Which three metrics are checked to diagnose a memory bottleneck at the ESXi host level? (Choose three)

A.
MEMSZ

B.
MEMCTL

C.
SWAP

D.
ZIP

E.
MCILTGT

Explanation:
MEMSZ – Amount of physical memory allocated to a resource pool or virtual machine. MEMCTL – Displays the memory balloon statistics. All numbers are in megabytes. MCILTGT – Amount of physical memory the ESXi system attempts to reclaim from the resource pool or virtual machine by way of ballooning.
SWAP – When the VMkernel on the host is swapping memory to disk A, E – wrong, does not indicate shortage of memory
B – memory baloon is higher, when vmware needs to take away memory allready allocated to VM C – memory swap to disk is classical memory shortage D – ZIP indicates memory is compressed, which also show memory shortage
