That means if a higher priority process arrives and wants service, the memory manager can swap out the lower priority process to the secondary memory so that it higher priority process can be loaded to main memory for execution. As soon as higher priority process finishes, the lower priority process will be swapped back to main memory and execution will be continued.
Sometimes swapping is also called roll out, roll in. Address binding rules over the memory space to be allocated to process. Because process that has been swapped out need to be swapped in on same memory location from where it let off. And address binding implements it.
Swapping requires a backing store. And this backing store is as fast as disk. This backing store should be large enough to maintain copies of all memory images for all users. Swapping also means copying some data from one memory to another.

The former is more widely known than the latter, due to cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin, which are open to the public to invest on. I will focus on the lesser-known private blockchains and their real-world applications. Alice wants to start an office initiative to swap fiction books within Capgemini globally.
She sends an email around to her colleagues. Everyone partaking wants to always know who has a specific book. She thinks it is a good idea that everyone has a copy of the file because if only one had it, there would be a risk of losing all the data if they were to lose or delete the file.
She explains that whenever someone lends a book, the giver and the receiver need to sign the transaction in the Excel file. This data needs to be broadcasted around the group e.
Also, at the end of each day, everyone should share their file to see that there is a consensus on all the entries. Therefore, Alice explains that she found out about Digital Signatures and that they would be a good way of solving this problem. Every user that uses DS has a Public key and a Secret key that are intrinsically related — the public one is generated based on the secret one. On one hand, the Sign function takes the content of the Entry and the Secret key, and outputs a Signature that is entirely dependent on the message content.

This way, all of them have a method to ensure that a certain book transaction is safe to be added to their Spreadsheets because it has been unequivocally approved and signed by the interested users Bob and Alice, in this case. As you can see, the first few entries record the books that each one of them are putting into circulation and then show a record of Alice giving one of her books to Bob. They agree that they will only add entries to their spreadsheets, and therefore deem them valid, if:.
With this system, as long as everyone is being honest, they should have a pretty good methodology to exchange books. But Alice was worried that her book lending community might become really popular and she was concerned about its security and about people tampering with records. Okay, Alice is a bit paranoid, but it is a fair concern.

Basically, encrypting a message with a hashing function means substituting every single one of its letters essentially 1s and 0s for another set of characters. This means that every day that passes by, it becomes more and more complicated to tamper with old records because every block is linked to its predecessors intrinsically.
Highly unlikely. Blocks might be yielded faster and the members of the network nodes , might not be a single person but may be whole companies that trade within an ecosystem. Whatever the specifics might be, the skeleton remains the same: a decentralised ledger that provides trust against fraud and end-to-end visibility of transactions, due to everything being grouped in a single place.
