Thread: Is 5GB of virtual memory normal?
09-12-2005, 02:24 AM #1tackywaterGuestIs 5GB of virtual memory normal?
I have a PowerBook G4 1.33 Ghz with 768MB of RAM. Is it normal for mac os x to be using 5GB of VM with only 5 relativly small programs open?
page ins/outs is 97167/3000.
Thanks in advance

Ok I just restarted my computer and it is still up at 4.5 Gigs.. so i've come to the conclusion that I'm an idiot the virtual memory in the activity monitor refers to the amount that os x has made available... I thought that is how much was actually being used. so I have nothing to worry about and you can ignore this post. Thanks
