Device Performance Enhancements
ethtool is a Linux net driver diagnostic and tuning tool for the Linux 2.4.x (or later) series of kernels. Obtain information and diagnostics related to media, link status, driver version, PCI (or other) bus location, and more.

The Linux bonding driver provides a method for aggregating
multiple network interfaces into a single logical
bonded  interface.
The behavior of the bonded interfaces depends upon the mode; generally
speaking, modes provide either hot standby or load balancing services.
Additionally, link integrity monitoring may be performed.

This page describes how to test the performance of DCCP, choosing suitable test applications, and how to
download the experimental DCCP test tree.
TIPC is a LAN protocol, originally designed by Jon Maloy at Ericsson. Its purpose is to provide an efficient, transparent, and scalable communication mechanism for a wide range of possible cluster configurations. It has been in the linux kernel since 2.6.16.
http://tipc.sf.net  is the main TIPC site.

This Wiki is for documentation and discussions of development of the Linux Networking.
NetworkManager is designed to be fully automatic and "Just Work" without intervention, but friendly desktop applications allow users to control the state of the network if they desire. NetworkManager keeps a list of all available network devices, and updates that list when you insert or remove new network cards, dock your laptop, etc. Using this list, NetworkManager determines the best device to use for the computer's network connection.
Networking related mailing lists:
All network-related queues and buffers in the kernel use a common data structure, struct sk_buff . This is a large struct containing all the control information required for the packet (datagram, cell, whatever). The sk_buff elements are organized as a doubly linked list, in such a way that it is very efficient to move an sk_buff element from the beginning/end of a list to the beginning/end of another list.
The Intermediate Functional Block device is the successor to the IMQ iptables module that was never integrated.
Advantage over current IMQ; cleaner in particular in SMP;
with a _lot_ less code. Old Dummy device functionality is preserved while new one only
kicks in if you use actions.
