"Understanding the Linux® Virtual Memory Manager"

Finally, a comprehensive guide to the Linux VM! This book describes VM in unprecedented detail, presenting both theoretical foundations and a line-by-line source code commentary.

VM's behavior affects every Linux kernel subsystem and dramatically impacts overall performance. But until now, there was only one way to understand VM: study the poorly documented source one line at a time. Now there's an easier, faster alternative. It systematically covers everything from physical memory description to out-of-memory management. Coverage includes:
  • Linux VM 2.4 architecture in depth-with diagrams and call graphs
  • Physical memory description, page tables, address spaces, and memory allocation
  • High memory, swapping, shared memory, and much more
  • Expert guidance for analyzing the code of any open source project
  • New Linux 2.6 kernel features in every chapter
Well organized and superbly written, Understanding the Linux® Virtual Memory Manager will be indispensable to every kernel programmer and researcher.

By: Mel Gorman. Published by Prentice Hall. Part of the Bruce Perens' Open Source Series.
