Can someone give me advice on using NUMA with win10 .
Current specs: I have a z800 workstation with dual x5960 processors + 96gb (12x8gb stcicks speak evenly ) + PCIe NvMe 950 pro 256gb + PCIe lsi megaraid 9285e .
I understand what NUMA could do if correctly used which is add better memory bandwidth ( by a factor of the amount of processors or memory banks ) and better latency , both which would suit me as I use this z800 solely for a hyperthread supported application called Sonar Platinum, which would benefit from NUMA.
What I need to understand is when I enable NUMA in the bios
1) there is a option called NUMA split mode ? What benefits having this enabled for hyperthreaded applications.
2) how does win 10 manage NUMA nodes > does it do it automatically or do I have to set affinity in task manager and assign CPUs and nodes to hyperthreaded specific applications : I.e Sonar platinum ?
3) what additional information would you give to correctly enable NUMA on my system specs so I can properly test if NUMA works well on my system with my application/s.
