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.February 10, 2016 at 9:15 am #191150
It is the total memory (physical and virtual) allocated to the computerFebruary 10, 2016 at 11:14 am #379977
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! :)February 10, 2016 at 12:47 pm #191151
Use :google: (other search engines exist) to read up on virtual memory and page files – it is using drive space to simulate extra memoryFebruary 18, 2016 at 12:36 pm #379980
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. :)February 19, 2016 at 12:57 pm #191156
(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.

Sorry if I bothered you. I didn’t mean to. You are REALLY helpful here. I apologize.
