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

Have a look e.g. here:

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!)
