|Data type||Range||Default value|
|REG_DWORD||0 | 1-128 (megabytes)||0|
Establishes the maximum space in the nonpaged pool that can be allocated by any process. Any attempt by a process to allocate more space in the nonpaged pool will fail.
|0||The system calculates an optimal value for this entry based on the amount of physical memory on the computer, and adjusts this value if the amount of memory changes. This value is optimal for most systems.|
|1–128||Overrides the value calculated by the system and prevents the system from adjusting this value dynamically. This setting can degrade performance.|
Do not change the value of this entry. The system adjusts this value dynamically. Changing the value prevents the system from using its algorithms to calculate an optimal value for the system.
