Page fault handler will be paged out RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi All,

    I have a doubt. I know PageFault Handler handles the page fault error. Will PageFault thread be preempted?

    Also I wanted to know whether PageFault handler when it is Preempteed will be Paged out?

  • page faults happen on the thread where the fault occurs. the IRQL will raise to dispatch to handle the exception, but the wait for the page will be synchronous. no, the handler will not page out
