NVIDIA Accelerated IO (XLIO) Documentation Rev 1.1.8


The NVIDIA® Accelerated IO (XLIO) SW library boosts the performance of TCP/IP applications based on NGINX (CDN, DoH Etc.) and storage solutions as part of the SPDK. XLIO is a user-space software library that exposes standard socket APIs with kernel-bypass architecture, enabling a hardware-based direct copy between an application’s user-space memory and the network interface.

Coupling XLIO with NVIDIA® ConnectX®-6 Dx or NVIDIA® BlueField®-2 data processing unit (DPU) acceleration capabilities provide breakthrough performance of Transport Layer Security (TLS) encryption, without application code changes, using a standard socket API.
