In distributed programs, information is shipped over the community utilizing numerous community protocols. As an software developer, this usually looks as if a block field till a problem arises.
On this concern, we’ll clarify how frequent community protocols work, the place they’re utilized in distributed programs, and the way we troubleshoot frequent issues. We’ll cowl some common interview questions as properly. For instance:
What occurs once we sort a URL in an online browser?
What’s the TCP 3-way handshake?
What’s TCP time_wait?
What are HTTP 1/2/3?
Why does HTTP 3 use UDP?
How does HTTPS work?
Why is UDP thought-about “unreliable”?
Let’s first have a look at the place the community protocols are used.
The Web hyperlinks a variety of computing gadgets world wide. We will get a tough thought from the diagram beneath. Suppose we entry an internet site from a smartphone or laptop computer, which connects to a mobile tower. The tower connects to a router, which then accesses the web through Web Service Suppliers (ISPs). Packets are forwarded to a neighborhood ISP, then to the community internet hosting the web site. As soon as the packets attain the corporate community, they undergo a link-layer swap and attain the suitable server.
Each routers and link-layer switches are packet switches, and their job is to ahead packets. The distinction is that routers are normally used within the community core to attach a number of networks, whereas link-layer switches are utilized in entry networks (the community that bodily connects an finish system to an edge router), connecting a number of gadgets in a single community.
Why do we’d like community protocols? Web-connected gadgets…
