Behind the Curtains: Predictable Performance with Nova

A behind the scenes look at booting a virtual machine.  Examine what happens when a VM is launched and booted from Cinder volumes with Neutron ports and PCI-passthrough/SRIOV.  A great introduction to Nova and Neutron to help users understand what is happening and how different configuration changes impact the VM performance.  Kernel tweaks, Numa placement, optimizations available but not well known.  People working with OpenStack in Telecom or the Internet of Things in production or developing on top of OpenStack would benefit from this talk to better understand how all the pieces come together to successfully deploy a virtual machine for predictable performance and how to troubleshoot problems when things go wrong. 


What can I expect to learn?

How to leverage OpenStack to deploy apps with predictable performance, leveraging all the great features of Nova.
