New project going down

I'm currently working on a new exciting open-source project which is taking up the wast majority of my time. Once official I'll hopefully get back to somewhat of my normal life and start posting more again, for now follow me on twitter.

If you are or know someone who may be interested in contributing with code or design please contact me directly at jpetersson [ at ] garnser dot se.

Flow control routing

Just this morning I stumbled upon an article about Lawrence G. Roberts work on flow-control routers. I'm a bit surprised that I haven't stumbled upon his work earlier given that he's been in the market with this since 1999.

The technology behind flow-control is well described in the following chart:

If you're interested I would give the article about it a read, it's quite impressive that we've been able to keep up the last few years with 40 year old technology, I'm sincerely hoping to see more of these solutions in the future, especially if someone would decide to implement it into the Linux kernel.
