I followed the suggestion to disable compressed memory, now I want to get it back.
I checked the code, it was
4 before disabling.
So, I tried:
sudo nvram boot-args="vm_compressor=4"
That was not effective.
Please, how to get the feature back?
You're confusing the boot argument
vm_compressor with the sysctl variable
vm.compressor_mode; they don't correspond in values. As I understand it, this is the mapping:
nvram boot-args="" => sysctl vm.compressor_mode=4 => memory compression enabled (normal) nvram boot-args="vm_compressor=1" => sysctl vm.compressor_mode=1 => memory compression disabled
To restore the default behavior, either:
sudo nvram -d boot-args
– then restart the Mac.
