Abstract / Description of output

Emerging accelerated network devices, including SmartNICs (SNICs) with general-purpose CPUs-such as ARM, create new sources of queuing and processing delay in the hardware, network stack, and application. We therefore argue for the need of a framework to measure the application and network stack performance in SNIC-based host systems. This paper describes our methodology to build up such framework focusing on the regular Linux network stack executed on either host, or SNIC CPUs. Our framework shows how SNICs impact end-to-end latency, throughput, and multi-core scalability based on the SNIC architecture, SNIC CPU performance, and even the applications themselves.
