Editorial Reviews

Review

"George Varghese has had a remarkable impact on the real world of networking with his algorithmic innovations over many years. The networking research and development community is fortunate that he has now distilled his knowledge in this very readable, insightful, and much-needed book."
--Bruce Davie, Cisco Fellow, Cisco Systems

"This book nicely describes implementation tricks for building fast networking stacks, particularly in routers. This is a much needed book, I don't know of any other that covers this sort of implementation advice. George Varghese has invented several techniques to help speed up the Internet and in his book he provides interesting insight into this, and much more."
--Radia Perlman, Distinguished Engineer, Sun Microsystems

Book Description

An interdisciplinary approach to applying principles for efficient implementation in network devices, addressing and offering solutions to the problem of network implementation bottlenecks.

Format: Hardcover
The book describes in an unique way some of the algorithmic and system implementation details of network appliances. Some of the chapters (packet classification, forwarding and traffic measurements) might be know to readers familiar with the SIGCOMM and Infocom conferences: these chapters are excellent tutorials to some very advanced networking topics and can help readers to better understand papers from the main author published at Infocom/SIGCOMM.

Its probably the best networking book I've ever read....and I read a lot.

Format: Hardcover
This is an excellent, excellent text. Techniques and principles for building high performance distributed systems are hard to come by except through experience and talking to experts. There's a lot of knowledge in the community but this book is the first time to my knowledge that someone has collected it and presented it in a coherent framework. Even if you don't work with low level stuff, this book will help you learn to think in a "systemsy" way about high-performance designs.

Format: Hardcover
I'm a software engineer in the networking industry, specifically load balancers. In this field, performance is very critical and we are always on the lookout for making our devices faster.

I've spent quite a lot of time looking for books that contain insights, principles or even recipes that can aid professionals like us. And that's where this book becomes so invaluable, because I've not found another equivalent to it.

Varghese is an academic researcher all right, but he was in the industry and has made significant contributions to industry - such as timing wheels which is now standard for timer implementations. So the book is not dry network theory but full of practical advice, principles and examples of making fast network devices.

The author combines principles from operating systems, architecture and networking, along with simple ideas and a common-sense approach. The result is almost a cookbook of common performance issues in networking devices and ingenious ways of overcoming them.

Summary: If you are going to write software for a networking product, buy it. You won't regret it.

Format: Hardcover
This book does have some interesting coverage, but its presented in a way that is enormously difficult to get a coherent picture of. Every second paragraph makes a cross reference to some other part or chapter and it fast starts to get tiresome to have a constant train of thought. Some of the material is also not reader friendly by un-necessarily complicating the delivery of the subject matter by sheer verbiage. It also takes an "up from above" view of everything in a way that makes it impossible to apply a lot of this material in the real world without reading another book in parallel to this one.

I read a lot to improve my skills and keep current, and based on previous reviews, I really tried to follow this text in earnest - but after a while I just got tired of the sheer effort to navigate this book and just returned it to the store.
