Subjectmm: dirty page problem
I wrote a test program. It  mmap  a file and do some write, so some
pages become dirty.
and then I do "cat /proc/meminfo", so I get dirty pages that I have
written. this happened in my home
computer with debian, self compiled kernel 2.6.18-5 installed.

but in my company, on the servers (suse kernel, after the
test program have written the data, there was no change in
dirty pages column of "cat /proc/meminfo" 's output. after I killed
the test program, the dirty pages changed immediately.

I dont know why such different behavior, can you help me?

becauce we want a program mmap some files, and after the files'
contents were changed, the OS can write out these dirty
data back to disk periodly.

Best regards!
