What is functional parallelism? How it can be applied to TCP for High speed protocol processing? I would like some related papers.
This is what we found from around the Web:
2.3.2. Functional Parallelism
"This kind of parallelism is based on different functional blocks in your application. The idea is simple: The application is split into separate processing units, that communicate with a fixed number other units in such a way that the output of one part serves as the input of another part. Thus we can visualize such a system as a set of nodes that are connected by pipes in which data only flow in one direction."
Here's a presentation:
"A Case for Functional Parallelism" http://murl.microsoft.com/videos/cmhc/leaders7/7-patil_OnDemand_150_50K_176x144Slides.htm
And this from IBM:
