Title: System for data and interrupt posting for computer devices

Abstract: A system for monitoring issuance of interrupt and transaction commands without involving central processor units of computer systems. The system employs a fabric controller to manage transaction commands among and host devices. The system employs an interrupt controller to manage interrupt commands issued by devices. The system further employs a concurrent bridge to support communication between the controllers and at least one host device. With this system, congestion due to control and data traffic is minimized and a more efficient operation of central processor units is achieved.
