Server resources have exploded recently (# of cores, RAM size, I/O, ...). Previously seen only on MIPS or Itanium architectures, x86 has also recently seen machines with mainframe type capabilities.This presentation will detail the various approaches available on Linux to control and manage optimally these precious resources.We will cover the 3 main technologies:

  • NUMA and cgroups in details for control at OS level. A live demo will be given around limiting CPU and RAM for different class of processes.
  • LXC for OS virtualization
  • KVM+libvirt/Xen for HW virtualization.  

Each time, use cases will be given to illustrate the best fit of each technology in a global portfolio. A cgroup demo will also be performed to show its capabilities. Audience expected: System Administrators and Technology Architects willing to optimize their server usage.
