Following a comment from Kevin Closson here is the hierarchical execution cycles breakdown based on the TMAM method before and after enabling HUGEPAGES when running SLOB for testing Logical I/O.
This will let’s us identify our micro-architectural bottlenecks and correctly characterize the SLOB workloads ! Continue reading
