FALL 2012 Internet2 Member meeting
October 02, 2012, 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM
Location: Salon 5

Web10G is the successor to the Web100 project; an initiative to instrument the TCP stack and present this data to users. While Web100 has enjoyed wide spread adoption in diagnosing networking performance, its design precludes it from inclusion in the mainstream production Linux kernels. Web10G's design addresses the issues in Web100 by leveraging an ABI based on NetLink and a streamlined API to facilitate easier creation and porting of Web10G applications. Moreover, Web10G elevates the instrumentation within Web100 to proposed standards, by implementing the RFC 4898 specification. In this meeting we will introduce Web10G, discuss the current status, and lay out our development road map. Since community input is crucial to this project we will have an open discussion following the presentation. We encourage participants to discuss their ideas regarding advanced diagnostics and applications that might benefit from an instrumented TCP stack. Lunch served on Mezzanine level.

The Web10G is happy to announce that we've ported the kernel patches forward to Linux 2.6.39 and Linux 3.0. We've also been able to fix a few bugs along the way so if you are interested in trying out Web10G we strongly suggest using the most recent patch sets. That being said, the bugs were only causing a few statistics to be reported incorrectly and were not causing panics.
