This paper describes the use of remote memory for virtual memory swapping in a cluster computer. Our design uses a lightweight kernel-to-kernel communications channel for fast, efficient data transfer. Performance tests are made to compare our system to normal hard disk swapping. The tests show significantly improved performance when data access is random.
