netmap / VALE is a framework for high speed packet I/O. Implemented as a kernel module for FreeBSD and Linux, it supports access to network cards (NICs), host stack, virtual ports (the "VALE" switch), and "netmap pipes". netmap can easily do line rate on 10G NICs (14.88 Mpps), moves over 20 Mpps on VALE ports, and over 100 Mpps on netmap pipes.
