Also included in LibDAQ 2.0.4 is a new DAQ module supporting the netmap
high speed packet I/O framework.
Netmap is supported natively on FreeBSD 10.0 and via a combination of
patched and additional kernel modules on Linux. See the LibDAQ README's
netmap section for information on setting up and running on FreeBSD or
Linux. This module is still somewhat experimental and additional user
testing would be appreciated. The passive and especially the inline
speeds have been quite impressive compared to previously available
options like AFPacket. As an additional note of caution for those
unfamiliar with netmap, using netmap will, by design, completely take
over the target interfaces and they will not be usable for anything else
while in that mode.
See http://info.iet.unipi.it/~luigi/netmap/ for more details on netmap
