  • Physical memory usage in a VM


    For any Virtual Machine(with 2GB RAM with 1 GB as reserved memory) running in a cluster of 8 ESX hosts I am noticing that the used physcial memory inside the VM (through windows task manager) is coming as 1.8GB however when I look for same at the summary tab in Virtual center console for the same VM I see used physical memory as 400MB.

    I can guess that this probably because the ESX host has just given 400MB of physical memory to that VM and rest of approx 1GB is being used from pagefile. But if this is true then why ESX is just assiging 400MB of physical memory to that machine even when I have given reservation of 1GB to that VM???

    Can anyone please let me know if there is anything wrong in configuration??

    Thanks in advance!
