CU-160. Improving Network Throughput


How do you know if your team benefits from this new feature?:

Improving Network Throughput

In recent days and months, the development team has spent a lot of time on finding bottlenecks and removing those. Our goal is to increase throughput on hardware and bringing latency down, for a faster network.

This update brings a first change which will enable network interfaces that support it, to send packets that belong to the same stream to the same processor core. This allows taking advantage of better cache locality and the firewall engine as well as the Intrusion Prevention System benefit from this, especially with a large number of connections and especially on hardware with smaller CPU caches.

This feature is automatically enabled on all hardware that supports it.

In the GUI I don’t see anything that references this.
