Stephan Ewen commented on FLINK-3163:

What steps does it involve to add this to Flink?

> Configure Flink for NUMA systems
> --------------------------------
>                 Key: FLINK-3163
>                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/FLINK-3163
>             Project: Flink
>          Issue Type: Improvement
>          Components: Startup Shell Scripts
>    Affects Versions: 1.0.0
>            Reporter: Greg Hogan
>            Assignee: Greg Hogan
> On NUMA systems Flink can be pinned to a single physical processor ("node") using {{numactl
--membind=$node --cpunodebind=$node <command>}}. Commonly available NUMA systems include
the largest AWS and Google Compute instances.
> For example, on an AWS c4.8xlarge system with 36 hyperthreads the user could configure
a single TaskManager with 36 slots or have Flink create two TaskManagers bound to each of
the NUMA nodes, each with 18 slots.
> There may be some extra overhead in transferring network buffers between TaskManagers
on the same system, though the fraction of data shuffled in this manner decreases with the
size of the cluster. The performance improvement from only accessing local memory looks to
be significant though difficult to benchmark.
> The JobManagers may fit into NUMA nodes rather than requiring full systems.
