Virtual memory provides a necessary abstraction for writing architecture-independent portable programs. In virtual memory architecture, each program has a large, linear address space in which it places code and data. Processes may use more memory than physically available, freeing the programmer from the responsibility of physical memory management. The operating system creates the virtual memory illusion using secondary memory for backing storage when the system exhausts physical memory. In this paper, the concept of virtual memory is discussed .Various Page Replacement algorithms will be discussed and comparison will be done to find out which is the best algorithm.
