A Look Into NUMA, Hardware, Linux & Oracle Performance


Frits Hoogland, Accenture Enkitec


 

Abstract

The majority of the Oracle database servers uses two CPU sockets nowadays, however the trend of increasing the amount of CPU rather than making the CPU faster has started quite some time ago. In today's common hardware architecture, memory is local to the CPU socket. This means that an understanding of the implication of memory locality is imperative to computing performance.
 
This shows the investigations done at the Linux and Oracle layers of a huge NUMA system, in order to make the attendee aware of the implications of local memory and performance implications, and how to measure and validate NUMA settings, and how to measure the implications.
