UltraSPARC T2 (Niagara 2) and Solaris crypto

Guest Author
I am thrilled to see the cryptographic performance of the UltraSPARC T2 (Niagara 2) processor highlighted
in today's launch. I would highly recommend listening to the audio clip href="http://www.sun.com/featured-articles/2007-0807/feature/index.jsp"> in this page featuring Lawrence Spracklen
who talks about the crypto features of this processor.
I have been working on making the Solaris crypto framework take full advantage
of the hardware crypto acceleration. We focused both on reducing the latency and
improving the scalability. One interesting fix is 65270071 and the follow up fix 6533554 . Maintaining good scalability while running with 64 threads means we can get the best overall crypto throughput.
