Dear All,

Can anyone clear me doubt..

1. Is Virtual memory = swap slices+swap files or it consists of physical memory too?

2. Is swapfs = virtual memory?

3. How to find out the virtual memory configured in the system from swap -l & swap -s output

Thanks in advance

Virtual memory ---> It is combination of physical memory and swap and it wil provide virtual adress to virtual memory

Swap ---> It is a slice or file which is used to provide addtional memory to the physical memory while physical memory shortfall occurs.
