In developing data-plane network applications for modern high-speed networks, there exists a trade-off between the limits of available processing power and the requirements for increased analytics within applications. With packetC, this battle rages on and must remain at the heart of any application design. Network applications must ensure low latency and minimization of processing in every algorithm possible in order to maximize the quantity of transactions that may be evaluated. Evaluating an application not only for valid logic but also for efficiency must become core to every packetC development project.
