- PowerEdge R430
- Intel Xeon E5-2440 (dual)
- 32GB RAM
- Hyper-V 2012 R2
- DC - 8GB RAM
- APP - 19GB RAM
The VM's are not configured for dynamic memory.
The client was complaining about poor APP server performance. In looking at system resources (Host)I noticed that the available RAM was only 71MB. The available RAM used on the APP server was only 4GB.
I attempted to look for documentation indicating how much RAM should be allocated (best practice) to the host OS but only found hits on configuring RAM for VMs.
Before making any changes, I am trying to see if I can find more concrete information on this.
Please let me know if I am missing any information and I will be happy to edit my post.
