Vortrag: Low-Level Memory Management in the Linux Kernel

Jörg Rödel (Kernel-Developer, AMD) / Homepage

Termin:  Samstag, 16:00 Uhr, Raum V5

The main purpose of the Linux kernel is to abstract the hardware for the applications. An important part of the hardware is the computer's main memory. This talk gives an introduction to the algorithms and techniques the Linux kernel uses to manage the memory for itself and the application. It will concentrate on the allocators implemented for the available pages and the different SLAB allocators. The talk will also explain why the allocators perform well down from embedded devices up to large scale NUMA machines.

Erwünschte Vorkenntnisse: Some basic knowledge about processor memory management units as well as data structures and algorithms in general is helpful (but not necessary) to understand the talk.
