Abstract76293S With network bandwidth increasing more rapidly than processor speed for the past two decades, a serious performance problem exists for the transport, storage, and retrieval of large amounts of scientific data. This project will identify current performance bottlenecks, and develop a high-performance, processing and forwarding engine-hardware architecture that will handle data rates of 10 Gbps and beyond. Phase I developed a software profile and determinged system performance for a scaled-down version (1Gbps) of the Grid Network Session Processing and Forwarding Engine (GNSPFE). The results were used to extrapolate the design of the 10 Gbps Engine. Phase II will develop a prototype 10 Gbps GNSPFE and verify its peformance on a transoceanic network. Commercial Applications And Other Benefits as described by the awardee: The Grid Network Session Processing and Forwarding Engine should become an enabling technology, providing economical 10 Gbps service to high-performance cluster file systems. In addition, the technology should find use as a Grid network solution for file servers, on-demand video servers, and game servers.
