vmware VI client and linux shows different memory usage

Hi Guys

I have a RHEL 5 cluster running on ESX 3.5. The active node in cluster which is DB1 showing me 12% memory utilization within VI client whereas if I check within the VM by using top it shows me a very different figure ( 30 % ). I don't understand why there is so big difference?

Can someone please explain this to me?

Secondly if someone knows the link to any pdf related to this please let me know.

Thanks
