Summary tabs are showing average usage for the last 5 minutes, did you have any spikes of consumed memory by any chance? Also could you please tell me what Memory usage does vSphere Client show you for the same host?

vSphere Client shows similar values except the values for Resources, which I don't have in vSphere Client.
Initially I've expected, that host memory usage would be roughly the sum of VM memory usage plus hypervisor memory usage. But following the counter description in Veeam Monitor, VM memory usage is based on active memory, while host memory usage is based on consumed memory. Thus theses values are not directly related, right? So it seems I've misinterpreted the values.
I don't know, how the values for Resources are calculated. The counter description doesn't target Resources at all.
Do you have a white-paper, that explains these values in detail?
