In his announcement of the release, Linux creator Linus Torvalds referred readers to the Kernel Newbies site for a full description of its features.
The addition of RPS and RFS technology "effectively emulates what a multiqueue NIC can provide, but instead it is implemented in software and for all kind of network hardware, including single queue cards and not excluding multiqueue cards," Kernel Newbies explained.
A benchmark test, in fact, recently showed how an eight-core Intel (Nasdaq: INTC) CPU-based server with an Intel e1000e network adapter went from 104K tps at about 30 percent CPU usage to 303K tps at 61 percent CPU usage when using RPS and RFS.
In other words, the technology almost tripled performance while doubling overall system utilization, Charles King, principal analyst at Pund-IT, told LinuxInsider.
"The context for this is that the industry and businesses are firmly moving into a world where multicore technology is the processor technology of choice across the x86 world -- it doesn't matter if you're using Intel or AMD," King explained.
