    Memory overcommit in vSphere

    puzzledtux Hot Shot


      Can anyone share links to datasheet/WP which has mention of the VMware vSphere memory overcommit feature. I would also be interested in knowing how this feature works? I have read the Resource Management Guide, any more information would be appreciated.



      VI3 had a ratio of 1:2 for memory allocation i.e upto 16gb memory can be allocated safely to virtual machines hosted on 8gb physical hardware. Is there a ratio of vSphere and any official docs supporting this?
