VMWare ESXi Consistently in Top 10 by Percent Memory Used


My ESXi machines consistently show up in the top 10 by percent memory used. This appears to be tracking memory allocated to virtual machines, which I don't see as a problem, and so this seems to be a nuisance alarm to me.

My first instinct is to stop monitoring this memory of the ESXi machine - however, I don't see a way of doing this. Within Node Management, when selecting ESXi nodes the "List Resources" button is disabled. Also, I don't see a way to list resources when looking at the corresponding page for the node itself.

It seems like everybody who monitors ESXi would also see this issue, but I've had a tough time finding any support for this. Could someone point me in the right direction?

Apologies if this is a beginner question, and I appreciate the help ahead of time.

Hi thodge_1,

Are you sure this in Virtualization Manager? Or is this within Orion (VIM)?

I believe you're correct. Now that I'm looking at it, it looks like I was confused due to seeing the 'Virtualization' tab in Orion I assumed this was Virtualization Manager.

Thanks for the help, I'll take the post to the right category.
