System and compressed memory

Recommended Posts

This is a feature in win 10, apparently to prevent swapping to disk. The problem is, it seems to be very aggressive in doing that. On a system with 16gb of RAM, and running x-plane, the process used 7-8, and "system and compressed" 2-3gb. It looks to me that the OS was always compressing/decompressing pages in RAM, although there was enough free available, task manager reported 65 % usage. The "system and compressed" also used 20-30 CPU . long story short, disabling the superfetch service stopped this behavior..


Probably some of you ran into this, just sharing my observation.
