SIG-Linux Topic: All about computing architecture: focus on how Linux handles memory

Presented by Sharan Kalwani

Sharan’s presentation this month will be all about one important aspect of computing architecture: namely memory.
Sometimes erroneously called storage (which actually deals with long term memory), he will instead focus on computer memory organization and all the various elements in it.
The second part of the talk will then deal exclusively with how Linux kernels treat and organizes memory.
It is indeed a bit different and sometimes can be viewed as an advantageous feature. Other times folks argue that it hurts performance rather than be a positive thing.
No prior knowledge of computing architecture is assumed or the Linux kernel. The talk will be fast paced and full of details.
