NUMA (Non Uniform Memory Access) means that memory access times of a program running on a CPU depends on the relative distance between the specific CPU and memory area. In fact, in NUMA systems, there usually is more than one memory controller, each one local to a processor (or set of processors). Accessing memory on a local controller is very fast, while getting and storing data from and on a remote one is quite more complex and slow.

This category contains all articles related to running Xen on NUMA machines, as well as the ongoing efforts for improving performances and, in general, support, for such usecase. Some general information about NUMA are available here:
