Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 68958
[RFE] user-space method/binary for mlock'ing the pages of another process
Last modified: 2008-08-01 12:22:52 EDT
basically, i'd love to be able to run a command, as root is fine, to mlock the
pages of a currently running app. Since this command would be in another
process and therefore not the same VM area (barring the strace-ish tricks) then
it seems like it can really only request that the kernel do this operation for
There's a good # of apps that I only use on an interactive basis but take a good
chunk of memory, and it'd be nice to get them pinned so that when I come back to
them the next morning I'm not waiting "forever" for them to swap back in.
Is this already doable and I just don't see it?
Thanks for the bug report. However, Red Hat no longer maintains this version of
