Site Offer A programmer who wants to understand the workings of the Linux Virtual Memory Manager has no choice but to study the kernel source code line-by-line - many would agree an excruciatingly difficult, laborious and time-consuming task. Now, however, you can go through the pain and still have time and money left over for a few pints...

Understanding the Linux Virtual Memory Manager dedicates itself to explaining, in detail, how the memory manager is implemented in Linux. This cuts down the time needed to understand it from many months to mere weeks.

The Linux Virtual Memory Manager is the single most important component of the Linux kernel. The behaviour of the Virtual Memory Manager affects all other kernel subsystems, and has a dramatic impact on overall system performance.
