报告主要内容：Packet classification according to multi-field ruleset to guide packet forwarding is a key component for network appliances. SDNs and cloud networks update the rulesets frequently to reflect policy changes. Supporting fast ruleset updating and high-speed packet classification is thus mandatory for these networks. Nevertheless, existing packet classification studies focus either on high-speed packet classification (e.g., decision tree-based algorithms) or on fast updating (e.g., hash based algorithms), and no known approaches meet both requirements.
In this paper, we propose Range-tuple Space Search (RTSS) to effectively accelerate the packet classification in hash based algorithms while keeping their strength in fast rule updating. RTSS is built on our key observation that rules are unevenly distributed in the tuple space, which is defined by the combinations of prefix lengths of fields to match.
To reduce the number of hash tables for fast classification, we introduce a novel concept range-tuple with each formed as the aggregate of adjacent tuples. RTSS can overcome the major obstacle that hinders hash-based packet classification by balancing the number of hash tables and the probability of hash collision.
