[RFC][-mm PATCH 8/8] Add switch to control what type of pages to limit (v3)

Balbir Singh balbir at linux.vnet.ibm.com
Fri Jul 20 01:25:28 PDT 2007



Choose if we want cached pages to be accounted or not. By default both
are accounted for. A new set of tunables are added.

echo -n 1 > mem_control_type

switches the accounting to account for only mapped pages

echo -n 2 > mem_control_type

switches the behaviour back
