Servers running QIX engine benefit from the following settings on average:
Enabled (for 4-socket solutions, see the disclaimer below)
Power Management (Power profile)
Max performance (BIOS and Windows setting)
Enabled (this means that NUMA is disabled – see below for more information)
Intel Turbo Boost
Configured for best performance (see below for more information)
Different manufacturers and models have different names and ways for tuning these settings. Refer to the documentation for your server for equivalents to the settings listed above.
Hyper-threading: For 4-socket solutions, having hyper-threading enabled is beneficial on average. There are, however, cases when disabling it leads to improved performance.
Node Interleaving: Disabling NUMA has no significant impact on the performance as the product adapts its behavior if NUMA is enabled.
