Hello to everyone  

SuSE SLES 10 64bit, Oracle standalone (no RAC)  

We are planning to utilize hugepages on systems that come with 32GB to 64GB of memory. We are following steps from Metalink note 560501.1.  

Are there some real performance gains when using hugepages? Are there some new problems introduced with this option?  

Looking forward for answers,

Vladimir Barac
