ORNL Net100

Project ended 10/1/04.

The Net100 project is a DOE/MICS sponsored project to develop a network-aware operating system. The project seeks to measure and understand end-to-end network and application performance, and apply that knowledge to tuning networks and applications, eliminating the "wizard gap." The project is looking at both bulk transfer over high latency/bandwidth networks and grid-based applications, especially (but not limited to) DOE's ESnet. The major components are

The project has some novel approaches, including

The ORNL Net100 team:

The Net100 team is also working closely with the other DOE/MICS networking projects including
SciDAC projects (see networking projects)

and these DOE/MICS base-funded projects: The Net100 team has also worked with Sally Floy (HS TCP), Tom Kelley (Scalable TCP), and the CalTech FAST project. Net100 is also working with the Internet 2 End-to-End Performance Initiative Many research across the world have downloaded our Net100 kernel extensions and tuning tools.
