The problem of upgrading Berkeley Packet Filters
This article was the first part of a series of articles about Berkeley Packet Filters (BPCF), the protocol used by the IETF BGP to connect networks and the BGP routing protocol. The purpose of the series is to provide a general overview of BGP and how routers forward packets from a source address to a destination address, and to demonstrate some BGP routing scenarios. A more detailed description of BGP is provided in RFC 4443 and RFC 5067 in RFC4242.
– A set of BGP messages. The messages are also referred to as BGP packets.
– A set of BGP session (or BGP) attributes.
– A set of BGP routes.
– A set of BGP trees.
– A set of BGP BGP session attributes.
– A set of BGP BGP routes.
– A set of BGP BGP tree attributes.
– A set of BGP BGP messages.
The BGP session attributes are defined in [RFC4100].
Encapsulation type: session.
Session id: always 0.
eBPFcore.sys is a sink for eBPF drivers
Article Title: eBPFcore sys is a sink for eBPF drivers | Programming.
The eBPF core sys is a sink for eBPF drivers.
In the following, I explain how eBPF core sys is an implementation of a FIFO in eBPF, how it behaves with regards to input and output buffers, how it can be used to implement a network device driver to send packets to another machine, especially with regards to the use of the Linux kernel socket system. eBPF core sys is a sink for eBPF drivers.
In the eBPF core sys, the BPF program file can have multiple BPF files in it. These files are stored in a buffer pool and can be read by other BPF programs.
Because the eBPF core sys is implemented as a FIFO, each BPF file will have a buffer which is read or written by the BPF core program. Because the BPF core program can send and receive packets using all the bytes in the FIFO, it always has a complete set of input and output bytes. Hence, the eBPF core program can always be guaranteed full data availability.
Now, let’s suppose that you have written an eBPF program which runs on the eBPF core sys.
In eBPF, the BPF core program cannot read the eBPF program directly, because the eBPF core program is implemented as a FIFO. As a result, it is not possible to read the eBPF program from the BPF file in the same way that a C programmer would read a C program.
For this example, it is easier to write a BPF program which loads the BPF program into memory. You do that as follows.
The early days of eBPF on Windows
In January of 2011 I bought a ThinkPad T700 with Windows 7. One of the things I did was install the eBPF utility, it seemed like a good idea at the time. I had been using the utility before to help a friend load a Windows 7 virtual machine onto a new hardware (a Windows XP PC), and it seemed like all this might make life easier. I installed eBPF using the built-in installer, and I was happy with the results. No more virtual machine headaches, and no more of the weird bugs that have plagued some versions of BPF over the years (at least on my T700).
At some point during this process, I asked the question, what if the installer would not be able to identify the hardware? I had not read the BPF documentation on the installation, but I didn’t really think too much about it. After all, I thought the installer should do that. I didn’t even know if it had issues with the hardware before I installed.
In my opinion, this wasn’t a problem, but it did cause me to realize something I hadn’t before–that there are a lot of different versions of Linux, and different versions of BPF.
I’m not the first to notice this, nor the last to realize it, but it has become very common for the installation of some software in a modern linux distribution to not work after installing a tool that is supposed to help create some binary files on the system.
This happened to me too. I had a hardware that was not compatible with Windows 7, so I went to the vendor, and got some help installing Windows, and it wasn’t working any more.
This was in the beginning of the early 2010s, and, let me just say it makes the BPF utility pretty useless.
Tips of the Day in Programming
The array of objects example with a flexible array.
int and float together have the same range of values. This is not true when the two are combined.
Flexible array of objects. The arrays are of the same size so the compiler has a simple way of converting values between the two types.
The Java compiler does not care about the result types of the code. It just knows how to convert the value into a result that can be used in any function.
The JVM does not care that the JIT-compilations may run differently on different platforms.
