Converged Networking in the Data Center

Peter P. Waskiewicz Jr. (peter.p.waskiewicz.jr@intel.com)

The networking world in Linux has undergone some significant changes in the past two years. With the expansion of multiqueue networking, coupled with the growing abundance of multi-core computers with 10 Gigabit ethernet, the concept of efficiently converging different network flows becomes a real possibility.

This paper presents the concepts behind network convergence. Using the IEEE 802.1Qaz Priority Grouping and Data Center Bridging concepts to group multiple traffic flows, this paper will demonstrate how different types of traffic, such as storage and LAN traffic, can efficiently coexist on the same physical connection. With the support of multi-core systems and MSI-X, these different traffic flows can achieve latency and throughput comparable to the same traffic types' specialized adapters.
