Match-Action Tables

This is a demonstration implementation of the subsystem proposed in my Master thesis, under working title Match-Action Tables, MAT for short.

The code is written in a kernel-like way, in an environment that simulates the Linux kernel. The subsystem code is therefore similar to what it would look like if implemented as a module, but can be run and tested in userspace.

Usage

First, you have to compile the sources. On Linux, it should be fairly easy:

$ make

Then, several testcases are created under the tests/ directory. To run them all and check whether everything is OK:

$ ./test.sh

The source code of the tests should be the starting point of your journey through the implementation. They are written as scenarios, showing the expected usage of the subsystem.
