Offloading OVS Flow Processing Using eBPF- William Tu, VMware

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

This work presents the design and implementation of an OVS prototype using eBPF, called OVS-eBPF. The OVS-eBPF aims to replace the kernel datapath of the current OVS implementation, and offloads the flow parsing, matching, and action execution in an eBPF program residing in Linux kernel. As a result, OVS-eBPF removes the dependency of OVS userspace code from the OVS kernel module. In addition, OVS-eBPF takes advantages of XDP (eXpress Data Path), a new fast path recently added to the kernel, and offloads certain part of the OVS datapath logic into the driver level. The preliminary performance evaluation will be presented.
