one of our VM's is running relatively slowly. it is the only VM running on the ESXi server. In the performance tab the active memory is very low (<1gb), however what is strange is the 'consumed' memory is higher than the granted memory.
I've been reading the manuals, but all I can get from these is ambiguous terminology, like 'consumed memory shows the amount of consumed memory' and 'granted memory shows the amount of granted memory' - which isn't very useful for me.
If I have 8Gb in the server in total and I set the memory to 8Gb on the VM - will this make the VM run slower as I haven't allowed for the overhead of the ESXi server?
Does anyone have any useful references or advice that would help me?
