[perhaps erroneously supposing that the promise of new longevity for Unix on commodity hardware as an edge packet forwarding engine is relevant to NANOG...] I heard on the FreeBSD lists that NASA is sponsoring this work. Does anybody know the desired end product? The release notes I saw seemed biased towards host stack improvements, with the flow cache a notable exception. I'd kill for a decent low-cost , high-density 10/100 ethernet traffic shaping device with functionality similar to Cisco's CAR or, dare to dream, a Packeteer. regards, -- Robert
