The NetFPGA~\cite{zilberman:_netfp_sume}
is an FPGA card featuring four 10 Gbit/s SFP+ ports. It
includes the Xilinx Virtex-7 690T FPGA on board, 27 MB of storage,
allowing to save table data, and 8 GB of DDR3 RAM. The NetFPGA can be
run inside a host (connected by PCI-E, gen 3) or as a standalone
card.
It can be used as a ``traditional'' FPGA, with the focus on designing
the logic. However, the NetFPGA also supports the P4 programming
language~\cite{netfpga:_p4_netpf_public_github} and thus abstracts
away the low level logic by providing a higher level interface.
For the purpose of this thesis we treat the NetFPGA as a standard P4
target, similar to other available P4
targets~\cite{networks:_tofin},
~\cite{networks:_tofin1},
~\cite{networks:_arist_series}. In particular, we treat the NetFPGA as a
P4 capable, four port 10 Gbit/s network switch that allows us to
process packets at line speed.
