We are doing a project in Linux and I need some help about Linux memory management: How it is done? Also, how is context switching is calculated for single process?

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

The Linux OS manages memory in different ways from Windows. Memory swap can help Linux run processes faster, not bog them down, for example. Sander van Vugt has written about Linux memory usage and how to optimize it for SearchDataCenter. You can get reports from the top program to get a sense of how Linux is allocating and using memory.
