Did you know that you do not gain performance by having or not having a page file?

Did you know that sizing of the page file(s) has nothing  to do with the amount of physical memory on the computer?

Did you know the more RAM you have the smaller page file you need?

Did you know that the page file(s) never contain data that can be found elsewhere on the disk?

Did you know that the x64 virtual address space is really 17 *billion* gigabytes in size, but limited to 16 terabytes for now?

Did you know that a high number of hard page faults does not directly mean low on memory?

Did you know that so-called “memory optimizer” third-party applications make memory optimization worse?

Did you know that if you minimized all of your running applications and let the computer run idle that all of your running applications would be paged out to the page file eventually?

Thanks for reading & let’s continue to be good network citizens!
