описание CONFIG_NET_FASTROUTE

Recommended Posts

Приветствую.

 

Ничего не смог нагуглить на тему описания данной опции ядра. Может быть у кого-либо есть информация, что именно делает включение FASTROUTE в ядре, какая от этого польза Ethernet-драйверам, поддерживающим ее.

 

Спасибо.

Saying Y here enables direct NIC-to-NIC (NIC = Network Interface Card) data transfers on the local network, which is fast.

 

IMPORTANT NOTE: This option is NOT COMPATIBLE with "Network packet filtering" (CONFIG_NETFILTER). Say N here if you say Y there.

 

However, it will work with all options in the "Advanced router" section (except for "Use TOS value as routing key" and "Use FWMARK value as routing key").

 

At the moment, few devices support fast switching (tulip is one of them, a modified 8390 driver can be found at <ftp://ftp.inr.ac.ru/ip-routing/fastroute/fastroute-8390.tar.gz>).
