UPI Utilization Bound

Metric Description

This metric represents percentage of elapsed time the system spent with high UPI utilization. Explore the Bandwidth Utilization Histogram and make sure the Low/Medium/High utilization thresholds are correct for your system. You can manually adjust them, if required.
The UPI Utilization metric replaced QPI Utilization starting with systems based on Intel® microarchitecture code name Skylake.

Possible Issues

The system spent much time heavily utilizing UPI bandwidth. Improve data accesses using NUMA optimizations on a multi-socket system.

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.
