Many software applications can, in principle, trade main memory consumption for other resources. For instance, garbage collected language runtimes can trade collection overhead for heap size, and many programs can improve their performance by caching data that was precomputed, read from disk or received from the network. Unfortunately, OSs provide little useful information about physical memory availability, and so applications use main memory cautiously to avoid unnecessary paging when memory… Expand
