A Linux system on which the Azul Zing Builds of OpenJDK (Zing) and Azul Zing System Tools (ZST) components are installed has a certain amount of physical memory (RAM). The Host System memory is used by all of the processes running on the machine. This includes memory used by the Linux kernel, Linux processes, and the Zing instances running Java applications. The operating system’s virtual memory system manages the RAM for use as System Linux memory. The ZST’s Zing Memory Module (ZMM) manages the RAM for use as System Zing Memory. The host system memory is used to satisfy requests made for memory when a process is launched and, as necessary, when the process is running.
