Abstract: Efficient implementation of communication software is of crucial importance for high-speed networks. One way to improve the runtime performance of protocol implementations in the network nodes is the use of parallelism. Formal description techniques like Estelle improve the specification process in many respects and allow for semiautomatic code generation. Therefore, they are now widely accepted. We present a code generator for Estelle that compiles and automatically configures protocol software for a multiprocessor. Software modules are distributed over the available processors and executed concurrently. We report performance results on a KSR1 with 28 available processors under the OSF/1 operating system.
