While running xmrig, you can caught the following log.

[2021-03-15 15:14:59.732]  randomx  failed to allocate RandomX dataset using 1GB pages

The solution is to edit grub file located at /etc/default/grub with the following config:

GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="hugepagesz=1G hugepages=3"

Then, update grub.cfg with this command and do reboot.

grub2-mkconfig -o /boot/grub2/grub.cfg

Finally, run your xmrig with sudo and enjoy!
