HugePages_Total: uuu HugePages_Free: vvv HugePages_Rsvd: www HugePages_Surp: xxx Hugepagesize: yyy kB Hugetlb: zzz kB where: HugePages_Total is the size of the pool of huge pages. HugePages_Free is the number of huge pages in the pool that are not yet allocated. HugePages_Rsvd is short for "reserved," and is the number of huge pages for which a commitment to allocate from the pool has been made, but no allocation has yet been made. Reserved huge pages guarantee that an application will be able to allocate a huge page from the pool of huge pages at fault time. HugePages_Surp is short for "surplus," and is the number of huge pages in the pool above the value in /proc/sys/vm/nr_hugepages. The maximum number of surplus huge pages is controlled by /proc/sys/vm/nr_overcommit_hugepages. Hugepagesize is the default hugepage size (in Kb). Hugetlb is the total amount of memory (in kB), consumed by huge pages of all sizes. If huge pages of different sizes are in use, this number will exceed HugePages_Total * Hugepagesize.
