LLC Load Misses Serviced By Remote DRAM

Metric Description

In NUMA (non-uniform memory architecture) machines, memory requests missing in LLC may be serviced either by local or remote DRAM. Memory requests to remote DRAM incur much greater latencies than those to local DRAM. It is recommended to keep as much frequently accessed data local as possible. This metric is defined by the ratio of cycles when LLC load misses are serviced by remote DRAM to all cycles.

Possible Issues

A significant amount of time is spent servicing memory requests from remote DRAM. Wherever possible, try to consistently use data on the same core, or at least the same package, as it was allocated on.

Product and Performance Information

Intel's compilers may or may not optimize to the same degree for non-Intel microprocessors for optimizations that are not unique to Intel microprocessors. These optimizations include SSE2, SSE3, and SSSE3 instruction sets and other optimizations. Intel does not guarantee the availability, functionality, or effectiveness of any optimization on microprocessors not manufactured by Intel. Microprocessor-dependent optimizations in this product are intended for use with Intel microprocessors. Certain optimizations not specific to Intel microarchitecture are reserved for Intel microprocessors. Please refer to the applicable product User and Reference Guides for more information regarding the specific instruction sets covered by this notice.
