Feedback form is now closed.
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 enable multi-threaded applications to efficiently utilize all the available cores, care must be taken to avoid pitfalls that will adversely impact application performance.

This presentation discusses various factors that can affect application performance and what the Linux kernel community had done in recent years to scale up application performance on large NUMA systems.
