Question description

Required Actions: Discover how to manage/allocate virtual memory

Q1. The size of virtual memory can sometimes be adjusted by a computer user to improve system performance. Using an operating system of your choice, discover if you can change the size of virtual memory, how to do so, and the minimum and maximum recommended sizes of virtual memory. Write a brief summary including what virtual memory is and how it is utilized by your operating system, what operating system was utilized for this hand-on exercise; providing a screen capture of the virtual memory settings, and the steps required to retrieve the desired information. (Important! Do not change the size of your virtual memory settings unless you know what you are doing. This exercise is for research purposes only.)

OR

Prepare a presentation where you discuss the different dynamic storage allocation algorithms, First-fit, Best-fit, and Worst-fit. Include the pros and cons of each algorithm? Conclude with which algorithm is the best? Support your argument with references and utilize graphics/illustrations if they add value to your presentation discussion.
