The Role of In-Memory Database Systems for Routing Table Management in IP Routers

Core Internet bandwidth grows at triple the rate of CPU power, but high-value applications depend on managing much more data traffic at the network's edge. This requires rapid evolution of routing table management (RTM) software within IP routers. This paper examines using in-memory database systems (IMDS) to add RTM development flexibility, data integrity and fault tolerance. It provides performance examples on Linux and Windows 2000. This solution adds to vendors' ability to produce new generations of routers faster and at less cost, improving their competitive position.
