Throughput and latency are at a constant tension. Optimizing for throughput requires running machines at high utilization, which increases queuing delays and hurts latency. This talk will show how high throughput and low latency can both be achieved in a single application by using application-level priority scheduling.
Vertical scalability, or how a single node is a network
Shard-per-core, shared nothing design
Schedulers for CPU and IO
Prioritizing multiple workloads on the same cluster
Getting the most out of the Linux OS and C++20
