I wonder does Bluefield2 have performance-related and power-saving BIOs settings such as Power, C-state, P-state, CPU frequency, memory state and any performance-related and power-saving BIOs settings mentioned by Open vSwitch with DPDK — Open vSwitch 3.2.90 documentation and Understanding BIOS Configuration for Performance Tuning (nvidia.com)? If yes, how to view the current settings and how to change them? Thanks!
Hi @wsf123 ,
We publish DPDK performance reports, which are available at this link.
These reports include BlueField2 test cases and relevant settings.
Thanks for sharing. One question about “other optimizations” of Bluefield2 experiment. It is mentioned in other optimizations 3) that we should “Move all IRQs to far NUMA node: “IRQBALANCE_BANNED_CPUS=$LOCAL_NUMA_CPUMAP irqbalance --oneshot””. However, Bluefield2 only has one numa node. Does this mean we can just skip this optimization since there is no far NUMA node? Thanks!
