"Do not be a programmer" and it's very cool written how programmers think. I'm not a programmer, but I begin to understand them. The profession of the tester is not the profession of a programmer, but knowing the basics of programming is simply vital.

Data warehouse performance: new digits

Data warehouse performance: new digitsIn our previous post, we shared our measurements of hypervisor performance after installing patches against the vulnerabilities of Meltdown and Specter. Today it's time to talk about the performance of the data warehouse.
 
 
 
 
Thanks to the optimizations of VzKernel and its recompilation with the "Retpoline" option, we replaced the vulnerable machine code sequences and almost completely eliminated the performance problems caused by the need to protect the hypervisor from vulnerabilities in Intel processors. As a result, the decrease in productivity was reduced to 1-2%. However, against this ...
