Deep Dive on Physical and Virtual NUMA: Save Your Virtual Machines from Certain Doom-A

There’s more to nonuniform memory access (NUMA) than physical boundaries in your server hardware. Putting the “deep” back into “deep dive,” Rob and Shawn will use this session to deliver everything you ever wanted to know about physical NUMA and virtual NUMA settings in VMware vSphere, Microsoft Windows, and SQL Server to aid you in getting the settings right to maximize performance. In addition to an overview of NUMA, we’ll discuss some nuances of NUMA that are not commonly known, the effects of hot-adding memory and CPU, selecting cores vs. sockets for your virtual machines, default calculation behavior, performance penalties for getting it wrong, and more.
