I’m not shore about the concept of SANA2 is it an API between the hardware and the Network core?
If this is how I can understand it, then I think there is allot more that can be added to network core as well like support for routing, IP masquerading and IP alias, firewall support, ftp trace, basically every option in the Linux kernel for networking.
There will be nice to have an dynamically working network core so you can add and remove filters and other options, there can be an idea to have core that allows priority of different firewall / TCP / UDP / IPX filters in the priority best optimised for the traffic, or some sort of load balance structure.
Ex. If an raw network package is mostly UDP then UDP filter comes first, butt if TCP is most common protocol the TCP filter comes first.
I’m just come with ideas I do not know watt is missing on SANA2 if there is some kind communication missing to for DMA or flush, memory handling.
