Pure segmentation is not very popular and not being used in many of the operating systems.

The memory management in the operating system is an essential functionality, which allows the allocation of memory to the processes for execution and deallocates the memory when the process is no longer needed. In this article, we will discuss two memory management schemes paging and segmentation. We will discuss some more differences between Paging and Segmentation with the help of comparison chart shown below. A segment is of variable size. Fragmentation Paging may lead to internal fragmentation.

Difference Between Internal and External fragmentation

Memory Management is the process of controlling and coordinating computer memory, assigning portions known as blocks to various running programs to optimize the overall performance of the system. It is the most important function of an operating system that manages primary memory. It helps processes to move back and forward between the main memory and execution disk. It helps OS to keep track of every memory location, irrespective of whether it is allocated to some process or it remains free. In this, operating system tutorial you will learn: What is Memory Management?

There are two types of fragmentation in OS which are given as: Internal fragmentation, and External fragmentation. Whenever a method request for the memory, the mounted sized block is allotted to the method. The above diagram clearly shows the internal fragmentation because the difference between memory allocated and required space or memory is called Internal fragmentation. In above diagram, we can see that, there is enough space 55 KB to run a process required 50 KB but the memory fragment is not contiguous. Here, we use compaction, paging or segmentation to use the free space to run a process. Attention reader! Writing code in comment?

Difference between Internal Fragmentation and External Fragmentation

As processes are loaded and removed from memory, the free memory space is broken into little pieces. It happens after sometimes that processes cannot be allocated to memory blocks considering their small size and memory blocks remains unused. This problem is known as Fragmentation. Memory block assigned to process is bigger. Some portion of memory is left unused, as it cannot be used by another process. The internal fragmentation can be reduced by effectively assigning the smallest partition but large enough for the process. Total memory space is enough to satisfy a request or to reside a process in it, but it is not contiguous, so it cannot be used.

 - Включите на секунду. Лампы, замигав, зажглись. Беккер поставил коробку на пол и подошел к столу. Наклонился и осмотрел пальцы левой руки. Лейтенант следил за его взглядом. - Ужасное уродство, правда.

Беккер попробовал выбраться и свернуть на улицу Матеуса-Гаго, но понял, что находится в плену людского потока. Идти приходилось плечо к плечу, носок в пятку. У испанцев всегда было иное представление о плотности, чем у остального мира. Беккер оказался зажат между двумя полными женщинами с закрытыми глазами, предоставившими толпе нести их в собор. Они беззвучно молились, перебирая пальцами четки.

 А что, если мистер Танкадо перестанет быть фактором, который следует принимать во внимание. Нуматака чуть не расхохотался, но в голосе звонившего слышалась подозрительная решимость. - Если Танкадо перестанет быть фактором? - вслух размышлял Нуматака.  - Тогда мы с вами придем к соглашению. - Буду держать вас в курсе, - произнес голос, и вслед за этим в трубке раздались короткие гудки.

Прекрасное место для смерти, - подумал Халохот.  - Надеюсь, удача не оставит .

    In computer storage , fragmentation is a phenomenon in which storage space is used inefficiently, reducing capacity or performance and often both.
