On a NUMA architecture, if there is a huge process say

  running on NUMA node 0 and it is migrated to NUMA node 1 and you want to copy the process address space from NUMA node 0 to NUMA node 1 local memory how would you do that?

Interview Answer

1 Answer


The interesting thing was that while I will be copying the memory page by page we need to make sure that during copying the page is not modified locally. We can do this by changing the PTE R/W bit to read only while the page is being copied.
