SNAKE: Spiced-up Numa-Aware KErnel
Added support for
weighted interleaved memory allocation policy on NUMA machines to the Linux Kernel, accessible via a new system
call, named "set_mempolicy_w".
Currently available on Kernel v4.17.2, a small patch for other versions is available though :)
--weights option (and required underlying inner workings) to the original
numactl, enabling programs to make use of the weighted interleaved memory allocation policy feature mentioned
