    Hi, I hope this will help:

    The virtual memory consist of physical memory and OS swap space. Virtual memory can be allocated by the SAP system.

    In the virtual memory exist shared memory and local memory.

    Your question was regarding extended memory. Extended memory (user context) exist in shared memory. Heap memory exist in local memory.
