Offloading all or part of the Open vSwitch datapath to SmartNICs has
been shown to not only release CPU resources on the sever, but improve
traffic processing performance. Recently steps have been made to
support such offloading in the upstream Linux kernel. This has focused
on creating an OVS datapath using the TC flower filter and utilizing
the offload hooks already present here. This presentation focuses on
how Connection Tracking (Conntrack) may fit into this model. It
describes current work being undertaken with the Netfilter community
to allow offloading of Conntrack entries. It continues to link this
work with the offloading of Conntrack rules within OVS-TC.
