The data streams optimizer focuses on tuning the I/O fabric to enhance the transfer of data between two processor subsystems. In the context of the tool, the transfer of data is referred to as
. The tool also changes system power management. It reduces power management to satisfy the most stringent real-time requirements, or increases power management in cases where the real-time requirements are more relaxed. This makes the data streams optimizer a powerful tool that ensures the system is optimally configured for a given use case.
