ALL04 Virtual memory problems under OS/2 and eComStation

Thursday 12:00 Heinrich Heine
Friday 12:00 Jan Wellem

While OS/2 once was designed to make most out of the memory available in earlier days, it was never designed for the amount of physical memory available in systems of today. Current applications like Mozilla and, which consume lots of memory, put a challenge to the operating system, but not because of lack of physical RAM, but because of lack of 32 bits virtual address space.  This session explains the technical details behind such problems, how to recognize them in daily work, and how to deal with them.
