Abstract
(EN)
The present invention provides a cost effective method to improve the performance of communication appliances by retargeting the graphics processing unit as a coprocessor to accelerate networking operations. A system and method is disclosed for using a coprocessor on a standard personal computer to accelerate packet processing operations common to network appliances. The appliances include but are not limited to routers, switches, load balancers and Unified Threat Management appliances. More specifically, the method uses common advanced graphics processor engines to accelerate the packet processing tasks.

L'invention se rapporte à un procédé rentable permettant d'améliorer la performance d'appareils de communication par reciblage de l'unité de traitement de graphiques en tant que co-processeur afin d'accélérer les opérations de réseau. Ce système et ce procédé permettent d'utiliser un co-processeur sur un ordinateur personnel standard afin d'accélérer les opérations de traitement de paquets communes aux appareils du réseau. Ces appareils comportent, entre autres, des routeurs, des commutateurs, des compensateurs de charge et des appareils de gestion de menace unifiée. Plus précisément, ce procédé utilise des moteurs de processeur de graphiques avancés communs afin d'accélérer les tâches de traitement de paquets.
