KSM and MX Linux

#1 Post by postcd » Thu Nov 08, 2018 5:22 pm

Apparently MX Linux has KSM disabled by default, when i enabled it:
echo 1 >/sys/kernel/mm/ksm/run
echo 1000 >/sys/kernel/mm/ksm/sleep_millisecs
i saved around 10MB of memory using this memory deduplication mechanism.
OS: 4.15.4-1~mx17+1 (2018-02-23) x86_64 ; XFCE 4 ; MB: G31M ES2L rev. 2.0 ; GPU: AMD Radeon RX 560 ; full HW specs. as of Oct 30/2018
