      Description

      Downstream Change Summary

      After this change MongoDB will only run on Intel systems offering a Sandybridge (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Intel_CPU_microarchitectures) or newer microarchitecture. Attempting to start server binaries on systems not offering that level of hardware support will result in an immediate hard operating-system level crash (e.g. no MongoDB diagnostic will be provided).

      Note that we have similar minima already in place for power, s390x, and ARM systems, so this is just bringing x86_64 up to par.

      Description of Linked Ticket

      For all other architectures than x86_64, we have a known microarchitecture minimum. We should select one for x86_64 and set it at build time.
