Datapower XM70 core concepts
Low Latency technology:
1. Low latency messaging utilize features of network and transport layers.
Use two types of IP messaging at network layer:
1. Unicast : point-to-point messaging
2. Multicast : sending packets from more than one sender to a group of receivers.
Messages can be sent over TCP or UDP at the transport layer:
1. TCP/IP provides reliable message and resource conservation
2. UDP protocol builds reliable messaging and resource conservation into the transmitter and receiver applications.
Five LLM protocols used for sending and receiving information between sender and receiver:
1. Reliable Local Message : bridge messages from LLM to Datapower service policy
2. Reliable UDP Multicast (RMM) : sends low latency messages to multiples receivers
3. Reliable UDP Unicast (Piont-to-Piont RMM): sends low latency messages to a single receiver using UDP transport
4. Reliable TCP Unicast (RUM): sends low latency messages to a single receiver using TCP transport.
5. Null: Filters LLM messages and does not route.
RMM exploits the IP multi-cast infrastructure to ensure scalable resource conservation and timely information distribution.
