Can core affinity be defined for fw_workers manually ?

Can core affinity be defined for fw_workers manually ?

Hi Team,

Please excuse me if this question has already been posted in some other thread, I would like to know if there is any way to tweak the CPU core affinity settings for the fw_workers manually and not using dynamic dispatcher.

Thanks in advance.

I believe this was covered as part of Timothy Hall‌'s recent TechTalk: TechTalk: Security Gateway Performance Optimization with Tim Hall

Hi PhoneBoy,

Thank you for your response, however, I cannot find any way to assign cores to fw_workers in Tim slide.

You can change the mix of SND/fw_workers using cpconfig.

You can use fw ctl affinity to change the distribution of these cores as needed.
