STAC Report: RMDS on Intel Dunnington with Cisco Nexus 10GigE

Highest Point-to-Point Server output to date on a single server: 15.2 million updates per second from a single machine. Intel, which provides multi-core CPUs and 10GigE interface cards, and Cisco, which provides 10 GigE switches, asked STAC to measure the performance of their latest products in a market data environment using RMDS. The goal of the project was to find the maximum P2PS Producer 50/50 throughput on a single server using Intel Dunnington processors over a Cisco Nexus 5020 switch. To summarize, we found: - Highest Point-to-Point Server throughput to date on a single server: - 15,150,000 updates per second through a single Point-to-Point Server machine with jumbo frames (MTU = 9000 bytes). - 11,362,500 updates per second through a single Point-to-Point Server machine with standard frames (MTU = 1500 bytes).
