With the release of v4.5, the Linux kernel has gained support for a wide range of persistent memory storage applications. From the basics of treating a persistent memory range like a disk, to the more advanced configurations of enabling direct byte-addressable access to applications (DAX) or 3rd-party device access (DMA/RDMA), there is a range of configuration options to consider. This talk combines an overview of the Linux kernel persistent memory access capabilities with an introduction to IXPDIMM, management tooling and libraries for administering the persistent memory capabilities of a platform.
