Is the restriction on redhat_transparent_hugepage never still in effect for RHEL6+?

    Hallo David,

    i found that the FAQ has been updated. And mentioned that THP are supported since RHEL6.4.

    GPFS has the following restrictions on RHEL support:

    - On RHEL6.x, GPFS does not support the Transparent Huge Page (THP) feature for kernels

    prior to RHEL 6.4 (kernel version 2.6.32-358.el6). On unsupported kernels, THP should be

    disabled at boot time by appending transparent_hugepage=never to the kernel boot options."

    We had no experiences yet for this. IBMer are there any tips on that now?

    Regards Renar
