Discussing an I/O Framework to Accelerate Improvements in Application I/O Performance
SESSION: Discussing an I/O Framework to Accelerate Improvements in Application I/O Performance
EVENT TYPE: Birds of a Feather
TIME: 12:15PM - 1:15PM
SESSION LEADER(S):Paul Grun, Sean Hefty
In many cases, server I/O comprises a complex dance across a well-defined interface between an application and the underlying network. The common practice has been for coders to take the I/O interfaces as a given and to code to them at some cost in terms of application performance. This BoF brings application developers together with the open source networking community to discuss whether application I/O can be improved through a framework of interfaces allowing developers to achieve significant improvements in I/O efficiency with minimal effort. The outcome will provide direction to drive forward the development of open source I/O software.
