A variety of proposals have been floated around the idea of accelerating the OVS datapath using hardware. This session intends to take a deeper look at partial offload (offloading the OVS classifier) and full offload (via flow-based classifier+actions offload, or via eBPF). The discussion will involve targeted use cases, hardware capabilities, determining when it's possible (and worthwhile) to push work down to hardware, software fallback mechanisms, and any other relevant topics.


Ethan Jackson

Ethan Jackson is a PhD student at Berkeley and a major contributor to Open vSwitch.

Nic Viljoen

Software Engineer, Netronome
Nic is a software engineer at Netronome. He is currently working on architecting transparent offload solutions, including transparent eBPF offload. He is also working with the CORD project on adding functionality to OVS, and is interested in using cls_bpf and XDP for analytics and acceleration.
