Virtual Memory Management Research


Hello,

I have to write a paper on Virtual Memory Management in Linux. This is for a homework assignment. Can anyone help me with some useful links? Please note that I am not asking anyone to do my homework or anything like this. Just in case you have something in mind, or you have read something that might be of help, please be so kind to provide me with a link or guidance.

Thank You

Edit: I thought that it would be a good idea to post what I already have to avoid having some of the same links:

Dunno if its useful. Not checked in any way so YMMV(VM):

...but in the end a picture always is better, and comparing Linux with other serious operating systems builds a bigger picture (though this one goes beyond talking only about MM): http://bulk.fefe.de/scalability/

I actually did not expect anyone to respond.
I'll tell you why I responded:
- you told us up front its an assignment and you'd be doing the work yourself,
- you put your question as a question (using a question mark and no "I need" or "I want" or "give me" crap),
- you posted links you already found.
That's gotta be rewarded.

BTW, if the assignment is done and it's worth reading, post a link OK?

Report is ready

Allright, my report is ready. I hope ya'll guys like it. I am open to any suggestions for any necessary changes. I would also like to post this somewhere on this site as a wiki or something if you think it's a good idea. Should I do it and if yes, where and how?

Here is the link:
