Jumbo frames Performance Analysis Over Red Hat OpenStack 16.1 Infrastructure
Last Updated: Jul 09, 2021
Communications service providers support many services, for example, broadband access services, Voice over IP services, call center, IPTV and cable services. One of the most important measurements is the network capability to support zero packet loss (ZPL). Any packet loss means disruption to services, especially for emergency call centers. Traditionally, fixed network appliances can deliver the performance needed, and they do so with assurance. With SDN and NFV transformation, it is extremely important to show the ZPL capability expected performance over the infrastructure. This collaborated whitepaper between Intel and Dell aims to provide guidance on jumbo packet size for Zero Packet Loss (ZPL) test cases over an OpenStack infrastructure. In addition, Red Hat engineering team also helped out in finalizing result section and verified the best practices applied in this activity. The key learnings and best-known practices documented in this paper can help your testing and analysis.
