NFS with copy

What is it?

This is a change to the NFS implementation for Linux, along with a change to the sendfile system call. The purpose is to give Linux the feature that Off++ has: being able to copy bytes from one place to another without going through the client node.

Who did it?

The implementation is due to Gorka Guardiola with some help from me.

More info

Refer to my papers page and read some paper about boxes, or composite calls. The ideas behind are the same.

Source code

There is a patch for nfsd (2.2beta48) and a patch for the (2.2.12) kernel. If you need anything else, let us know.
