tcpad status report #3

So, I’ve been offline for some days now and I’ll continue to be until the end of the month. Development of tcpad is going fine and I just committed a few days of work into Perforce. This new work includes parsing of the TCP options and further SEQ/ACK analysis.
SEQ/ACK analysis is probably the most challenging task of this project, so it hasn’t been finished yet.
The good news is that I’m learning a lot about TCP and its extensions and it’s being thrilling!

In other news, my TCP ECN work will most likely be committed to FreeBSD-CURRENT RSN. ;-)

TCP projects

For those out there that might be interested, I have been working on/following these FreeBSD networking projects:

  • TCP ECN
  • TCP ABC
  • TCP Congestion Control API
  • TCP ABI cleanup

You can find more information about them at the FreeBSD wiki: http://wiki.freebsd.org/TCPProjects8.

It would be great if all of these could be included in FreeBSD 8.0!
