Segmented Paging...

I have read about paging and segmentation and also the paged segmentation. But I donot get what Segmented Paging is. Is that possible and if so, how does that happen? Can anyone give me some basics on it.

Thanks

Hi srinivas_vemla,
I think you mean fragemented paging, this occurs when a page file is dynamic, i.e. its maximum and minimum sizes are diffrerent this allows it to shrink and grow, which can cause fragementation, for this reason its considered good practice to set the maximum and minimum sizes of a page file to the same figure.

srinivas_vemla,
To adjust the Windows XP Page File

1. You must be logged in as either the Administrator or a user with administrative privelleges. If you alter the Page File and after a reboot find the settings have not changed. boot the PC into safe mode and log on as "Administrator"

2. Either Right Click My Computer and select Properties  and select the "Advanced" Tab. Under the Performance heading click settings , Select the "Advanced" Tab and click "Change"  OR Press Start > Control Panel > Performance and Maintenance > System > Advances > Settings >Change

3. You can now enter you new page file requirements. Ensure you Press "Set"

4. ***Points to consider***

    a. Your page file should be AT LEAST twice the size of your physical RAM
    b. It is considered good practice to set the Maximum and Minimum Sizes the same
        (This prevents fragmentation of the page file)
    c. If you have more than one Hard Drive place the Page File on the fastest drive.
    d. If possible put the Page file on a drive that is on a separate IDE controller.
    e. If possible mount the page file on a different drive to the operating system, or a different partition or
        volume.

5. If It still dosnt work try looking at this article http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=KB;en-us;q259151

WARNING

Not leaving a part of page file on your boot volume means your system cannot create a crash dump file (memory.dmp) for more info see

Have you ever thought of letting Windows have it (System Managed Size) ?
