I wonder if it is possible to offload a specific application to the SmartNIC? and how we can do that during runtime?
I have looked at the doca documentation but couldn’t find anything that would help.
It may be possible to “offload” an entire application to the Bluefield-2 ARM, but it very much depends. Currently, we’re thinking about DOCA as application acceleration: Find pieces of your existing x86 applications where there is opportunity to have the NIC perform a portion of that work via DOCA libraries. Our first release of DOCA focuses mostly on deep packet inspection and regular expression acceleration.
Thanks for the response, which doca libraries would be helpful to offload a portion of an application?
