In this blog post, I’ll look for the bottleneck that prevented the performance in my previous post from achieving better results.
The powerful machine I used in the tests in my previous post has a comparatively slow disk, and therefore I expected my tests would hit a point when I couldn’t increase performance further due to the disk speed.
Processors: physical = 4, cores = 72,
virtual = 144, hyperthreading = yes
Disk speed: about 3K …
