Information About Warp Mode
The Cisco Nexus device uses a hardware component called the Algorithm Boost Engine (Algo Boost Engine) to support a forwarding mechanism, called warp mode. In warp mode, the access path is shortened by consolidating the forwarding table into single table, resulting in faster processing of frames and packets. In warp mode, latency is reduced by up to 20 percent. For more information about the Algo Boost Engine, see Active Buffer Monitoring Overview.
