Linux-mm.org is a wiki for documenting how memory management works and for coordinating new memory management development projects. Please help editing this wiki. Thank you.
LinuxMMDocumentation contains information on how to tweak the Linux kernel memory management subsystem.
LinuxMMInternals explains how some of the Linux kernel memory management works.
To subscribe to the linux-mm mailing list, email firstname.lastname@example.org and tell it you want to "subscribe linux-mm".
If you like IRC, you can join us on irc.oftc.net in #mm.
You can also discuss things on the Kernelnewbies Memory Management web forum.
Some of the more active current Linux memory management projects are:
CompressedCaching - Reduce I/O by keeping more data in memory.
AdvancedPageReplacement The time needed to swap a single program into memory is ever increasing, so page replacement is becoming more and more important.
NetworkStorageDeadlock - storage over network has a deadlock problem, where it can take memory to free memory.
PageTrace - a kernel patch and tool to analyze memory access patterns.
HugePages - Improving the availability and usability of huge pages
Superpages - Port of Rice University's Superpages to Linux (2.6 kernel).
