Mesh Commander - Improvements & Interceptor

Last week, we released the latest version of Manageability Commander Web Edition with many new improvements. Intel AMT is taking steps to fully support the web and this starts with a entirely web based Intel AMT console. The latest version of Manageability Commander is entirely built in Javascript. The new Manageability Commander Web Edition has plenty of new improvements, and here are just a few:

Meshcentral - Now with integrated Manageabiltiy Commander Web Edition

The new Manageability Commander code base offers many benefits. For example, the hardware KVM feature in Meshcentral used to not support compression, and so, was very slow. The new viewer supports full ZRLE8 and ZRLE16 tile compression allowing for much better KVM performance over the Internet. All of the WSMAN/KVM/SOL smarts is built in JavaScript and runs in the browser, greatly simplifying the server that focuses on connection relay. Administrators can now manage Intel AMT user accounts, event log and more… as Manageability Commander evolves, new versions of the code will be integrated into Meshcentral, so the console will get better over time.

Intel's Cache Monitoring Technology: Software Support and Tools

Introduction

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:

Getting Kernel-Based Virtual Machine (KVM) to Work with Intel® Xeon Phi™ Coprocessors

The current Kernel-based Virtual Machine (KVM) software does not recognize the existence of Intel® Xeon Phi™ coprocessors. In order to make the KVM recognize the coprocessors, we provide patches under the GPL license, to rebuild the kernel and qemu-kvm packages. The patches provided here are used for Red Hat Enterprise Linux* 6.2 (RHEL* 6.2).

Attached is a step-by-step procedure on how to make KVM on RHEL* 6.2 recognize Intel® Xeon Phi™ coprocessors, including a zip file of the patches.
