 sPIN: High-performance streaming Processing in the Network

(In Proceedings of the International Conference for High Performance Computing, Networking, Storage and Analysis (SC17), Nov. 2017)
Best Paper Finalist at SC17 (5/61)

Abstract

Optimizing communication performance is imperative for large-scale computing because communication overheads limit the strong scalability of parallel applications. Today’s network cards contain rather powerful processors optimized for data movement. However, these devices are limited to fixed functions, such as remote direct memory access. We develop sPIN, a portable programming model to offload simple packet processing functions to the network card. To demonstrate the potential of the model, we design a cycle-accurate simulation environment by combining the network simulator LogGOPSim and the CPU simulator gem5. We implement offloaded message matching, datatype processing, and collective communications and demonstrate transparent full-application speedups. Furthermore, we show how sPIN can be used to accelerate redundant in-memory filesystems and several other use cases. Our work investigates a portable packet-processing network acceleration model similar to compute acceleration with CUDA or OpenCL. We show how such network acceleration enables an eco-system that can significantly speed up applications and system services.
