Description

Details

The Extended Sockets API (ES-API) Technical Standard provides extensions to the traditional socket API to support improved efficiency in network programming. The ES-API includes: synchronous IO and control operations on sockets; event queue-based management of asynchronous operations; and pre-registering of memory regions that will be the subject of IO operations. These facilities are intended to support: improved efficiency when dealing with high numbers of socket file descriptors; 'zero-copy' transmit and receive operations; and improved buffer management. The ES-API also includes routines that provide asynchronous IO and control operations, asynchronous operation management, and memory registration functions for applications manipulating sockets.
