TxRx is a run-time environment for ONC RPC tightly integrated with the Tcl language.

The goal of TxRx is to reduce development time and improve application portability. The idea behind the experiments is that local processing times are small compared to network latency and throughput. The typical workload consists of RPC calls with variable payload size with little processing on both the server and the client. The time performance of TxRx is compared to the performance of a C program generated with rpcgen.
