Intel Speed Select (SST)
Intel Speed Select is a suite of technologies to optimize processor performance according to deployed applications.
Intel Speed Select Base Frequency (SST-BF)allows CPU cores to run at different base frequencies (not Turbo Boost). E.g. For the Intel Xeon 6230N processor (20 cores, 2.3 GHz, 125W), 6 higher priority cores can run at 2.7 GHz base frequency and 14 cores at 2.1 GHz lower frequency.
A more detailed description of Intel SST-BF technology including benchmarks, including optimal settings for the server BIOS, operating system (Linux) or the script used to set the SST-BF parameters.
SST-BF is interesting for deploying Network Function Virtualization (NFV) scenarios where networking service runs in a virtualized environment on higher-priority kernels (and thus higher frequency) and virtual servers on lower-priority kernels themselves.
Intel Speed Select Power Profiles (SST-PP) will allow you to set up three profiles to select the number of cores and the operating frequency.
