5-2 journal: memory management in practice | operating systems | Southern New Hampshire University

 Create a journal assignment in preparation for the memory management assessment elements of your final project.

Identify a graphical or command line utility that displays the allocation of virtual memory on your workstation. For example, memory_pressure provides information about the state of memory pages on OS X. The command or utility you choose must be part of the standard operating system’s distribution. Do not use third-party utilities. You are encouraged to select an operating system different from the one you used in previous lab exercises.

Execute the command and report on your findings in a journal assignment that provides insight into how the command you selected displays physical and virtual memory.
