I assume that the screenshot was taken on VM level (VM object selected)

Memory in Capacity remaining is memory Demand == Active memory (Amount of guest “physical” memory actively used).+ ESXi overheads

Memory Consumed is based on memory consumed metric == Amount of guest physical memory consumed by the virtual machine for guest memory. Consumed memory does not include  overhead memory. It includes shared memory and memory that might be reserved, but not actually used.

It's expected that memory consumed will be around 100% percent as VM marks all available memory as consumed by startup, demand is tend to under size memory usage on the VM as it takes into account only actively touched blocks.

Look for in-guest metricks thorugh epo or special metricks availible through vmware tools 10.0 with vcenter 6.0 u1 and vrops 6.3

Greetings!


Looking at your screenshot, Memory Consumed option is the one you should consider in this situation. Yes, VM needs more memory.

However, my vROps does not show two tabs for memory. vROps version 6.4 Build 4635874
