[Paper] - An Evolutionary Study of Linux Memory Management for Fun and Profit

Memory management主要的功能是page mapping, memory protection, and sharing, 但隨著時間不斷的演進已經算是kernel裡不小的subsystem. 這份研究分析2009~2015年之間4587筆有關memory management(mm)的patches, Linux版本由v2.6.32.1 ~ v4.0-rc4. Source: An Evolutionary Study of Linux Memory Management for Fun and Profit Memory Bugs 5種bugs存在mm: memory error, checking, concurrency, logic and programming. 透過heat map可清楚看到主要bug發生地方 主要的bug fix在: Memory Allocation, Garbage Collection (GC), Virtual Memory Management. 大部份memory leak並不是因為忘了free, 而是錯誤的page fault handling和 free page的計算. MM較大的問題是很難去track正確的狀態. Memory optimization 定義3種optimization patches data structure: 避免nested data structure. Scalability的實現, scalability問題是因為locking for atomic access to shared data structures....

Linux Graphic Stack相關的名詞

Linux graphic 架構還滿複雜的, 在看時需要大略了解几個名詞及之間的關係. X Window System: 目前來到第11版本所以叫X11, 是以X window System Core protocol為基礎的window system. wayland: 由於X11太過複雜且在embbeded system中的效能不佳, 用來取代X window System Core protocol. weston (wayland compositor): 以wayland protocol來實做的compositor做為參考的範例, 實用上會用Westeros, Clutter…等. KMS/UMS: Kernel mode-setting 及User mode-setting. OpenGL: 由Khronos Group制定的跨平台graphic API. GLX: 是一個extension, 做為OpenGL與X window system之間的橋樑. 就像embedded system的EGL, MacOS的AGL. DRM(Direct Rendering Manager): 為了防止世界被破壞, 保護世界的和平. 防止同時使用graphic buffer. DRI(Direct Rendering Infrastructure): Mesa及DRM之間的橋樑. Ref: Introduction to the Direct Rendering Infrastructure CRTC (CRT Controller): Crtc is in charge of reading the framebuffer memory and routes the data to an encoder....

Vi用慣了, 那在shell也可以vi-style嗎? 答案是可以的! 這個方法可使用在常用的shell, 例如bash, ksh, zsh, mksh. btw, mksh 是Android使用的shell, 但Ubuntu預設的dash 是不支援的. 在shell中執行set -o vi 後按’i’進入insert mode, ‘ESC’為normal mode. 回到原本的模式則是set -o emacs 如下圖: Reference: Using vi-mode in your shell
