To all EE faculty and PhD students, please join us for a seminar led by the National University of Singapore's Professor Mun Choon Chan. 

Abstract: The arrival of programmable switching ASICs has made it possible to rethink the design of many network control and management functions. In this talk, I will present some recent work on using programmable switches to support in-network monitoring and debugging that are specifically designed to run efficiently in the data-plane. The proposed mechanisms have been implemented and evaluated on the Barefoot Tofino Switch using the P4 language.
