Swap file Usage?

I see, thanks.

 

But, deleting the gauges and labels I had set for the swap space percentage, used swap space and free swap space, and replacing them with with the virtual memory percentage, used virtual memory and free virtual memory gives me the exact same readings.

 

So, it is basically just re-naming it?

Yes, it is, but it's not all that simple :) There used to be virtual memory reading on the Motherboard / Memory page which we've removed, and then renamed swap space to virtual memory there. So the "new" virtual memory is not the old virtual memory, but equals to the old swap space. I admit, this change is a bit confusing, but we've had to do this because the old method didn't provide correct values.

OK, now I am confused.

 

If I understand; the current virtual memory is equal to the physical RAM plus the Swap file?

Yes. Previously, swap space incorrectly included the physical memory, and we've added up physical memory and swap space to form virtual memory, which again was incorrect. We had to remove virtual memory and rename swap space to virtual memory to make it right.
