XCollOpts: A Novel Improvement of Network Virtualizations in Xen for I/O-Latency Sensitive Applications on Multicores


It has long been recognized that the Credit scheduler selectively favors CPU-bound applications whereas for I/O-latency sensitive workloads, such as those related to stream-based audio/video services, it only exhibits tolerable, or even worse, unacceptable performance. The reasons behind this phenomenon are the poor understanding (to some degree) of the… (More)
