39cfece8 6== DESCRIPTION

MT
7This page contains a summary of some performance tuning techniques
8that this system is using.
9
10=== SMP Affinity
11
12This system is automatically using SMP affinity for every physical
13network controller, if supported.
14
15A processor core is assigned to handle all interrupts of a certain
16network controller which will result in minimising cache misses,
17reducing network latency and quite possibly increasing throughput.
18
19The algorithm is trying to balance all network controllers across
20all processors.
