         A Report on Compute First Networking (CFN) Field Trial

Abstract

   Compute First Networking (CFN) enables the dispatching of the service
   request to an optimal edge site to improve the overall system load
   balancing and efficiency. Especially when an edge site is overloaded,
   other edges with service equivalency can dynamically serve the
   request. This document describes a CFN field trial to show the effect
   that CFN can achieve. Edge to edge interaction to get the available
   computing resources information for services and the network status
   to each other is introduced. Data plane to support late binding based
   dynamic anycast is illustrated too. The field trial shows that CFN
   can greatly improve the overall query per second served for a service
   hosted on multiple edges in a more balanced way.
