I create a 300GB swap space (just use up the remaining space in disk, no
special reason). Is that a problem?

You could try to change the memory model to "Sparese Memory".

Kernel type --->
Memory model (Sparse Memory) --->

My system memory only has 1 node of continuous memory. Any reason for that?

The memory address space is not continuous in some cpus, so I suggest to change the memory model.

I guess that your system is continuous, so only 1 node is show.

I try the hibernation feature with my MIPS box which has 128MB RAM.

hibernation. The
process failed because of no memory. Then, I continue to cut the data

I want to make sure if it is an expected behavior or I am doing some
How large is your swapspace? Hibernation needs space on swap to store
the contents
of RAM (that cannot be loaded again from somewhere else).
