Adjust Large System Cache

Easy Way to Adjust LargeSystemCache

HKLMSystemCurrentControlSetControlSession ManagerMemory Management and change thevalue to either O or 1 to the adjustment the LargeSystemCache.
However, in Windows XP, all you have to do is:· Right-click My Computer.· Select Properties.· Click Advanced.· Choose Performance.· Click Advanced again.· Select either Programs or System Cache under Memory Usage.Programs = 0 for the registry tweak equivalentSystem Cache = 1 for the registry tweak equivalent


· On NT Server (in this case XP), the Large System Cache option is enabled, butdisabled on Workstation. The two different settings effect how the cache managerallocates free memory. If the Large Cache option is on, the manager marks all the freememory, which isn’t being used by the system and/or applications, as freely available fordisk caching.

· On the flip-side (with a small cache), the manager instead only sets aside 4MB ofmemory for disk caching in an attempt to accelerate the launch of applications. Or in amore technical approach, if enabled the system will favor system-cache working sets overprocess working sets (with a working set basically being the memory used by components ofa process).
