System / AMI: Ubuntu Server 18.04 LTS (HVM), SSD Volume Type

Which instance to use?

Instance: 5d.large with a Frequency of 3 GHz.
CPU: Intel Xeon Platinum 8124M
Turbo boost: 3,4 GHz to 3,5GHz depend of how many cores you are running on it.

What to do for running it at it max performances?

For this, we have to set CPU settings on boot:

sudo vim /etc/default/grub

edit it and at the end of

just before the last ",
you will have to add:
intel_idle.max_cstate=1 processor.max_cstate=1

It should be something like that:

GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="console=tty0 console=ttyS0,115200n8 net.ifnames=0 biosdevname=0 nvme_core.io_timeout=4294967295 intel_idle.max_cstate=1 processor.max_cstate=1"
