Q: OPtimal swap file settings with win3.11


Hi, 

I'm using mma 2.2.1 with windows3.11 and 16 mb ram.

Often, when doing large calculations, mma quits kernel due to lack of memory,
despite a large swapfile (48 mb) and giving 24 mb extra to the kernel.

It seems mma runs into other limitations than memory.
Indeed 1) the memory meter shows still lots of free memory
2) a smaller swap file works just as good

So what are the optimal settings for swap file size,
ExtraPages (math.ini) and PagesOverCommit ( system.ini) ??

Any comments welcom,

Mark
