When network functions share the same server, they achieve slower performance than if they run alone. But why does this happen even when the server is configured to isolate processors and NIC queues? And how can we predict the slowdown? Antonis Manousis explains today at SIGCOMM 2020. You can read the paper here or watch the video to learn more.
