TUTORIALS 》 Research Socket overhead in Linux vs Message Queues and benchmarking

The objective of this research is to assess the system performance overheads of user-space sockets (in this case UDP sockets) vs Message queues. So that this can be used as a basis to access a server/device potential as a Linux based network appliance (can be a Firewall device, VPN, WAN Optimization, and so on). Kindly watch my video below in order to participate in this research.

Here is my next follow-up video where I did more extensive benchmarks with respect to each specific time interval (in this case every second) in three different devices an Intel 6-core desktop, an Intel dual-core Dell laptop and an Intel quad-core HP laptop. Here are the detailed single instance of UDP socket client-server performance benchmarks:

Device/CPU/ServerBandwidth
Intel Core i7-5820K desktop32 Gbps
Intel Core i7-4700MQ - HP Envy 15-J111TX Laptop30 Gbps - 20 Gbps (fluctuating)
Intel Core i7-4500U - Dell 15R 5537 Laptop28 Gbps

Here is my final conclusion/follow-up video where I compared the Episode-2 benchmarking code with new Message Queues benchmarking code. Unlike my other previous episode(s), in this case I tested with single Tx (UDP-Client/ MessageQ-Send) and Rx (UDP-Server/ MessageQ-Receive) and benchmarked my results. Here is the architecture diagram which represents the overall idea/objective of the same.

I tested the same with my Intel Core i7-5820K desktop, and found UDP Socket framework is performing around 32Gbps (with MAXBUF of 10240 per transmit buffer size) while the Message Queue framework is performing around 56Gbps (with MAXBUF of 8024 per transmit buffer size). With this we can visualize live the overall % of socket overhead vs a much simpler IPC like Message Queue in a single host/server/device. Here is my live detailed demo video of the same.

What is a Linux Kernel Module - a Big Picture ↗

Learning Linux Kernel Programming is always fascinating and yet challenging. So generally you may tend to learn Kernel Module programming, since such a module can be dynamically plugged into running Linux Kernel. But this will lead to confusion, and many assume kernel source is mostly a collection of these modules. Which in reality is not. Not just that, when we say Kernel Module, its a vaguely defined term. The term Module (as we know) is nothing but a collection of APIs, bunch of variables and associated data-structures. Which may or may not be a plugable kernel module. If you ask me, I am a fan of wiring Linux Kernel Modules, which may not be necessarily a pluggable kernel module. It all boils down to the address space at which these modules function inside a monolithic Linux Kernel. Which is nothing but Linux Kernel's address space. Hence here is my detailed multi-episode Youtube video series on Linux Kernel modules, a big picture and the significance of the

When learning Linux Kernel programming, often I notice my students and viewers gets confused and they start with learning writing Linux Kernel modules. And so they develop the common misconception about Kernel Programming in general. They assume writing code in Linux Kernel means writing kernel modules. Which is absolutely not. Kernel modules are an optional choice and are part of Linux Kernel. But besides modules, Linux Kernel has lot of other mainstream code. Hence if anyone wants to be a Kernel Developer, you should be aware that sometimes you add new code via modules, sometimes without them. And if you ask me, I am not much in favor of writing Kernel modules. Instead in my code, I try to integrate and make them a part of Linux Kernel so that they all get initialized during boot time. Here is an extensive Youtube video of mine on Linux Kernel Programming, with and without Kernel Modules.
