SubjectVMM - freeing up swap space
Date
Hello,

Running an application allocating huge amounts of memory would push some
data from RAM to swap area. After the application terminates, swap area is
usually still occupied.

Is there any way to clean up the swap area by pushing the data back to RAM?

Thanks in advance
Giga
