A company runs several instances of an application that requires large amounts of memory.
Which three metrics are checked to diagnose a memory bottleneck at the ESXi host level? (Choose three)
THIS IS A HIGHLY DEBATED QUESTION – SOOoooo If you think it is wrong please research thoroughly before requesting an update… an official response from VMware would be nice. 😀
3 metrics to diagnose a memory bottleneck at the ESXi host level: MEMSZ, MEMCTL, SWAP.
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
Revised; Answer is MEMSZ,MEMCTL,SWAP. Checked with VMWARE on this. Renegade_ZA
