Hey hello everyone, I'm not sure it's the right place to post this question. But I cannot find somewhere better. My processor is Intel Xeon 5620, Since I get from the Intel's developer manual that it supports page sizes from 4K-1G. In my case, I wanted to use investigate the impact of the page sizes to my program's performance. But I cannot find some way to do it. Can anyone help me by telling me how to set the page sizes on this processor? Do I need do BIOS setup, or some OS configuration, or can just using some inline assembly in the code to set the page size? Thank you!
