9780120884773: Network Algorithmics,: An Interdisciplinary Approach to Designing Fast Networked Devices (The Morgan Kaufmann Series in Networking)

In designing a network device, you make dozens of decisions that affect the speed with which it will perform-sometimes for better, but sometimes for worse. Network Algorithmics provides a complete, coherent methodology for maximizing speed while meeting your other design goals.

Author George Varghese begins by laying out the implementation bottlenecks that are most often encountered at four disparate levels of implementation: protocol, OS, hardware, and architecture. He then derives 15 solid principles-ranging from the commonly recognized to the groundbreaking-that are key to breaking these bottlenecks.

The rest of the book is devoted to a systematic application of these principles to bottlenecks found specifically in endnodes, interconnect devices, and specialty functions such as security and measurement that can be located anywhere along the network. This immensely practical, clearly presented information will benefit anyone involved with network implementation, as well as students who have made this work their goal.

· Presents techniques suitable specifically for endnodes, including Web servers.
· Presents techniques suitable specifically for interconnect devices, including routers, bridges, and gateways.
· Written as a practical guide for implementers but full of valuable insights for students, teachers, and researchers.

Book Description:

An interdisciplinary approach to applying principles for efficient implementation in network devices, addressing and offering solutions to the problem of network implementation bottlenecks.

From the Back Cover:

"George Varghese has had a remarkable impact on the real world of networking with his algorithmic innovations over many years. The networking research and development community is fortunate that he has now distilled his knowledge in this very readable, insightful, and much-needed book."
--Bruce Davie, Cisco Fellow, Cisco Systems

"This book nicely describes implementation tricks for building fast networking stacks, particularly in routers. This is a much needed book, I don't know of any other that covers this sort of implementation advice. George Varghese has invented several techniques to help speed up the Internet and in his book he provides interesting insight into this, and much more."
--Radia Perlman, Distinguished Engineer, Sun Microsystems
