Anatomy of Linux Kernel Shared Memory.

Memory de-duplication in the Linux kernel

Summary:
Linux® as a hypervisor includes a number of innovations, and one of the more interesting changes in the 2.6.32 kernel is Kernel Shared Memory (KSM). KSM allows the hypervisor to increase the number of concurrent virtual machines by consolidating identical memory pages. Explore the ideas behind KSM (such as storage de-duplication), its implementation, and how you manage it.
