Explanation of Page Faults

Last Modified: 2013-11-10
Can somebody who understands the concept please provide me with an explanation of what a Page Fault is?

I have specifically been told that an application with a high number of page faults is not a bad thing, but what does having a high level actually mean?

Please, no links if you can avoid it. I'd rather even just a few sentences to describe this rather than pages of articles to read.
