Network Resource Management (Task Map)

The following table lists different methods of establishing resource controls and determining how these resources are allocated for network processing.

For Instructions
Allocate rings to MAC clients.
Configure MAC clients on a datalink to use rings.
Assign a pool of CPUs to a datalink.
Use the pool property to allocate a set of CPUs to manage a zone's network processes.
Assign a set of CPUs to a defined datalink
On a system that has multiple CPUs, reserve a set of CPUs for networking purposes.
Implement network resource management by using flows on a physical network.
Isolate network traffic into individual flows. Then assign the flows a set amount of interface bandwidth among other flows.
