I work as a DBA for a MAJOR company.
We are allocating multi Gb shared memory segments for our databases
(we have broken the 4GB for 1 shared memory segment size recently!). Large pages for large (>1GB?) shared memory allocations is all we need.
And we want these to be what Solaris calls ISM (intimiate shared
memory) i.e. shared page tables.
Oh, and pinned into physical memory (non-pageable and NOT looked
at by the paging/swapping code).
