• Real-time visibility into server memory health
• ...Predicting catastrophic server memory failures before they happen
• Intel® Memory Failure Prediction
Meituan-Dianping (Meituan), a China leading e-commerce platform for services,
setup Intel® Memory Failure Prediction (Intel® MFP) for a test deployment over
several thousands of servers based on Intel® Xeon® Scalable Processors to help
improve the performance and reliability of its server memory which is essential to
fast data analytics computing.
Meituan deployed Intel® MFP in its data center, integrating it into their existing
management solutions to take advantage of its memory analysis and predictive
capabilities. The aim is to help them analyze and model server memory-failure data
in order to predict potential failures, prevent downtime, and optimize their current
Dual Inline Memory Module (DIMM) upgrade.
The Intel® MFP deployment resulted in improved memory reliability by predictions
based on the analysis of the micro-level memory failure logs. Intel® MFP allowed
data center staff to migrate workloads before catastrophic memory failures could
happen, use page offlining policies to isolate unreliable memory cells or pages, or
replace failingDIMMs before they reach a terminal stage, thus reducing downtime by
responding appropriately before server failure occurs.
“We would thank Intel for Memory Failure Prediction collaboration with Meituan”
said Rui Guo who is the leader of Infrastructure/Server technology at Meituan,
“the testing results indicates, with Intel® MFP’s prediction capabilities, it could
significantly reduce server hardware failures by up to 40 percent.”.
Case Study | Intel® Memory Failure Prediction Enhances Reliability And Eradicates Impact of Memory Failure
Meituan-Dianping, a China leading e-commerce platform for
services, has Meituan, Dianping, Takeaway, Taxi, Mobike and
other well-known apps for customers. Services include
catering, takeaway, taxi, bike, hotels There are more than
200 categories such as tourism, film, entertainment and the
business covers 2800 cities. To remain successful and
competitive, Meituan has to be able to rely on the health of
its data center infrastructure and predict failures to act
Memory failures are one of the top three hardware failures
that occur in data centers today. Using Machine Learning to
analyze real-time memory health data would make it possible
to predict such failures ahead of time, and this ultimately
translates to a better experience for their customers.
This is why Meituan deployed Intel® MFP in a test
environment containing several thousands of servers with
Intel® Xeon® Scalable Processors. They integrated Intel® MFP
into their existing data center monitoring solution and were
able to gain greater insights into server memory health.
Intel® MFP is an ideal solution for organizations such as online
services platforms and cloud service providers relying heavily
on server hardware reliability, availability and serviceability.
The solution helps to significantly reduce memory failure
events by analyzing data and then predicting catastrophic
