Have a Linux VM that is using 8.4 GB when I check disk space using sudo du -h --max-depth=1
On the ESXI host, the storage the VM is using is marked as using 166 GB.....I dont understand why the huge difference.
What can I Do about this?
Two screen shots are attacheed, one with the space from the Linux VM and one showing the hosts usage
And, let me guess, 16 GB of RAM assigned? You probably have a thick provisioned disk for this VM (150 GB), which, when adding the swap file for the memory (16 GB) gives you your 166 GB.
