According to https://www.kernel.org/doc/Documentation/vm/hugetlbpage.txt looking into /proc/meminfo is the longer-standing API and thus is likely to work on more kernel versions. Also, if you look into /sys then you are going to see multiple possible values and it's not clear how to choose the right one. regards, tom lane -- Sent via pgsql-hackers mailing list (email@example.com) To make changes to your subscription: http://www.postgresql.org/mailpref/pgsql-hackers
