Intel Page Modification Logging, a hardware virtualization feature: study and improvement for virtual machine working set estimation

whitePaper | January 7, 2020

Intel Page Modification Logging (PML) is a novel hardware feature for tracking virtual machine (VM) accessed memory pages. This task is essential in today’s data centers since it allows, among others, checkpointing, live migration and working set size (WSS) estimation. Relying on the Xen hypervisor, this paper studies PML from three angles: power consumption, efficiency, and performance impact on user applications. Our findings are as follows. First, PML does not incur any power consumption overhead. Second, PML reduces by up to 10.18% both VM live migration and checkpointing time. Third, PML slightly reduces by up to 0.95% the performance degradation on applications incurred by live migration and checkpointing.

THE VIRTUAL CLOUD NETWORK

whitePaper | January 15, 2020

Businesses are evolving faster than ever before. Key technologies such as the cloud, mobility and the Internet of Things (IoT) are enabling organizations to undertake broad and deep digital transformations—changing the way companies operate, creating new business models and lifting employee productivity to new heights. As digital transformation takes root in enterprises, a parallel shift is occurring from massive centralized data centers to the cloud and then to the edge of the network. It is at the edge where customer engagement and rich interactions are now happening; it’s also where customers and enterprises alike generate valuable data and insights. But to make it work—and to extract every bit of value—all of this needs to be connected back to the business.
