Title : Analysis of MPA over TCP Operations
Author(s) : U. Elzur
Filename : draft-elzur-iwarp-mpa-tcp-analysis-00.txt
Pages : 38
Date : 2003-2-6
Further explanation and analysis of architectural recommendations
contained in the recent Internet-Draft, Marker PDU Aligned Framing
for TCP Specification [MPA], is provided. The impact of the
following three attributes of MPA over TCP is examined:
* packing of multiple DDP ULPDUs into one TCP segment;
* simplifying the receiver due to transmitter alignment of DDP
headers with TCP headers; and
* mistakenly attempting to interoperate an MPA-enabled endpoint
with a non-MPA-enabled endpoint.

NOTE: The mail server at ietf.org can return the document in
MIME-encoded form by using the "mpack" utility. To use this
feature, insert the command "ENCODING mime" before the "FILE"
command. To decode the response(s), you will need "munpack" or
a MIME-compliant mail reader. Different MIME-compliant mail readers
exhibit different behavior, especially when dealing with
"multipart" MIME messages (i.e. documents which have been split
up into multiple messages), so check your local documentation on
how to manipulate these messages.
Below is the data which will enable a MIME compliant mail reader
implementation to automatically retrieve the ASCII version of the
