Linux Layer7 Switching

Description

Linux Layer7 Switchings main goal is to provide a performant framework for Layer7 switching. Layer7 switching is driving a low-level engine using networking design to speed-up forwarding of data stream. Implementation in this project is split into a userspace daemon and a low-level kernelspace forwarding engine. Userspace daemon is responsible for scheduling and switching decisions. Kernelspace forwarding engine is responsible for forwarding stream and using TCP-Splicing scheme. TCP-Splicing is the postponement of the connection between the client and the server in order to obtain sufficient information to make a routing decision. This project is close to Linux Virtual Server project since lot of discusions on this topics have been made online and offline LVS project. Why using L7SW ? This project will provide you a way to switch incoming clients requests using pattern matching. A quick example is to drive a web server farm by locating specific content on dedicated servers (video, audio, images, ...) while virtual server exported to end user is uniq. Whats New in This Release: · The kernel module was backported to Linux version 2.4. · The Linux 2.6 kernel module was extended to support kernel versions lower than 2.6.19. · libtcpsplice has been extended to export more helpers. · A locking issue has been fixed while splicing sockets. · HAProxy has been extended to support tcp_splicing module..
