| A Linux SDK and support from MontaVista and Wind River
| The Octeon II Software Development Kit (SDK) is an enhanced version of the
| existing Octeon SDK, says Cavium. It includes a Linux SMP, GNU Toolchain, and
| a "Simple Executive" for fast path applications. Other SDK features are said
| to include performance tools, a simulator, examples, and APIs for hardware
| acceleration Cavium also offers additional software toolkits and multi-core
| software architecture and design consulting services.
| Previously the Octeon SDKs have been based on SMP Linux 2.6 distributions
| from MontaVista or Wind River. Today, both companies announced support for
| the Octeon II family with their Carrier Grade Linux (CGL) 4.0-compliant
| MontaVista Linux and Wind River Linux 3.0 distributions, respectively.
