EuroBSDCon 2008 took place in Strasbourg, France, and included many interesting talks on the BSD operating system family. On this page, you can find my slides from the conference.
20081019-eurobsdcon-networking.pdf - FreeBSD Network Stack Optimizations for Modern Hardware (EuroBSDCon 2008 Full Conference)
The arrival of high CPU core density, with commodity quad-core notebooks and 32-core servers, combined with 10gbps networking have transformed network design principles for operating systems. This talk will describe changes in the FreeBSD 6.x, 7.x, and forthcoming 8.x network stacks required to exploit multiple cores and serve 10gbps networks. The goal of the session will be to introduce the audience to general strategies used to improve performance, their rationales, and their impact on applications and users:
