Memory Usage Alerts

I have an ESXi host with 528GB of memory and I have three VMs which were allocated with around 370GB of memory collectively. But I still get 99 percent memory usage alerts on this host. Is there any kind of reason for this behaviour?

Thanks for your reply. Unfortunately I donot have the screen shots at this moment. But I would like to is it possible that vsphere activities take 150 GB of memory from host? because the VMs only take 370GB and the ESXi host has 528 GB of memory.

Hi,

Restart vpxa service/agent on your ESXi server, if you have vCenter or restart management services, if it's an stand alone host.
