Network Buffer Allocation in the FreeBSD Operating System
This paper outlines the current structure of network data buffers in FreeBSD and explains their allocator's initial implementation. The current common usage patterns of network data buffers is then examined along with usage statistics for some of the allocator's supporting API routines. Finally, the improvement of the allocation framework to support SMP in FreeBSD 5.x is outlined and an argument is made to extend the general-purpose allocator to support some of the specifics of network data buffer semantics.
