In this course, Srihari Makineni, Senior Principal Engineer at Intel Corporation, discusses the 2nd Generation Intel® Xeon® Scalable processors and the three CPU SKUs that are optimized for NFV workloads. He reviews the motivation for creating these SKUs, their benefits and how to enable the SKUs and use their features. He details how to enable Intel® Speed Select Technology - Base Frequency (Intel® SST-BF), its impact on the platform and how the platform thermals change as a result of using the P1 frequency and the Intel SST-BF feature.
