Author: Kan Hayashi

Introduction

 Based on demand to analyze and tune SPDK application, Intel® System Studio 2018 offers a new feature to analyze the utilization of the disk subsystem, CPU and processor buses with Intel® VTune™ Amplifier 2018. SPDK stands for Storage Performance Development Kit, originally created by Intel for OEMs/ODMs/ISVs to design hardware platforms or software applications with Intel® Non-Volatile Memory Express (NVMe). Currently SPDK is an open source, refer to http://www.spdk.io/. Through using sample application bdevperf of SPDK with Intel® Optane™ SSD DC P4800X, introduce how to make use of this new feature of Intel® System Studio 2018. If users are not familiar with SPDK or Intel® VTune™ Amplifier, please refer to http://spdk.io and Help of “Intel® VTune™ Amplifier” respectively.
