XTP implementation under Unix


User level software protocol implementations are known to have more flexibility. However, there is a concern about the performance of such implementations. XTP is a new transport protocol with execution efficiency as inherent part of its design . In this report we present a software implementation of the XTP protocol. Our work consisted in implementing this protocol as a set of user level library to be integrated within the application. We will present the implementation choices and some performance tests over both Ethernet and FDDI networks. We show that user level protocols implementation are not necessarily relatively slow : the untuned XTP implementation have comparable performance with kernel TCP. We also discuss the merits of the XTP protocol and its suitability for the support high speed communication.
