Host Memory Status Critical

Hello, I'm hoping someone can help me understand an alarm in vSphere. There is a "Host memory status" CRITICAL alarm. If I go to the Hardware Health tab and refresh, the warning is still showing on the slot with a reading of 96. Does this mean that the status of this memory slot is still critical? This is a warning about over utilization of the memory correct? Should I reset to green and see if the warning comes back? Any info is appreciated.

thanks

Ah yes, I checked the IDRAC and there is a problem with one of the DIMM's. "Correctable Memory Error Log Limit Reached". Forgive me I've been out of the VMware game for a while and forgot about Dell's IDRAC console. I will do some troubleshooting with the memory.

thanks for your time and info.
