Although it is possible to run QlikView with less memory, the use of a computer with at least 1 GB for 32- bit Windows and 4 GB for 64-bit Windows is recommended.
The amount of memory you need for QlikView depends on the amount of data you load, and on the data structure. Too little primary memory will drastically affect the performance of QlikView in a negative way.
If you notice that your computer accesses the hard disk every time you make a selection in QlikView, you either have too many programs running, or too little primary memory.
Make sure that your swap file (the virtual memory) is large enough. The swap file should in principle be as large as possible. However, if you have limited disk space, or a lot of primary memory, you may want a
smaller swap file or no swap file.
The system usually takes care of the swap file size dynamically. However, if you have too little free space on the hard disk, you may get problems with your swap file getting too small. In such a case, you can fix the
size of the swap file. This is done in the Virtual memory dialog, which is accessed from the task bar: choose Settings, Control Panel, System, Performance, Virtual Memory.
Defragment the hard disk before changing the swap file settings. It usually leads to a larger contiguous free
hard disk area and thus a larger possible swap file.
