Blog – Effective Network Load Distribution Across CPU Cores Using Multiqueue on RHEL6. With the advent of 10Gbps network adapters, the CPU core is increasingly becoming a bottle-neck in processing network traffic. But using multiple cores to drive I/O through a single, shared queue requires software locking mechanisms that might result in reduced efficiency. Multiqueue provides a way to overcome this inefficiency by distributing the network packets processing in multiple queues of the network adapter across multiple cores.
