[dpdk-users] NICs on Intel platforms

I had a question about memory requirements.

The following section of the docs says:

Ensure that each memory channel has at least one memory DIMM inserted, and
that the memory size for each is at least 4GB. *Note*: this has one of the
most direct effects on performance.


We are considering a project that has 2 dimm slots and will be using 16gb
in one slot and leaving the other empty.

Is it the empty slot that causes the performance hit?
