Mine is 1024 Min/Max
Disabled. I have 1 GB RAM and a dual-core CPU, so I use two compressed zram caches of 250 MB each as swap space.
(I've also made use of zram on my ancient Thinkpad. 192 MB PC100 RAM with 128 MB zram swap, and no hard disk swap space at all, can run Abiword, Opera, and several Thunar and Terminal windows at once with plenty of room to spare. )
BTW, if you're using Windows, apparently some form of compressed space in RAM is going to show up in Windows 8. Or so I've heard anyway.
So why don't I see a "Disabled" vote in the poll?
It's showing. Clear your browser cache.
Just cleared the cash and did a hard refresh CTRL + F5 and this is what I see:
Not showing for me. Except I just voted "Disabled" so it is - but that's my vote.
I have no need for a swap partition. I have 8GB of RAM.
ahh now it's showing....don't know why it took a while for it to show!
I hate Firefox it always shows me old content of sites despite me having set it to always refresh in the about:config // command: browser.cache.check_doc_frequency Value= 1
Ahh so I am right in what I said, it wasn't showing for me either and what I just saw is YOUR vote Hungry Man
Because Gullible Jones voted to "Other, please mention".
I have a 1.56GB shared swap partition.
SPP is correct. There is no technical problem with the poll. Since the Poll has the option selected to show who voted for what, just look for Gullible Jones name in the poll results. He posted Disabled, but, voted for "Other, please mention".
Ah ok, thanks for the clarifications. I was starting to doubt my cache settins in my browser LOL!
I don't know why on earth would he vote other then say he posted Disabled LOL
must be a mistake
Because zram is swap space, just not on the hard disk.
So far on my newer W7 machine I'm letting system manage size, and everything seems fine. But I've got 8GB RAM.
My XP box has 4GB RAM and for some reason I had page file set to 4605MB min/max.
I just switched it back to letting Windows manage.
I used to mess around with page file size when I was running XP with 1GB RAM.
I let the system manage the size.
What Bo said
I have no idea what a pagefile is.
Virtual memory - Page files size used as if was ram.
Mine is 1024 system managed.
You say virtual memory and page file is the same. But System Information says Total Virtual Memory is 2GB and Page File Space is 2.38GB What am I missing Dave?
Also System Information says Total Physical Memory is 1024 MB and Available Physical Memory is 339.56 MB But available Virtual Memory 1.96 GB.
If Virtual Memory is there to be used when Physical Memory is used up then why Virtual Memory is used slightly even when Physical Memory is left quite a bit?
Default System Managed, which is 16GB with 16GB of RAM. I have plenty of hard drive space, no reason to mess with the defaults. I could see dropping it to 1 or 2 GB if I was short on disk space or using an SSD, but I am not so no reason to.
@ Iron Man.To be honest I am not that techie,From what I see on my system under virtual memory it says paging file is in a area on the disk that windows uses as ram that's all I know.
Perhaps some one else can explain the technical part of it,because its confusing to me.
LOL okay thanks anyway.
I am not a pen and paper guy but give me handtools and I usually can fix it. Cars - motorcycles -electronics - Firearms etc.Jack of all trades master of none.
It depends where you're looking for pagefile size. Mine shows 6.3GB in the "Size" column of Windows explorer, but the file details say 5.99GB. Precise size number is 6,441,721,856 bytes. So don't be too hung up on the size of your pagefile. Different parts of Windows seems to use a different formula to shorten the real total byte size.
Separate names with a comma.
