Overview

Storage and network applications can benefit from CPU offload and/or acceleration engines for DMA, memfill, XOR/PQ. Currently, FreeBSD does not have an infrastructure in place where these engines can be registered with the kernel, nor applications can generically take advantage of such engines if they exist.

The purpose of this working group would be to identify the following:

Very early thoughts on offload APIs:

Registering DMA engines Offloading DMA/XOR operations
