New Ways to Speed Up Zeek Script Execution​​​​​​​

Join Vern Paxson, Founder of Zeek,  as he goes over his latest work around compiling-scripts-to-C++.  Zeek’s performance depends in part on how quickly the system executes the user’s scripts, as well as the many predefined scripts Zeek makes available. To date, this execution has used a high-level interpreter, which imposes considerable overhead.  This talk will sketch two new experimental features for executing scripts much more quickly: compiling them to a low-level form (“ZAM”), and directly to C++.
