Offloading OVS Flow Processing Using eBPF - William Tu, VMware
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.
