Abstract: This thesis presents a parallel and distributed approach for the purpose of processing network traffic at high speeds. The proposed architecture provides the processing power required to run one or more traffic processing applications at line rates by means of processing full packets at multi-gigabits speeds using a parallel and distributed processing environment. Moreover, the architecture is flexible and scalable to future needs by supporting heterogeneous processing nodes such as different hardware architectures or different generations of the same hardware architecture. In addition to the processing, flexibility, and scalability features, our architecture provides an easy-to-use environment with the help of a new programming language, called FPL, for traffic processing in a distributed environment. The language and its compiler come to hide specific programming details when using heterogeneous systems and a distributed environment.
