Maximum Performance: How to Get It and Avoid Pitfalls - Christoph Lameter

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Maximum performance is possible if we can get all hardware components and software components that influence our particular workload to operate at the limits of what those components allow. Performance is most frequently determined by the interaction of hardware, software and the application. Getting there is actually a balancing act between what can be done by the applications, the way that the operating system can be configured to interact with a given piece of hardware and the operating modes of the hardware.

The talk will cover a couple of common scenarios that have been seen repeatedly with applications that require maximum storage throughput, network throughput or that are bound by the number crunching or memory access capabilities of the processors. It also will delve into the some of the common trade offs that may exist and prevent systems from running at top performance.
