#6923 closed enhancement (fixed)

Introduce a upper bound restriction, based on percentage of free space

Currently, VirtualMemory will not consider the amount of available free space after creating it's default sized swap file. For instance, on a 10 GiB partition with 4 GiB of memory, the swap file will be 7.99 GiB, often leaving less than 500 MiB.

Perhaps VirtualMemory could do some calculations to make sure that upon creating the swapfile, a minimum of 10-20% free space remains available.

To be clear, this is only for first creating the swap file (or anytime the user manually adjusts it).

This has annoyed me before, so I'll take ownership.

This has pretty much been fixed by Alexander in hrev44611 and the other recent changes to the VM.
