How to use a terabyte of RAM
Posted Mar 14, 2008 21:47 UTC (Fri) by dlang (✭ supporter ✭, #313)
but the storage does not show up as system memory, even inside violin
since it can be either 500G of ram or a much larger amount of flash, I'm sure that it shows up
to the Linux OS on the system as storage of some sort, not as system Ram

Until recently I'd have suspected that the page replacement algorithms
would scream and die at the sight of that much RAM, but I've seen logs of
systems with 1.5Tb of accessible RAM, so this sort of thing is happening.
(That was a big Altix, IIRC.)
