How Small Can it Be?: The Design of a Cost-Effective Side-core for I/O Virtualization

Lee, Chung (Brian); Strazdins, Peter


I/O processing in virtualization is expensive. It significantly slows down application performance running on virtual machines due to frequent context switches and resource contentions. There are several methods to address the problem. One solution is the side-core approach to carry out virtualization I/O processing on a dedicated core, which offers close to bare-metal performance, without sacrificing important virtualization features. Although the number of cores is continually increasing and...[Show more]
