Hiya

Just wondering if anyone has any experience in setting up HugePage support on x86_64

don't really need it, but I like to poke around with new stuff, and I'm a little curious biggrin.gif

Many thanks

Hi there,
i'm used to tune up this parameter with regards of Oracle database usage.

Have a look e.g. here:
linux tunning

It's a good start smile.gif

It's also used in the Java world, though perhaps not as common as with Oracle databases. If you' re having a Java application laying around you can add -XX:+UseLargePages to the JVM argument list and it will be forced to use hugepages (note that the JVM fails to start if you incorrectly configured the hugepages!)
