Benchmarking the Network Data Plane of NFV vdevices and vlinks (OPNFV VSPERF, Cisco) - Maciek Konstantynowicz, Cisco; Maryam Tahhan, Intel

Performance of virtual devices (vswitches, vforwarders, VNFs) and virtual connectivity (VNF-to-NIC, VNF-to-VNF, NIC-to-NIC), is a key consideration for any NFV design and infrastructure – both the methodology of benchmarking deterministic performance, as well as the actual test results and their understanding. The OPNFV VSPERF project addresses this important domain. This session reviews and combines VSPERF results with with the results of Cisco internal benchmarking project that evaluates best-of-breed NFV open-source and commercial technologies. The talk includes lessons learned in VNF benchmarking methodology, extended RFC2544 methodology, results highlights, runtime x86 resource analysis and what matters conclusions on the state of virtualize networking based on KVM.
