Experimental Evaluation of NUMA Effects on Database Management Systems
NUMA systems with multiple CPUs and large main memories are common today. Consequently, DataBase Management Systems (DBMSs) in data centers are deployed on NUMA systems. They serve a wide range of database use-cases, single large applications having high performance needs as well as many small applications that are consolidated on one machine to save resources and increase utilization. Database servers often show a natural partitioning in the data that is accessed, e.g., caused by multiple applications accessing only their data.
