Fundamentals of Multicore: Operating Systems for Telecom/Networking Applications
This white paper provides a tutorial like overview of the fundamental issues that apply to multicore software operating systems implementation for the telecom/ networking space. It starts with consideration of the different generic application processing classes in telecom/networking (e.g. control plane, data plane). It then considers the mapping of these processing requirements to the two primary software processing models for multicore (e.g. SMP, AMP, etc).
