Trapeze sustains network I/O performance close to the physical limits of the clients and the network hardware.
- File systems should run at network speeds, not disk speeds.
Adaptive message pipelining network memory access with network latency, delivers network bandwidth for streams.
Kernel RPC for low-overhead block movement preserves network speeds through the file/VM interfaces.
The Slice filesystem uses LAN as a storage backplane to source/sink data from disk at network bandwidth.
- Features for fast block I/O also allow TCP/IP at gigabit+ speeds.
