Text (application/pdf)


This major report presents a study of the performance of the Kernel Reference Model (KRM) version 1.7, implementation of the Xpress Transfer Protocol (XTP) version 3.6. XTP is a "new generation" protocol, combining the network and transport layers. It is designed to respond to present and future computer applications, and to take advantage of the hardware possibilities. The performance measurements include unicast throughput and delay in an Ethernet network, in two different hardware configurations, one based on Sun-3 workstations, and the other one on Sun-4 workstations. The performance of the KRM is compared with that of other protocols such as the Transmission Control Protocol (TCP) and the User Datagram Protocol (UDP), all in the same environment and under the same conditions
