Enhanced VNF Placement

Registered by yong sheng gong on 2015-12-06

some VNF performance constructs we like to enable in Tacker VNF placement:
1.NUMA topology
2.cpu-pinning
3.huge pages
4.PCI passthrough
5.SR-IOV support (stretch goal)
At the end of the spec the goal is to place a VNF with and without the above smarts and show the performance gain achieved through Tacker's Enhanced VNF Placement (EVP)
