swap space
Jump to user comments
operating system An area of disk (e.g. a swap file) used
to store the state of a process that has been swapped out.
Under a virtual memory system, it is the amount of swap
space rather than the amount of physical memory which
determines the maximum size of a single process and the
maximum total size of all active processes.
