Here is an agenda for the XDP summit. We expect this to be a lot of
interactive conversation so the agenda can be dynamic as needed!


8:30 Breakfast
9:00 Introductions, agenda, logistics, goals of the summit

9:15-10:15 Implementation status
- Mellanox, Intel development
- page pool
- driver status and issues
- performance numbers
- generalizing skbs
- open issues
10:15-10:45 Real world uses cases in development
- ILA router
Does this ILA router do multi-leg routing? If not, then I would add
the use case for "normal" routing.

- load balancer
- others?
Use-case: DDoS filter
- This was the original use-case from CloudFlare at netdevconf[1]

Use-case: RAW packet capture
- IDS systems like Suricata needs this (af_packet not fast-enough)
- Only support "steal" mode

- Issues developers are hitting
10:45-11:00 Break
HW offload of BPF/XDP
- Netronome
- Barefoot switch HW
- Encryption, advance features
11:45-12:15 XDP/Ceth integration

12:15-1:30 Lunch

1:30-2:00 Cilium
2:00-3:00 APIs
- Meta data
- Return codes
- Portability but still allow using latest and greatest HW features
3:00-3:15 Break
3:15-4:00 Support for network virtualization
4:00-5:00 Ecosystem considerations
- Toolchain, debugging
- BPF programs repository management
5:00-6:00 Open discussion, planning, wrapup

6:30- Dinner at Rangoon Ruby, Palo Alto CA
