Title: Perfect Hashing Algorithms for Current and Future Network Functions
Network algorithms prefer low memory cost and fast packet processing speed. We present our studies in the direction of perfect-hashing based memory-efficient network algorithms, such as Othello Hashing, and their applications to network forwarding, cloud load balancer, distributed storage, IoT, and bioinformatics. We demonstrate that these algorithmic tools use significantly smaller memory to achieve much faster query speed compared to existing solutions.
