Topic Description


Overview and discussion of the new LFN CSIT Dashboard,, covering VPP and DPDK network data plane testing, performance and telemetry.

Topic Overview

Will cover a number of dashboard usability scenarios including results comparisons between platforms, drill-downs into key compute efficiency metrics and working with data to detect and track performance anomalies.

Will use performance data from CI/CD automated tests executed on a range of servers running in labs hosted by LFN, including: Intel Xeon (clx, icx, spr), Intel Atom (dnv) and Arm (Taishan, ThunderX2, Ampere Altra).

If you are interested in network performance testing in general, or project specifically, this session is for you.

  • Q&A
    • Dave Wallace suggested creating a way for identifying what testbeds are used for a given protocol.  Perhaps starting with a wiki page of links to test results.  Ideally a search function based on separate parameters would be best.
    • Dave Wallace asked if anyone was using data for marketing purposes and required static data format?  No response from those present.  Maciek Konstantynowicz indicated that feedback so far has been that consumers prefer the dynamic views of the data and folks take screenshots to include in marketing collateral.
