       migratepages - Migrate the physical location a processes pages


       migratepages pid from-nodes to-nodes


       migratepages  moves  the physical location of a processes pages without any changes of the
       virtual address space of the process. Moving the pages allows one to change the  distances
       of  a  process  to its memory. Performance may be optimized by moving a processes pages to
       the node where it is executing.

       If multiple nodes are specified for from-nodes or to-nodes then  an  attempt  is  made  to
       preserve the relative location of each page in each nodeset.

       For example if we move from nodes 2-5 to 7,9,12-13 then the preferred mode of operation is
       to move pages from 2->7, 3->9, 4->12 and 5->13. However, this is only posssible if  enough
       memory is available.

       Valid node specifiers

              all                 All nodes
              number              Node number
              number1{,number2}   Node number1 and Node number2
              number1-number2     Nodes from number1 to number2
              ! nodes             Invert selection of the following specification.


       Requires  a  NUMA  policy  aware  kernel with support for page migration (linux 2.6.16 and

       migratepages will only move pages that are not shared with other processes if called by  a
       user without administrative priviledges (but with the right to modify the process).

       migratepages  will  move  all  pages  if  invoked from root (or a user with administrative
