Description    
The dynamic_pager daemon manages a pool of external swap files which the kernel uses to support demand paging. This pool is expanded with new swap files as load on the system increases. It is contracted when the swapping resources are no longer needed. The dynamic_pager daemon also provides a notifica-tion notification tion service for those applications which wish to receive notices when the external paging pool expands or contracts.
