As more and more cores are cramming into a single CPU chip, even a commodity dual-socket server can now has dozens of cores/threads available for running applications. To efficiently utilize all the available cores, care must be taken to avoid excessive core-to-core synchronization and cacheline contention from becoming a performance bottleneck. Excessive cacheline contention also has an impact on system power consumption.

This presentation discusses various performance related kernel patches that have gone into the upstream kernel, are pending or being proposed that can help improving performance and scalability in large multi-core systems. It also discuss best practices to avoid this type of performance problems in user applications as well as tools available to diagnose them.
