Memory configuration for VMWare ESXi VM
On our POC installation I found that there is a vswp file in VM folder on data storage - the size is equals of whole memory 50GB RAM - Size 50GB, 100GB RAM - Size 100GB and so on
According VMWare doc: The swap file size is always Allocated memory - reserved memory.
That swap I used for Overcommitment and VM ESXi overhead, so 4 lightly memory loaded VM 2GB each can use 4GB of host instead of 8GB.
So because TS use RAM as a storage and memory is being used intensely we don't need this.
Can we disable that feature using "Reserve all guest memory (All locked)" checkbox ?
What is default guest VM memory and CPU settings. Do you have any recommendations?
