Container based solution is becoming more and more popular in academia. It remains to be a big challenge to accelerate container networking. VPP has demonstrated excellent performance on packet processing. There are several solutions in VPP targeting this problem. In order to bring the best packet I/O acceleration technology into fdio/VPP, we will share our practice and analysis on several share-memory-based approaches -- SSVM, virtio/vhost and netmap pipe. The presentation will cover the following:

- Describe how to integrate these solutions for container networking;
- Deep dive on those solutions, like feature set, ring layout,
cache/memory access pattern, notification mechanism, compatibility etc;
- Demonstrate the performance comparison under different use cases.

It’s helpful to understand the importance of leveraging a consistent/solo packet I/O engine for IPC.
