10.6: Completely Disable Virtual Memory in Snow Leopard
Authored by: petersconsult on Dec 03, '12 08:22:39AM

Pre-Scriptum:
i *do* realize that i'm the only one here interested in following-up on this post...

But i must warn you that disabling Virtual Memory in Mountain Lion (10.8.x) comes with *huge* performance penalties...

Indeed, i finally updated to Mountain Lion this week and was appalled at the lags in nearly every task performed by the OS..
Then i remembered (when looking through the Cocktail tweaks) that i had disabled VM and, evidently, Mountain Lion had not turned it back on.
So i turned it back on, and the system was instantly (well, after a restart anyway...) snappier...

i Hope this helps...
Peter
