Subject Re: Page Memory behavior with default memory policy
Date Tue, 18 Apr 2017 01:00:17 GMT

All the nodes will request its own continuous memory region that takes 70-80% of all RAM from
an underlying operation system. However, the operating system will not outfit the nodes with
physical pages mapped to RAM immediately allowing every node's process to start successfully.
The nodes will communicate to RAM via a virtual memory which in its turn will give an access
to physical pages whenever is needed applying low level eviction and swapping techniques.

Alex G., please confirm that we’re applying on this low level guarantees in our page memory
