SR-IOV benchmark Presentation Transcript

  • 1. Public SR-IOV in numbers • Intel®82599 network controller Tommy Värre Niilo Minkkinen Software Architect Senior Software Developer Tieto, Tieto, tommy.varre@tieto.com niilo.minkkinen@tieto.com © Tieto Corporation
  • 2. Public SR-IOV and Virtio • Single Root I/O Virtualization • Direct hardware access to pcie card. Hypervisor used only for interrupts. All data is copied through DMA • Intel’s network card has a L2 switch that is used to route traffic between vm that are in same host • Virtio • Virtio emulates network hardware. Hypervisor is used for interrupts and all data is copied through hypervisor. All data is routed through hypervisor • It will be very intresting to see how MR-IOV will do in future • Multi Root I/O Virtualization: Multible compute nodes can share one pcie card 2 © Tieto Corporation 2014-02-11
  • 3. Public Test setup • OpenStack is used to launch virtual machines • Control node , 2x compute nodes (i7 4 + 4 cores ) • All vm’s using 1 core, 768MB memory and 10GB disk • Network card has Intel® 82599 10 Gigabit Ethernet Controller (Fiber SFP’s 2x10GB) Using only one 10GB port • All virtual machines have about 30% of payload ’in idle mode’ • TCP window size was fixed to 8.0 - 16.0 KByte • Iperf is used to generate network traffic, no limits • All 20 vm are running all the time. Needed amount using network. –This gives some background load to server • In first case traffic is between compute nodes • In second cases traffic is inside a compute node 3 © Tieto Corporation 2014-02-11
  • 4. Public Summary • These tests where run with ’off-the-shelf’ enviroment and software • Using basic drivers and no extra tuning of the system • SR-IOV network is about 10-15% faster that Virtio when traffic is going to out side network. • Virtio seems to equal when using only few vm’s in same compute node. Eg. Two virtual machines are sending network traffic between them in same server. (there was all 20 vm runing, but only few using network) • But when there is more vm’s and cpu needs to schedul more. SR-IOV seems to be bit better. • How to get more performance (fine tuning the enviroment) • Fine tune scheduling, use of DPDK, differend packet sizes, limit number of wm’s, tuning network drivers, etc… 4 © Tieto Corporation 2014-02-11
