Enumerate some pros and cons for increasing the page size.

Following are the pros and cons of increasing the page size:


  • reduces pagetable size
  • increases tlb coverage
  • increases swapping I/O throughput, as small disk transaction times are dominated by seek & rotational delays.


  • increases page fault latency, as swap response time is slower due to more data.
  • increases internal fragmentation of pages, as there is more 'wasted page' in the working set
