physical memory usage.

  1. Hi.
    I have a windows xp with 250Mb Ram.
    I noticed that while there are 100Mb in Ram available, still application like Emule or Oracle use a lot of paging (something like 80Mb in Ram and 160Mb in virtual memory).
    Is there a way to use more Ram and less Virtual memory?
    And second -
    Is there a way to make sure a specific application will use only the ram (and by thus will flush other applications that are using the ram)?
    By the way I've already tried the "set priority-Real time" option in the task manager.

    Regards,
    Tamir.

    The only way to improve things, is by buying more RAM of the identical type you have now.
    In your case, a total of 1GB rather than 512MB should vastly improve performance.

    If buying ram isn't an option, can always increase the virtual ram. Right click My computer, Properties, then Advanced , Advanced again, and increase the ram by using MB/GB. Hope that helps
