Dear All!

This is the final status report of the Multiqueue Testing Project.

The aim of this project is to design and implement an infrastructure
to validate that a number of the network stack's multiqueue behaviours
are as expected.

The deliverables of this project mainly consist of:

- A general mechanism to collect the per-ring per-cpu statistics
  which can be used by all NIC drivers, and the extended netstat(1)
  which can report these statistics.

- A suite of network stack behavior testing programs which consists
  of (a) a virtual multiqueue ethernet interface (vme), (b) a UDP
  packet generator based on vme, (c) a UDP server based on socket(2),
  (d) a TCP client based on lwip and vme, (e) a TCP server based on

At present, most parts of this project have been implemented. Few
parts have been committed to -HEAD, and other parts have been submitted
to Phabricator.

Now, I'm also working on improving the IPv6 RSS supports with the
help of adrian at . ^_^

Finally, I want to say thank you to my mentor Hiren, George and Robert,
for the helps and guidance! ^_^

Many thanks!

Best regards,
Tiwei Bie
