This project focused on research and developing micro-kernels targeting multi-core processor architecture as well as high performance networking architecture to leverage their high performance capabilities. The objectives achieved were benchmarking suite for multi-core systems by integrating and automating the developed micro-benchmarks with appropriate experimental design, established a platform for research on multi-core processor performance characterization and evaluation of CPU-memory subsystem performance disparity for high-throughput networking applications and developed expertise in the area of High Performance Computing and High Performance Networking.
