Algorithms and Architectures for Parallel Processing
Existing user-level network interfaces deliver high bandwidth, low latency performance to applications, but are typically unable to support diverse styles of communication and are unsuitable for use in multiprogrammed environments. Often this is because the network abstraction is presented at too high a level, and support for synchronisation is inflexible. In this paper we present a new primitive for in-band synchronisation: the Tripwire. Tripwires provide a flexible, efficient and scalabledoi:10.1142/9789812792037_0006 fatcat:oe5ojw6anndq3hdqr553nemoka
