The whole point of simulation is to model the behavior of a design and potential changes against various conditions to determine whether we are getting an expected response; and simulation in software is far cheaper than building hardware and performing a physical simulation and modifying the hardware model each time.
Intel's Cache Monitoring Technology (CMT) feature was introduced with the Intel®Xeon® E5 2600 v3 product family in 2014. This feature enables fine-grained tracking of L3 cache occupancy, enabling detailed profiling and tracking of threads, applications or VMs.
Previous blog posts referenced below provide an overview of various aspects of the feature:
In today’s data centers, big data has placed a greater demand for performance at large scale for storage systems. The Lustre* file system was purpose-built to provide sustained storage performance and stability on a large scale for high-performance computing (HPC) systems. However, as commercial enterprises have begun to deploy HPC technologies, Intel created an enhanced version of Lustre known as Intel® Enterprise Edition for Lustre* software. Enterprise Edition enables fully parallel I/O throughput across clients, servers, and storage devices.
Intel® ISA-L provides the tools to help accelerate and optimize storage on Intel® architecture (IA) for everything from small office NAS appliances to enterprise storage systems. Intel® ISA-L can run on various Intel® server processors and provides operation acceleration through the following instruction sets:
