@olivierlambert said in NUMA-impact - Xeon/Epyc - 1P vs 2P:
There is no universal answer (because it's mostly depending on your VM load and what do you expect). As usual, my advice is to keep it simple if you don't have a problem with it (ie: you are satisfied by the perf.). Even a default EPYC configuration will be likely always better than a Xeon one.
After that, if you want to go deeper and learn the details, it's OK, let me just ping @tjkreidl who did a remarkable job (if I remember correctly) on this very topic.
Thanks for the mention, @olivierlambert ! Here's a link to part 3, which contains links back to parts 1 and 2. Note that NUMA will affect EPYC processors differently as they changed the die configuration at one point with the number of cores. I'm open for any questions on this topic. https://blogs.mycugc.org/2019/04/30/a-tale-of-two-servers-part-3-the-influence-of-numa-cpus-and-sockets-cores-persocket-plus-other-vm-settings-on-apps-and-gpu-performance/
