Abstract—We describe a framework for very lightweight custom remote procedure call protocol. This framework uses variadic templates and other language features introduced in C++11 to furnish effective, cache friendly and hence energy efficient implementation. Our approach provides also type safety and modularity of RPC handlers. Such a solution is useful both in industrial and home automation applications with possibly severe limitations on processing power and network bandwidth (like using GSM in remote areas). Here, the latter constraint may apply to systems implemented on both ends of spectrum: low end embedded systems as well as high end multicore server systems, but under heavy load.

Index Terms—C++, meta programing, RPC protocol, variadic templates.
