Fixed-Partition Memory Management

Definition : A memory management technique where available space is divided into fixed length partitions.

The operating system will take up part of the memory. The remaining part of the memory in fixed-partition memory management will be divided into fixed partitions. Each partition will be given to one program. A quick problem is that programs use different amounts of memory. Fixed-partition memory will give a program either too much or too little.
