I'm currently seeing my PC getting bogged down by Firefox 11.0 alone with only one hundred tabs open.
Resulting in a memory use of over 530M , VM size of over 800M and an insane amount of page faults (easily reaching 100 million over the course of the day). The PF delta during normal operation easily reaches 7k with peaks to 15k sometimes reaching over 20k.
This leads to a (real) deterioration to response time when switching, opening and closing tabs, opening menus, typing, ...
My question is: Am I right in assuming that plugging in more RAM (either adding 2x1GB or replacing the existing RAM with 2x2GB or 4x1GB) will solve this problem?
- Windows XP Home Edition SP3 (32 bit)
- Intel Core Duo 2,4 GHz
- 2x512MB RAM 800MHz DDR2 (dual channel)
- 4MB unified cache
- 320GB HDD
- Intel G33 (X3100) onboard graphics (no graphics card but PCI express x16 slot is available)
