By Klaus Wehrle, Frank Pahlke, Hartmut Ritter, Daniel Muller, Marc Bechler

This specified Linux networking tutorial/reference by means of specialists presents readers with a realistic review and knowing of the implementation of networking protocols within the Linux kernel. The booklet indicates how networking habit and protocols could be carried out in the Linux working process. creation to the Linux kernel, in most cases targeting the impending kernel model 2.4 but in addition legitimate for model 2.2 kernels. The association of the ebook follows the TCP/IP layering version, starting with the kernel's community gadget drivers, carrying on with with link-layer protocols resembling PPP, and at last giving an outline of all center protocols of the TCP/IP protocol family members. extra supplementary protocols akin to RSVP, IP safeguard, and cellular IP also are coated. For somebody drawn to Linux or networking, together with community programmers and directors.

Languages, Design Methods, and Tools for Electronic System Design: Selected Contributions from FDL 2015

This booklet brings jointly a range of the simplest papers from the eighteenth variation of the discussion board on specification and layout Languages convention (FDL), which happened on September 14-16, 2015, in Barcelona, Spain. FDL is a well-established overseas discussion board dedicated to dissemination of analysis effects, functional reviews and new principles within the program of specification, layout and verification languages to the layout, modeling and verification of built-in circuits, complicated hardware/software embedded structures, and mixed-technology structures.

But 10 ms is too long to allow [5] 10 ms corresponds to the transmission time for approximately eighty packets of maximum length over a 100Mbps network. • del_timer() deletes a timer_list structure from the timer queue. The corresponding function will then no longer run. • init_timer() initializes a timer_list structure. This function should always be called when a timer_list structure was created. 2 Using the APIC for High-resolution Timers The current Linux kernel does not support any freely programmable timers with an accuracy in the microsecond range.

The I/O APIC is a separate component, collecting external interrupts and distributing them to the set of processors of a system. 4 [BoCe00]. The I/O APIC connects to the local APIC components of each installed processor over an interrupt Controller Communication Bus (ICC). Figure 2-9. Use of an Advanced Programmable Interrupt Controller (APIC) in multiprocessor systems. The internal timer of a local APIC is the most interesting part for the tasks discussed in this section. The internal timer works in bus-clock accuracy and can be initialized to a specific value.

The timer functionality introduced next is based on the APIC component (in short APIC timer) to avoid the problems outlined above. The UKA-APIC timer was developed at the Institute for Telematics at the University of Karlsruhe, Germany, and can be downloaded from [ObWe01]. Part I: The Linux Kernel 49 50 Part I: The Linux Kernel Technical Basis of the APIC Timer Intel's x86 processor family originally used the PIC 8259A Programmable Interrupt Controller to manage triggered interrupts. It was used since the first personal computer at the beginning of the eighties and met its tasks without problem.
