EXCEEDING MEMORY SPACE
As with any Linux* system, the operating system on the coprocessor will sometimes allow you to allocate more memory space than is physically available. On many systems this is taken care of by swapping some pages of memory out to disk. On those systems, if the amount of physical memory plus the amount of swap space is exceeded, the operating system will begin killing off jobs.
The situation on the Intel Xeon Phi coprocessor is complicated by the lack of directly attached disks. So:
One of the reasons I setup an NFS share is so that I can have an inexpensive shared storage place for my VMs on the ESX Server 4.0. I can also use the features on vCenter like VMotion and Fault Tolerance using the shared storage. Creating the NFS is only available for the Windows 2003 R2 SP2. For ESX Server’s vCenter, you will also need to install the 32-bit version of the OS. I have a desktop client which I have installed the OS and also where I will store the VMs at. I also have vCenter & vSphere Client installed on the system as well.
