Description Proceedings of INET'93, International Networking Conference Internet Society
It is a well known fact that the performance bottleneck of modern high speed networks is located in the end systems. Reasons are the complexity of the applied protocols and the embedding of protocols in the end systems. Da CaPo (D ynamic Configuration of Pr otocols) provides an environment which allows the dynamic configuration of protocols with respect to the application requirements and the properties of the offered network services. The goal of the configuration is to reduce the protocol complexity and increase the performance. Modules serve as building blocks for the protocol configuration. Common software engineering principles like encapsulation and information hiding as well as a unified module interface allow the unrestricted configuration of modules to protocols. The runtime environment of Da CaPo links modules to protocols in one UNIX process and realizes an efficient data transport inside the end system because operations reducing performance like data copying or UNIX conte...
