What is the path to a Virtual Memory file created in python?

1 New Member
I'm trying to create a virtual XML file, copy some content to it, then access throw parsing, it may be simple, but every path that I'm trying to use ( like 'mem://mem_test.xml' or '{}'.format(mem _file) ) are not working... What path should I use to access a file in the Virtual Memory?
Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1.     import fs
  2.     import xml.etree.ElementTree as Et
  4.     mem_fs = fs.open_fs('mem://')
  5.     os_fs = fs.open_fs(".")
  6.     mem_file = mem_fs.open('mem_test.xml', 'rw')
  7.     fs.copy.copy_file(os_fs, 'test.xml', mem_fs, 'mem_test.xml')
  8.     tree = Et.parse('[string with path to mem_test]')
  9.     root = tree.getroot()

In Python, the path to the Virtual Memory file depends on the operating system being used.

On Windows, the Virtual Memory file is typically located at C:\pagefile.sys .

On Linux, the Virtual Memory file is typically located at /swapfile.

In general, you can use the os module in Python to obtain information about the Virtual Memory file. For example, to obtain the path to the Virtual Memory file on Linux, you can use the following code:
import os
path = os.path.realpat h('/proc/swaps')

This will return the absolute path to the swaps file, which contains information about the swap space being used on the system.

Hello all, for my image processing application I need a large amount of virtual memory.

How can I limit the use of the PC's virtual memory? I'm running a process that basically takes a txt file and loads it to a datatable. The problem is that the file is over 400,000 lines long (77 MB) and after a while I get the Windows message saying that the virtual memory's getting really low. Plus the machine gets really sluggish (with multi-threading). Is it possible to use the virtual memory until it reaches a certain limit and then use...

I have a python code which is running on a huge data set. After starting the program the computer becomes unstable and gets very diffucult to even open konsole to kill that process.

I have a gig of RAM. Every help is appreciated.

Hello I have a strange situation with my ASP.Net applications running on Windows 2003 Server x64. As soon as they get instantiated (a visitor hits a page). the virtual memory they allocate goes to something around 5GB! I can't explain the reason. I even made a very simple page (no Web.config, no global.asax, just text output) and it behaves the same. The applications uses 3 tier architecture with all (IIS, component, etc) running at 64...

I have a situation where I need to be able to allocate chunks on unmapped virtual memory. Because the memory I'm allocating isn't mapped, I can't use a normal memory allocator, as most of them want to store their metadata about the free list in the unused holes in the heap. Instead, I need a memory allocator that stores its metadata out-of-line (perversely enough, a simple malloc() heap would be fine for that). Does anyone know of...
