Data Type




Default Value

Hardware page size


This parameter specifies the stride by which memory is allocated among the nodes. The allocation begins by placing MAXLMD bytes on the first node, followed by MAXLMD bytes on the second node. This process continues until all the requested memory has been placed. If not all the memory has been placed at the end of the last node, the process is repeated starting over at the first node.

By default, if the process requesting memory placement is not the parent, all the memory is placed on the node on which that process is running.

To place all the requested memory on the parent node, specify MAXLMD=0.
