In virtual operating systems, data is swapped to a page file when applications request more allocations than will fit in physical memory. The unit of memory that is swapped is a page, usually 4K in size. An application is said to have good locality if related data are stored near each other in memory, and thus likely to be on the same page and hence swapped together. If an application has many small bits of data scattered randomly throughout the address space, then many more pages will need to be swapped in and performance will suffer. You can use SmartHeap memory pools to improve locality.
The degree to which computations done by a processor depend only on data held in memory that is close to that processor. Also, the degree to which computations done on part of a data structure depend only on neighboring values. Locality can be measured by the ratio of local to nonlocal data accesses, or by the distribution of distances of, or times taken by, nonlocal accesses.
