Direct Access Technology Preview
Direct Access(DAX) is available as a Technology Preview on the ext4 and XFS file systems. It is a means for an application to directly map persistent memory into its address space. To use DAX, a system must have some form of persistent memory available, usually in the form of one or more Non-Volatile Dual Inline Memory Modules (NVDIMMs), and a file system that supports DAX must be created on the NVDIMM(s). Also, the file system must be mounted with the
daxmount option. Then, an
mmapof a file on the dax-mounted file system results in a direct mapping of storage into the application's address space.
