Fixing vagrant-proxy installation problems!
24 Jun 2022
Always been a big fan of Vagrant, LibVirt and Vagrant Proxy. These all rock, as
fast and convent ways to build and deploy virtual machines on Linux KVM.
Vagrant Proxy is particularly useful for corporate environments that are
encumbered by a proxy. It auto-magically detects the host’s proxy configuration
and configures the virtual machine in the same way, as the VM is being built and
Why Fat Binary support in FD.io VPP rocks!

It’s worth understanding how VPP Fat Binary (aka Multi-arch variants) support
works in FD.io VPP, as it is pretty cool.
Guide to talking to applications from FD.io VPP
01 Jun 2022
A regular newbie question in VPP-land is how to talk to 3rd party applications
from FD.io VPP. The answer depends of course on what you want to talk, that is
which API or Protocol.
Using HPC instructions to accelerate DPDK and FD.io
24 May 2022
In 2020 I wrote a series of white-papers describing using the Intel AVX-512 SIMD
instruction-set (AVX-512) to accelerate packet processing applications. AVX-512
is well known for its ability to accelerate AES cryptography with AVX-512 Vector
AES (vAES) instructions. However, what will be counter intuitive to some, is to
use an instruction-set like AVX-512, that was primarily designed for HPC type
workloads to accelerate networking.
