How to Optimize the Scalability & Performance of a Multi-Core Operating System

When upgrading your hardware platform to a newer and more powerful CPU with more, faster cores, you expect the application to run faster. In many cases, however, the application does not run faster and the CPU load is almost the same as for the older CPU. With high-end CPUs, you may even see interferences that break determinism. Why does this happen, and what can you do about it? The answer: build for scalability.

In this paper, we examine what causes these performance issues, how hardware choices can improve performance, and workarounds to help resolve the issues. We also introduce new technology, Intel’s CAT and MBA, that further improves performance and is now supported by RTX64 3.4. With this information and these techniques, you can optimize applications for multicore systems and improve scalability for improved results across the organization.
