Unlock System Performance In Dynamic Environments

Intel® Resource Director Technology (Intel® RDT) brings new levels of visibility and control over how shared resources such as last-level cache (LLC) and memory bandwidth are used by applications, virtual machines (VMs), and containers. It’s the next evolutionary leap in workload consolidation density, performance consistency, and dynamic service delivery, helping to drive efficiency and flexibility across the data center while reducing overall total cost of ownership (TCO). As software-defined infrastructure and advanced resource-aware orchestration technologies increasingly transform the industry, Intel® RDT is a key feature set to optimize application performance and enhance the capabilities of orchestration and virtualization management server systems using Intel® Xeon® processors.

Intel® Resource Director Technology (Intel® RDT) Framework

Intel® RDT provides a framework with several component features for cache and memory monitoring and allocation capabilities, including CMT, CAT, CDP, MBM, and MBA. These technologies enable tracking and control of shared resources, such as the Last Level Cache (LLC) and main memory (DRAM) bandwidth, in use by many applications, containers or VMs running on the platform concurrently. RDT may aid “noisy neighbor” detection and help to reduce performance interference, ensuring the performance of key workloads in complex environments.
