Subject DO NOT REPLY [Bug 48918] Add support for SCTP beyond opening an SCTP socket.
Date Fri, 19 Mar 2010 00:16:59 GMT

The bigger picture with this effort is to add SCTP streams support into
Apache's APR and httpd server. 

The current HTTP over SCTP design
(http://tools.ietf.org/html/draft-natarajan-http-over-sctp-01) exploits SCTP
streams to avoid head-of-line blocking. SCTP (RFC 4960) also offers other
services unavailable in TCP such as unordered delivery, partially reliable
transmission, message based transfer, multihoming support, more
secure connection establishment with a cookie mechanism and so on. 

Our empirical study has shown that HTTP over SCTP streams improves HTTP
response times, and created a lot of interest at IETF's http-bis WG.

Jon Leighton (who submitted this patch) has been working with mozilla to get
HTTP/SCTP into Firefox and NSPR's source repositories
(https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=486199). Our hope is to do
something similar with APR and httpd. 

We'd appreciate any comments/suggestions on the patch. Thanks!
