Hi,

Apologies that reply later.

Presumably, this can be beneficial from performance point of view in configurations with small number of worker processes, as various structures allocated by the master process after parsing configuration will be allocated from the same NUMA region the worker process runs on.

Yes,That's it.

The units is reqs/s, connected several second and calculate the average value, error margins is 3%.

I would expect performance with master of worker process on different chips to be smaller than that on the same chip, even with the patch applied.
> Well, with error margins we'll probably see there is no difference between 176020 and 180637, but this brings another question: where the difference between 129639 and 180637 comes from? Listening sockets created by the kernel on the same chip? So this probably means we shouldn't bind worker process in general, but rather create listenings sockets on the same chip instead? Note this is not the same, especially with reuseport, not to mention this cannot be done at all when we inherit listening sockets form previous configurations.

With error margins we consider there is no difference between 176020 and 180637. The difference between 129639 and 180637 is cause by the cross-chip between listening sockets and worker processes.
We bind worker process because some times we run serveral nginx instances in the same time, we can use worker processes to adapt to net init to improve the performance. If we don't bind worker the patch will not work.
When open the reuseport, the loss will not exist, no mater with the patch or without the patch, it's not effect the result.
When we inherit listening sockets form previous configurations, if we don't bind worker process, the patch will not work, if we bind worker process, we should bind it to the same chip with the listening sockets inherit from previous configurations.

You means serveral nginx instances or one mater with serveral worker processes? If you means one master and serveral worker processes, we test 32core and each core has a worker process, so our test situation is 1 master with 32 worker processes.

ngx_get_cpu_affinity() and ngx_setaffinity() variable which is named "ngx_cycle", we assigns values to it after ngx_init_cycle() is finished, so I can't use them.
It just in the situation which workers are concentrated in the same chip, and the master and workers are in diff chip, the performance shows mach loss, which is because of the cross-chip delay. When the master and worker are random distribute, no mater which chip the master on should be similar, the migrate is no needed.
