Oh hear ye...
 
To one day get network hardware that has low latency and good queue management at gigE speeds or higher requires better hardware offloading techniques than the bulk notions like GRO and TSO that exist today. And it has long been obvious that the rate limiting + fq_codel techniques we now use successfully at sub 200mbit speeds do not scale higher well on cheap chips to handle #bufferbloat  . So the algorithms need to move into the chips, also.

******so... a brief commercial interruption****

I think the open source design method has worked spectacularly for software, and I think the same methods can work for hardware if only we can pull together larger communities to do the work, worldwide.

There are only 24 hours left on this kickstarter - we CAN start to take back the edge of the internet - if we can only find another 5k of funding. (obviously, more would be nice)

https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/onetswitch/onetswitch-open-source-hardware-for-networking

This FPGA board´s pcie interface and switch design - and the split memory interfaces between the programmable logic and the onboard dual A9 core - and reducing the cost from 7000 to 700 bucks - are the important parts to why the open source community needs this board - in my case - so that more of htb + fq_codel can move into hardware that anyone can build and use - in other cases? who knows what could be done with it!?

One day, we could move the logic into asics, and finally have proven, fast, reliable, open source, binary blob-free hardware to work with for any network purpose.

There are people on these lists with money, and there are those with talent and time, and it would be great if more of those people could
line up with each other. I put in all I could spare (8500 dollars) into this kickstarter.  I have one of their high end boards, already.

It´s great.

There is a "get one give one" program that I asked meshsr (the company making the board) to put in to try and enable connecting more developers up with this board. If there is anyone here that would like to help hack together the next generation of edge network hardware, after this kickstarter completes, let me know.

I return you now to your normal despair about vendors not listening,
and crappy OSes you can´t otherwise fix. Here, have a song:

MeshSr is raising funds for ONetSwitch: Open Source Hardware for Networking on Kickstarter! Students, makers, and engineers can write Linux software applications to achieve any network functions, such as NAS, VPN and Firewall.

Funny indeed...
 
"The NVIDIA logo is now the background and the Tux replacement is... "  ... interesting..

It is nice that they start a season just after other animes have their season end

Ubiquiti Unifi wifi router... DIY USS Enterprise edition? :)
I have owned four Wi-Fi routers in my life. Without exception, they have all been blocky, joyless objects that brought nothing but pain and frustration into my life (and, y’know, wireless internet). If the access points had been hidden inside the USS Enterprise, however, things would have been oh so different.

Ah, I see. I watched half of that while it aired... But I never continued it. It isn't bad, so I'll watch it again someday.
