JumboMem gives unmodified binaries transparent access to memory spread across multiple computers. The goal is to improve the performance of memory-hungry applications by replacing accesses to a slow paging device (a disk) with accesses to fast RAM located across a high-speed network. Unlike other memory servers, JumboMem does not need administrator privileges either to install or run.

Release Notes: The code was modified to fake the /proc/meminfo file to better maintain the illusion of a single node with a huge amount of memory. The values returned by fread(), fwrite(), fread_unlocked(), and fwrite_unlocked() were corrected to be in terms of elements, not bytes.
Release Notes: Multi-threaded applications now work with JumboMem. The code builds with the latest versions of SCons and works with the latest version of Open MPI.
