Hey guys, I was looking around old posts for information about pageouts and how to use the RAM best in OS X. I found this interesting thread. Look particularly at AmbitiousLemon's two posts there. In it, he talks about how after a while of using OS X, your RAM gets filled up with little bits of cached information from applications you've run and then quit. The only way to prevent yourself from running out of RAM, then, is to leave the applications running if you're going to use them, or reboot. This doesn't seem to fit with the always-on thing Apple seems to expect us to do. But that post was from the days of OS X 10.1. Does anyone know if that sort of thing is a problem still? And if it is still a problem, is there any way to flush out the RAM caches without a reboot - to free up RAM for running applications? I just want to use my RAM to the fullest, without it getting bogged down remembering stuff it doesn't need to. Anyone know how?
