Why do you want to use the just because it is there and currently free? What is your thought process?

With 51 VMs powered off you are using more the 75% of your memory, and at the moment you can afford to lose a couple of your 18 hosts and still not have performance impacted when the powered on VMs failover thanks to HA.

Use much more of your memory and the performance of your VMs may begin to suffer due to memory contention - which would only get worse if you powered on more VMs or had a HA event.

So while you have plenty of CPU resource available, I personally wouldn't be pushing memory utilisation up too much further.

That doesn't answer my question.

What do you actually want to use the resource for?

What is making you think you can push the memory utilisation higher than the 75%+ that it already is?

No, I'm still not clear.

You asked a previous question about DRS.

Are the hosts already in a cluster? If so, is that cluster enabled for HA, for DRS, or for both HA and DRS?

You seem to have plenty of unused CPU resource (although that screenshot is a point in time rather than showing any trend over time), but your memory usage is already reasonably high across the 18 hosts.
