10.6: Completely Disable Virtual Memory in Snow Leopard
Authored by: beanzos on Jun 08, '11 08:10:22AM

Just did this on an iMac (3.06 core 2 duo with 8gb ram). Apps are launching faster right away and haven't noticed any problems at all.

I launched VMware Fusion running XP and 3 browsers open, photoshop and illustrator on the mac side with documents open(not huge ones though), and 3 safari windows including one with a flash movie. This is my typical load at work on this machine also. Illustrator opened a file a lot faster than normal and the windows browsers are a bit faster to load then normal. Activity monitor is still showing just over 4gb of ram free.
