SubjectRe: Linux & ECC memory
Date
From


This is an interesting conversation...

In the early 80s, ECC memory was important to computer systems.

Now, personal computers have enormous arrays with non-parity memory.

Is this information written down anyplace?
1) is there much to be gained by having parity memory (many systems
do not).
2) Are there ways to programmatically to turn the cache off (is L1
always on?)

Any performance number with/without cache?
