STAC Report: STAC-N1 with AMD Ryzen in Supermicro server
First STAC-N1 with AMD Ryzen™ CPUs sets records.
24 October 2023
AMD recently asked STAC to perform STAC-N1 Benchmark tests on a solution utilizing AMD Ryzen™ processors in Supermicro A+ servers. This came after a number of such tests that STAC has performed on AMD EPYC™ processors over the last three years. The STAC Report is available here.
STAC-N1 measures the performance of a host network stack (server, OS, drivers, host adapter) using a market data style workload. This benchmark was performed on a pair of Supermicro A+ AS-2015A-TR servers, each with a single 16-core AMD Ryzen™ 7950X processor @ 4.5 GHz (5.7 GHz Boost), an AMD Xilinx XtremeScale™ X2522-25G-PLUS Adapter and OpenOnload 126.96.36.199, and Red Hat Enterprise Linux 9.2. Communication was over 25GbE cross connects with forward error correction disabled.
AMD wished to highlight the following results:
- Compared to all publicly disclosed STAC-N1 results to date that used UDP:
- The lowest mean, median, 99 percentile, and maximum latency for the base rate of 100k messages per second (STAC.N1.β1.PINGPONG.LAT1)
- The highest maximum throughput tested of 1.6 million messages per second (STAC.N1.β1.PINGPONG.TPUT1)
- The lowest mean, median, 99 percentile, and maximum SupplyToReceive latency at the highest rate tested (STAC.N1.β1.PINGPONG.LAT2)
- The lowest mean, median, 99 percentile, and maximum SendToReceive latency at the highest rate tested (STAC.N1.β1.PINGPONG.LAT3)
