Abstract With the constantly increasing Internet traffic and fast changing network protocols, future routers have to simultaneously satisfy the requirements for throughput, QoS, flexibility, and scalability. In this work, we propose a novel integrated CPU/GPU microarchitecture, Hermes, for QoS-aware high speed routing. We also develop a new thread scheduling mechanism, which significantly improves all QoS metrics.
