Accelerating Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7-based Linux Containers with Solarflare Onload | April 2015
This paper provides installation, configuration and tuning guidance for Docker containers running on Red Hat Enterprise Linux with Solarflare Onload network acceleration. It introduces container-related enhancements specific to Red Hat’s distribution, such as the atomic utility, the implementation of “super-privileged containers” (SPC) and heavily builds upon the Low Latency Performance Tuning Guide for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7. Finally, it provides a comparison of Onload-accelerated bare metal network latency tests versus Onload-accelerated Linux containers.
