Re: [Xen-devel] CPU/RAM/PCI diagram tool


I apologize for the delayed response.
I'm not associated with GSoC, doing this purely out of my own interest.

I have a pretty solid knowledge of x86 system topology. 
Aware of concepts like CPU/SOC having integrated north bridge. NUMA zones of a server platform separated via QPI/HT links, etc. 

I don't have much experience displaying this information.

Hello All,

My name is Gerard.
I am new to the Xen development community and would like to get started.
I saw the Xen development projects list and will start on the CPU/RAM/PCI diagram tool as my first project.

During my day job I’m a software developer writing networking applications for a variety of computing architectures (x86, Tilera, and more),
using technologies similar to and including PF_RINGS and DPDK. Due to the work I’ve been doing the past few years Ive taken an interest in the Xen project.

I’m looking forward to to working on the project and engaging with the Xen developer community.
I’m on the ##xen channel as SpiffySpivey.




Thankyou for taking an interest.

Having a day job, I presume you are not associated with GSoC, and are doing this of your own volition?  As you can imagine, there is substantially more than 1 projects worth of potential work to be done, and plenty of room for expansion.

How much knowledge do you have x86 architecture and system topology, or the methods of conveying this information?
