    I found hugetlb support in linux not very practical/usable on NUMA machines,
    boot-time parameters or /proc/sys/vm/nr_hugepages.

    With this single integer parameter, you cannot allocate 1000 4MB pages on one
    specific node, letting small pages on another node.

    I'm not an astrophysician, nor a DB admin, I'm only trying to partition a dual
    node machine between one (numa aware) memory intensive job and all others
    (system, network, shells).
    At least I can reboot it if needed, but I feel Andy pain.

    There is a /proc/buddyinfo file, maybe we need a /proc/sys/vm/node_hugepages
    with a list of integers (one per node) ?
