Locked memory is typically used by oracle database, ie ISM/DISM segments etc, not likely to be used on desktop, apps that use shared memory tend to try and pin it in memory to give max performance.
I wouldn't think a desktop would need this typically.

"Locked memory" is the same as "pinned memory": In other words, pages
that won't be paged to disk. Applications can request that pages be
"locked" into memory. The pager won't page locked pages to disk.

Regarding an "appropriate value for desktop usage": It depends on what
kinds of applications you're using. Most applications don't use
locked/pinned pages. I don't set this property on my desktop, but you
could set it to a small value. (0M?)

At the same time, I would like to ask exactly what is "locked" RAM?
How much is an apropriate value for desktop usage? 2GB?

add capped-memory
set locked=2GB
