S2D Networking Best Practices @ MVP Days

Hi Folks,

Dan here with a quick post to let you know about a recent presentation given at Spaces Direct MVP Days.  During this session, I discussed some of the requirements and for RDMA, and also covered (very quickly) some of the synthetic .

As a quick refresher:

  • RDMA: traffic is offloaded to the NIC
  • Synthetic: traffic is traverses the OS stack and is processed by the CPUs requiring vRSS, VMQ, VMMQ, and now Dynamic VMMQ

Take a look at the video and check out the rest of the playlist!
