SCTP and OpenBSM in FreeBSD

Here are two quick notes on my favorite operating system. First, support for Stream Control Transmission Protocol (SCTP) has been added to FreeBSD CURRENT (i.e., 7.x). SCTP is a layer 4 alternative to TCP or UDP. I saw it mentioned in cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 final issue of Cisco's Packet magazine, in cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 context of NetFlow , specifically cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 new Flexible Netflow. When I get a chance to test this it will probably be using this technology.

Second, Federico Biancuzzi conducted an excellent interview with Robert Watson regarding OpenBSM and FreeBSD. This is incorporated into cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 upcoming FreeBSD 6.2, which I expect to see in early December.

I have been playing with Solaris/Ulticom SIGTRAN stacks for about 3 years and SCTP is used at layer 4. Nice to see I could at least use SCTP at home for fun and….something…Thanks for cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 info.

Better late than broken? At cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 risk of sounding critical to this commentor, OS delivery delays are a sign of a working QA process, not a broken development process. It's entirely clear that cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 software development industry has no idea how to "schedule" software development, and a slip of a few weeks is essentially optimal by contemporary development practice standards. I'd much racá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365r have a two or three week delay in delivering software than delivering it known-broken, which *is* cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 industry practice.
