Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 133148
Maximum memory of kernel-smp and kernel-hugemem flipped
Last modified: 2014-08-04 18:15:01 EDT
Section 39.1 of the System Administraton Guide for RHEL 3 correctly
notes that kernel-hugemem uses the 4G/4G split but incorrectly claims
the maximum memory it supports on x86 is 16 GB. It likewise
incorrectly claims that the maximum memory supported by kernel-smp on
x86 is 64 GB.
This should be the other way around: kernel-smp maximum at 16 GB and
kernel-hugemem maximum at 64 GB.
Thanks a bunch Steve! The documentation team appreciates your efforts!
Please watch for this to be updated for the Web release of the SAG
(system admin guide) for RHEL4 in Feb. 05! :-)
