The STREAMS component is an implementation of SVR 4.2 MP STREAMS for Linux.
STREAMS is a fundamental underpinning for all STREAMS-based components under OpenSS7.
Work on Linux Fast-STREAMS started in 2003 and completed in 2006.
Linux Fast-STREAMS is in the Maintenance stage. Only minor
modifications to the build process to build for newer kernels are performed as necessary. No
bugs have been found since mid-2006.
Work on the project has been funded primarily by:
For additional sponsors of OpenSS7, please see the Sponsors page.
Linux Fast-STREAMS is a set of Linux 2.4.x, 2.6.x or 3.x loadable kernel modules. It depends
upon no other OpenSS7 packages. To use the package does not require patching of the kernel.
The package is autoconf tarball and is suitable to configure, build and install against
production kernels in popular distributions.

Designs for Linux Fast-STREAMS can be viewed on the Linux
Fast-STREAMS Design page.
Documentation for Linux Fast-STREAMS is available on the Linux
Fast-STREAMS Documentation page.
The Linux Fast-STREAMS manual pages are available starting on the Linux Fast-STREAMS Manual Pages page.
Test programs for POSIX testing for Linux Fast-STREAMS are available in the src/test sub-directory of the streams release package. Autotest test suites are available
in the tests sub-directory of the streams release package.
Performance test results using these programs and tests suites are available on the Linux Fast-STREAMS Performance page.
Conformance test results using these programs and tests suites are available on the Linux Fast-STREAMS Conformance page.

Code is has been publicly released, and can be viewed starting with the streams package release directory.
Several packages have been publicly released:
This is a fully functional alpha release. This package has been rigorously tested with a fair
test coverage and passes conformance and performance tests. The other STREAMS packages have
been tested with this package.
This was the initial public release and was largely released to provide information to the
industry and allow code inspection of the code base. This release has been deprecated by the
