    ESXi 4.1 - Question regarding memory usage

    SilentGuy Enthusiast

      Hi all,

       

      I am currently in the process of migrating from ESX 3.5 to ESXi 4.1.0 and while doing so of upgrading my hardware (3x HP DL380 G7, 24GB RAM, 2 Intel X5660 CPUs each).

       

      The boxes are installed with ESXi 4.1.0 Build 384481 and hpq-esxi4.1uX-bundle-1.0a, hardware monitoring is done using HP SIM (V6, Windows).

       

      What bothers me, though, is that VSphere Client (4.1.0 Build 345043) is reporting steadlily increasing memory usage on its summary tab. The increase varies by system, ranging from 98MB to 1848MB in the last 3 days, still growing.

       

      Meanwhile the performance tab reports that memory consumed exceeds memory granted.

       

      Has anybody seen this behaviour, too? Is this normal or am I facing a memory leak here?

       

      Many thanks in advance.

       

      Regards,
