Huge Pages - final tweaks


Recommended Posts

 

Dear Community, 

 

I would like to have these Hugepages supported now :-)
I am thus referring to this thread here, which seems to be closed. I have tried the following to enable hugepages AND get them working until 1 GB. 
See me output:

Thanks so far!

Question: Why is HUGEpages 1 GIg not available? 
How do I set the value correct?

My output:

sysctl -a | grep hugep
sysctl: error reading key 'net.ipv6.conf.all.stable_secret': I/O error
sysctl: error reading key 'net.ipv6.conf.default.stable_secret': I/O error
sysctl: error reading key 'net.ipv6.conf.eth0.stable_secret': I/O error
sysctl: error reading key 'net.ipv6.conf.lo.stable_secret': I/O error
vm.nr_hugepages = 2349
vm.nr_hugepages_mempolicy = 2349
vm.nr_overcommit_hugepages = 0

Update:
Having applied the Script from the thread linked to above, I get another outcome.
Is that as it is supposed to be??

Thanks again

alpinehost:/home/alp# chown root /usr/share/hugepages.sh 
alpinehost:/home/alp# /usr/share/./hugepages.sh enable
Huge pages enabled
alpinehost:/home/alp# sysctl -a | grep hugep
sysctl: error reading key 'net.ipv6.conf.all.stable_secret': I/O error
sysctl: error reading key 'net.ipv6.conf.default.stable_secret': I/O error
sysctl: error reading key 'net.ipv6.conf.eth0.stable_secret': I/O error

vm.nr_hugepages = 9
vm.nr_hugepages_mempolicy = 9
vm.nr_overcommit_hugepages = 0
alpinehost:/home/alp# 

The vm.nr_hugepages changed dramatically. What does it mean anyways?
