Whitepaper: Profiling Memory Subsystem Performance in an Advanced POWER Virtualization Environment

by University of Texas at El PasoJan 01, 2008

Processor virtualization facilitates the time-sharing of fixed set of hardware resources by a number of different operating system execution environments. One of its advantages is that this technology facilitates server consolidation, reducing both operating costs and power consumption. Virtualization incurs a performance penalty due to added complexity and conflicts arising from sharing fixed set of hardware resources. This research outlines and uses performance evaluation framework and
