Performance tabs metric confusion

Post by sammyvvv »

Hello chaps,

Can I get some confirmation on what exactly the performance dials for memory is showing. Whether it is actual memory being active allocated or consumed? I have noticed that are middle dial is slowly creeping up to red and just wanted to confirm exactly the metric it uses.

Hope this makes sense guys :D

Hi Sam,

For virtual machines we show memory usage which is calculated using this formula (percentage of configured virtual machine “physical” memory):

Code: Select all

active / virtual machine configured size 
And this is for hosts (percentage of available machine memory):

Code: Select all

consumed / machine memory size

For all other top level objects we use consumed memory counter.

Hope this helps!
