Optimize Your NFVI Performance with Wiwynn® EP100 and Intel® Speed Select Technology – Base Frequency
Wiwynn® EP100 design is optimized for CoSPs’ NFVI with flexibility, serviceability and performance. CoSPs can utilize their existing racks with flexible configuration of the 1U half-width single socket sled.
With the powerful and optimized 2nd generation Intel® Xeon® Scalable processor family, EP100 enables high speed packet forwarding, which is critical to NFVI. By adopting the new NFVI specialized feature called Intel® Speed Select Technology – Base Frequency (Intel® SST-BF), EP100 boosts performance of targeted applications essential for some VNFs.
With supports from Industrial Technology Research Institute (ITRI) and Intel, we utilized OPNFV Yardstick/Network Services Benchmarking (NSB) framework to compare performance of Wiwynn® EP100 with Intel® SST-BF enabled and disabled in this whitepaper.. The Layer 2 forwarding tests were run on Intel® Xeon® Gold 6252N processor 6252N4 for performance benchmark of Open vSwitch (OVS) and the Data Plane Development Kit (DPDK). This testing process not only helps to identify Wiwynn® EP100’s performance under different CPU frequency configurations, but also assists CoSPs to develop a common reference set of performance benchmarks for their applications.
