Subject Re: [ASF4.2.1] default to 64-bit system VM template
Date Wed, 23 Oct 2013 14:21:05 GMT
What would be the main reasoning behind this change? Surely the
minimalistic specifications that SystemVMs are assigned suit 32-bit better
in terms of Memory?

"The main disadvantage of 64-bit architectures is that, relative to 32-bit
architectures, the same data occupies more space in memory (due to longer
pointers and possibly other types, and alignment padding). This increases
the memory requirements of a given process and can have implications for
efficient processor cache utilization."
