4. When you have enough RAM for your needs, virtual memory works beautifully.

7. Translate from English into Ukrainian.

  1. Virtual memory is a computersystem technique which gives an application program the impression that it has contiguous working memory (an address space), while in fact it may be physically fragmented and may even overflow on to disk storage.

  2. Systems that use this technique make programming of large applications easier and use real physical memory (e.g. RAM) more efficiently than those without virtual memory.

  3. Virtual memory differs significantly from memory virtualizationin that virtual memory allows resources to be virtualized as memory for a specific system, as opposed to a large pool of memory being virtualized as smaller pools for many different systems.

  4. Note that "virtual memory" is more than just "using disk space to extend physical memory size" - that is merely the extension of the memory hierarchyto includehard disk drives.

  5. Extending memory to disk is a normal consequence of using virtual memory techniques, but could be done by other means such as overlaysor swapping programs and their data completely out to disk while they are inactive.

  6. The definition of "virtual memory" is based on redefining the address space with a contiguous virtual memory addresses to "trick" programs into thinking they are using large blocks of contiguous addresses.
