Artifact for RFUSE: Modernizing Userspace Filesystem Framework through Scalable Kernel-Userspace Communication (FAST 2024)

Artifact Description:

This is the artifact for the FAST '24 paper "RFUSE: Modernizing Userspace Filesystem Framework through Scalable Kernel-Userspace Communication". RFUSE is a novel userspace filesystem framework that utilizes scalable message communication between the kernel and userspace using a per-core ring channel as a communication channel. This artifact comprises the RFUSE source code and scripts utilized in the benchmarks presented in the paper.

For more detailed documentation, please refer to the README of the Git repository.
