A Windows virtual machine is experiencing poor application performance. The suspected issue is a lack of available memory. Windows Task Manager reports that 30 percent of the memory in the virtual machine is not being used.
What does this indicate and what could be checked next?
The application problems are definitely due to a non-memory-related problem. CPU affinity settings should be checked for this virtual machine.
The application problems are definitely due to a non-memory-related problem. CPU utilization should be checked next, using Windows Task Manager.
The virtual machine has memory available, but it might not have physical memory available.
VMkernel swap activity on the ESXi host should be checked next.
Windows Task Manager is not reading actual memory usage in the virtual machine. Windows System Monitor should be used to get a precise reading on memory usage.
