A User-level Socket Layer over Multiple Physical Network Interfaces

N. Mohamed, J. Al-Jaroodi, H. Jiang, and D. Swanson (USA)


Middleware, socket, expandableb andwidth, load balancing, and fault tolerance


n etwork APIs to hide low-level technical details from users. Parallel message fragmentation and reconstruction techniques and a reliable UDP-based protocol arei ntroduced. The proposed socket layer transparently provides an expandable high bandwidth solution, faultt olerance, and load balancing for transmitting largem essages over multiple networks. A prototype socketb ased on this model, called MuniSocket (MultipleN etwork Interface Socket), has been implemented ande valuated.
