Dictionary of Debugging: Virtual Memory

Virtual Memory

A computational process view of its memory. Memory content is combined from the process host memory (may not be physical) and from a storage memory. Virtual memory usually has linear ordered addresses in the range [0, N] where some regions may be inaccessible:

Synonyms: virtual space

Antonyms:

Also: memory space, memory dump, memory region, user dump, kernel dump, complete dump, kernel spacephysical memory, user space, generalized kernel space.
