Methods, network devices, and systems which transmit and receive packets with priority by receiving a packet via one of the plurality of network interfaces; determining a global sequence number and a priority level of the packet; storing the packet; encapsulating the packet in encapsulating packets; transmitting the encapsulating packets via a plurality of logical network connections to the second network device according to the global sequence number and the priority level; receiving the encapsulating packets; decapsulating the packet from the encapsulating packets; and transmitting the packet to the intended receiver according to the global sequence number and the priority level.. .

Systems and methods for providing link-performance information in socket-based communication devices
A network socket application programming interface (api) running on a communication device is operative to provide, to applications running on the device, information about the performance of communication links used by sockets for communicating across a network. The socket api receives packets associated with sockets, and retrieves from the packets performance information for corresponding communication links.

Extended priority for ethernet packets
A network device includes a packet ingress configured to receive packets from a network, and a packet processor configured to identify a first packet of the received packets as a double vlan tagged packet with an extended priority profile. The packet processor is also configured to determine, based on p bits distributed among m bits of a first priority field associated with a first vlan tag and n bits of a second priority field associated with a second vlan tag, the extended priority profile of the first packet from among a group of possible extended priority profiles that is larger than a first group of possible priority profiles associated with the first priority field and larger than a second group of possible priority profiles associated with the second priority field.
