[Xen-devel] Network questions


Can someone tell me what is the functionality of "backend" in XenoLinux?
It seems that virtual network interfaces corresponding to guest OS's
are created in Xen, including 'net_get_target_vif()', etc. And the virtual
interrupt VIRQ_NET raised by Xen is handled by other parts than "backend"
in XenoLinux.

So what is the rough flow of network in the system? Take the receiving
side for example, how does Xen cooperate with the "backend"?

Thanks for your help!
