Demand paging, Operating System

Demand paging

With demand paging, a page is called into memory only when a location on that page is actually indexed during run time. With pre-paging, pages other than the one given by a page fault are achieved in. The obtains of such pages is done based on common access frames, usually for secondary storage devices.
