vblade-15-socketfilter.2.README 499 B

  1. This patch uses the Berkeley Packet Filter (BPF) feature so that the
  2. kernel only hands packets to a vblade process when they match its
  3. shelf and slot address.
  4. Without this patch, each vblade process would be woken up only to
  5. discard an AoE packet destined for a different vblade running on the
  6. same host.
  7. This patch currently introduces a build dependency on the headers from
  8. libpcap. Usually a Linux distribution will include these headers in a
  9. package with a name something like "libpcap-dev".
