[RaptorJIT ]

RaptorJIT is a fork of LuaJIT focused on predictably high performance. RaptorJIT takes a quantitive approach to performance. The value of an optimization must be demonstrated with a reproducible benchmark. Optimizations that are not demonstrably beneficial on recent CPU generations are removed. RaptorJIT was initially developed by the team behind Snabb Switch.

In network dataplanes performance needs to be predictable, which brings new requirements:
