Sep 7, 2007 ... Swapping is the process whereby a page of memory is copied to the preconfigured space on the hard disk, called swap space, to free up that page of memory. The combined sizes of the physical memory and the swap space is the amount of virtual memory available. Swapping is necessary for two ...

Nov 3, 2014 ... Pagefile is like a virtual memory in your Windows PC. Whenever Windows runs low on the physically installed memory (RAM), it creates a hidden file named “ pagefile.sys” and dumps all the least-used memory bits into that file. That way, Windows can clear up the physical RAM for any excess work.

Page Tables store the virtual-to-physical address mappings. ▫ Where are they located? ○. In memory! ▫ OK, then. How does the MMU access them? ○. The MMU has a special register called the page table base pointer. ○. This points to the physical memory address of the top of the page table for the currently-running  ...

If a certain section (or page) of virtual memory is stored in physical memory but hasn't been used in a while, then the OS can copy that memory to disk (such as a ... So if program Calc is located at memory location 0x42, and an instruction of Calc reads from memory location 0x1, then it will actually read from ...

This means Information can be retrieve and store by the computer at any order. RAM gives your computer a temporary place to process electronic data. This means that, RAM chips continue to store information only as long as computer has electrical power. In other words, when you shut off your computer, all the data stored ...

At the end of last lecture, we introduced the notion of paging: divide a large virtual address space into many small pages, which can be independently swapped into and out of frames in physical memory. To do so, we need to keep a data structure (the page table) for each process mapping page numbers to frame numbers.

The purpose of cache is to provide fast access to data stored in main memory, to support I/O operations performed by the processor. For example, this helps speed up I/O-bound applications. Similarly, virtual memory is a read/write buffer for disk storage. Virtual memory performs the additional function of supporting the  ...
