Linux Layer7 Switching 0.1.2

Linux Layer7 Switching's main goal is to provide a performant framework for Layer7 switching.
Linux Layer7 Switching's main goal is to provide a performant framework for Layer7 switching. Layer7 switching is driving a low-level engine using networking design to speed-up forwarding of data stream. Implementation in this project is split into a userspace daemon and a low-level kernelspace forwarding engine.

Userspace daemon is responsible for scheduling and switching decisions. Kernelspace forwarding engine is responsible for forwarding stream and using TCP-Splicing scheme.

TCP-Splicing is the postponement of the connection between the client and the server in order to obtain sufficient information to make a routing decision. This project is close to Linux Virtual Server project since lot of discusions on this topics have been made online and offline LVS project.

Why using L7SW ?

This project will provide you a way to switch incoming clients requests using pattern matching. A quick example is to drive a web server farm by locating specific content on dedicated servers (video, audio, images, ...) while virtual server exported to end user is uniq.

What's New in This Release:

The kernel module was backported to Linux version 2.4.
The Linux 2.6 kernel module was extended to support kernel versions lower than 2.6.19.
libtcpsplice has been extended to export more helpers.
A locking issue has been fixed while splicing sockets.
HAProxy has been extended to support tcp_splicing module.
