at Sun for about 6 years now, working on various aspects of routing (in.routed, zebra/quagga, forwarding table performance). In the past, I have worked in diverse companies on various aspects of networking, including Parametric Technology Corp where I worked on interfaces to SUNRPC libraries for CAD tools, in DEC/Compaq where I was doing kernel networking for Tru64 UNIX (IPv6, iptunnels, 802.3ad, kernel routing), and even briefly at LANL where I worked on PVM/MPI.

 My current passion is the Surya project, where Sangeeta Misra and I are attempting to stream-line the packet-processing path, while replacing the existing forwarding-table data-structures/code with the FreeBSD radix tree. Check out the details in the design document.

My other pastime is to train myself to become a dtrace "power user". I'm putting together a DTrace Networking Cookbook Contributions of all shapes and sizes are invited!

Hi,
Stumbled on your blog whilst trying to get a e1000g to stay at 1000/full. This DTrace Networking Cookbook of which you speak sounds interesting - is it on a Sun internal site?

Thanks,
Tom
