          Multiqueue Networking Developments in the Linux Kernel

 As horizontal scaling of even the most basic desktop systems continues
 onward, taking advantage of this ever growing CPU power in the
 networking requires real change.

 By way of a combination of hardware and software facilities, we can
 distribute the packet processing work across the available CPU
 resources in the system.  Once the ability to steer traffic to CPUs
 exists in the kernel, the next issue to tackle is making sure such
 steering decisions are done intelligently.

 This talk will cover the work that has been done in the Linux kernel
 networking over the past two years to support multiqueue networking
 hardware, and the work that is planned for the future.  TX and RX
 multiqueue facilities in the kernel will be discussed, as well as
 future changes that will make for application based traffic steering.
