Build your own DOCA Flow Application!
NVIDIA® DOCA™ is the key to unlocking the potential of the NVIDIA BlueField® data processing unit (DPU) to offload, accelerate, and isolate data center workloads. With DOCA, developers can program the data center infrastructure of tomorrow by creating software-defined, cloud-native, DPU-accelerated services with zero-trust protection to address the increasing performance and security demands of modern data centers.
DOCA Flow is the most fundamental API for building generic execution pipes in hardware. The library provides an API for building a set of pipes, where each pipe consists of match criteria, monitoring, and a set of actions. Pipes can be chained so that after a pipe-defined action is executed, the packet may proceed to another pipe.
In this course you will be introduced to DOCA Flow programming by building an “ARP Storm Control” application which prevents network failures caused by broadcast storms through the creation of a DOCA Flow pipeline that can dampen malicious broadcast network activity without impacting well-behaved traffic.
