Leveraging eXpress Data Path (XDP) for Programmable, High Performance Data Path in OpenStack

eXpress Data Path, or XDP is an open source initiative driving high performance, programmable network data path in the kernel as part of the IO Visor Project. XDP is CPU and hardware agnostic with support for any higher layer applications that OpenStack operators may deploy. Use cases include pre-stack processing such as filtering for mitigating DDoS attacks, packet forwarding and load balancing, flow sampling, monitoring and analytics just to name a few examples. XDP follows the principle of &
