The following measurements were recorded on Intel® Kaby Lake servers. The specification of the test systems is as follows:

  • DELL PowerEdge R230 servers equipped with Intel Xeon CPU E3-1240 v6 @ 3.70 GHz, 16 GB RAM.
  • BIOS configured as specified in BIOS Settings.
  • Solarflare X2522-25G NIC (driver and firmware – see Software Installation).
  • 25 Gb direct attach cable linking the NICs.
  • Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7.4 (x86_64 kernel, version 3.10.0-693.5.2.el7.x86_64).
  • OS configured as specified in Pre-Test Configuration

    The tuned cpu-partitioning profile has been enabled, configured to isolate all cores except for core 0, to reduce jitter and remove outliers.

  • OpenOnload distribution: openonload-201811.
  • netperf version 2.7.1.
  • wrk version 4.1.0.
  • nginx version 1.15.0.

It is expected that similar results will be achieved on any Intel based, PCIe Gen 3 server or compatible system.
