Deep Packet Inspection Based on Many-Core Platform


With the development of computer technology, network bandwidth and network traffic continue to increase. Considering the large data flow, it is imperative to perform inspection effectively on network packets. In order to find a solution of deep packet inspection which can appropriate to the current network environment, this paper built a deep packet inspection system based on many-core platform, and in this way, verified the feasibility to implement a deep packet inspection system under many-core platform with both high performance and low consumption. After testing and analysis of the system performance, it has been found that the deep packet inspection based on many-core platform TILE_Gx36 [1] [2] can process network traffic of which the bandwidth reaches up to 4 Gbps. To a certain extent, the performance has improved compared to most deep packet inspection system based on X86 platform at present.
