How to permanently turn off THP (transparent hugepage)
I created a droplet with centos 7. In order to let MMS (mms.mongodb.com) manage my mongodb without warning about THP, I did following:
edit /etc/default/grub to add
systemctl stop tuned
systemctl disable tuned
after reboot I check it with
cat /sys/kernel/mm/transparent_hugepage/enabled. Still get [always]. Seems some other services enable it.
How can I permanently disable THP? I also want to disable THP defrag
I don’t want to do it in
rc.local as it runs after other services including mongod which will be installed later by MMS.
I don’t want to say goodbye to DO and return to AWS
