The prior few years have noticeable major swap within the panorama of top of the range community processing. according to the bold demanding situations dealing with this rising box, the editors of this sequence got down to survey the most recent learn and practices within the layout, programming, and use of community processors. via chapters on undefined, software program, functionality and modeling, quantity three illustrates the potential of new NP purposes, supporting to put a theoretical beginning for the structure, overview, and programming of networking processors.Like quantity 2 of the sequence, quantity three extra shifts the focal point from reaching larger degrees of packet processing functionality to addressing different severe elements equivalent to ease of programming, program advancements, energy, and function prediction. moreover, quantity three emphasizes forward-looking, modern study within the components of structure, instruments and methods, and purposes comparable to high-speed intrusion detection and prevention approach layout, and the implementation of recent interconnect criteria. *Investigates present functions of community processor expertise at Intel; Infineon applied sciences; and NetModule.Presents present learn in community processor layout in 3 special areas:*Architecture at Washington college, St. Louis; Oregon healthiness and technological know-how collage; collage of Georgia; and North Carolina country University.*Tools and methods at collage of Texas, Austin; Academy of Sciences, China; college of Paderborn, Germany; and college of Massachusetts, Amherst.*Applications at collage of California, Berkeley; Universidad Complutense de Madrid, Spain; ETH Zurich, Switzerland; Georgia Institute of expertise; Vrije Universiteit, the Netherlands; and Universiteit Leiden, the Netherlands.
