Since the Minix VFS is fully asynchronous and the LwIP server supports the asynchronous protocol, we would like to extend the asynchronous communication to the network drivers. Although they use asynchronous send to communicate with the LwIP/inet servers, the protocol is mostly synchronous. However, we have a replacement for the senda() and recv() pair which, in contrast, has a very little overhead, can be used across multiple cores with even less overhead and allows components to run in parallel.
The task is :
The goal is to dramatically improve the network stack performance and deliver gigabit bitrates.
