    2. Fan Zhang - sorry for being late. (fan_zhang, 14:08:43)
    3. Tibor, added all new icx testbeds, they've been tested with rc2 images, quite a few issues, all fixed (mackonstan, 14:08:48)
    4. Welcome Fan! (mackonstan, 14:08:59)
    5. Tibor, added comparison tables with throughput normalized to 2 GhZ frequency (mackonstan, 14:10:41)
    6. Tibor, the new comparison tables are available for preview here (mackonstan, 14:14:05)
    7. https://s3-docs.fd.io/csit/master/report/_static/vpp/norm-compare-testbeds-3n-skx-3n-icx-1c-pdr.txt (mackonstan, 14:14:37)
    8. the original comparison tables are still there (mackonstan, 14:15:21)

    10. Vratko proposed improvement, add new column to existing tables, call it normalized diff and be done with it (mackonstan, 14:23:28)
    11. no need to calling out any normalizaation freq as it cancels out (mackonstan, 14:23:50)
    12. AGREED: go ahead with Vratko's proposal, Tibor will push a new patch (mackonstan, 14:24:15)

    16. Vratko, looking at regressions, one at 2% but noisy so unclear if a real one (mackonstan, 14:26:41)
    17. Vratko, some 3n-dnv fluctuations due to wrong links speed negotiations (mackonstan, 14:27:44)
    18. Vratko, 100 GbE multi-core speedup results are looking good, close to linear :) (mackonstan, 14:28:13)
    19. Vratko, Peter, 2n-zn2 multi-core speedup graphs are not looking too good (mackonstan, 14:30:46)
