  • Comitted RAM

    Hello,

    I am not sure that this is happening to me because I am a non-native English speaker, but I am failing to understand what "committed memory" is.

    In my case, the Virtual machine has 2 GB RAM allocated but the committed memory is 4.5 GB . Is that what the machine is asking for, 4.5 GB RAM ?

    I attach an image.

    Thanks in advance.

    It is the total memory (physical and virtual) allocated to the computer

      Thanks Ossian.

      ​Yet, the host has a total of 8 GB RAM, and I allocated only 2 GB for this virtual machine. I still don't understand it.

      Thanks once more!

        Use (other search engines exist) to read up on virtual memory and page files - it is using drive space to simulate extra memory

          I don't mean to be rude here Ossian but if one is always asked to use a search engine, what is the point of an IT forum?.

          Well, I guess it is for asking advanced question, which otherwise are difficult to be solved. I apologize, if it is so.

            (sigh)... I gave you the one line explanation that virtual memory is making use of disk drive space to pretend the computer has more memory than it actually has, but there is a lot more to it, hence the suggestion to refer to other sources. I am not sure what more you want
