Oversized VMs

This report allows you to identify VMs that have more allocated resources such as vRAM or vCPU than they require.

The report collects and analyzes historical performance and resource configuration over a specified time period.

  • The Oversized Virtual Machines by CPU and Oversized Virtual Machines by Memory tables display VMs with excessive CPU and memory resources and deliver recommendations for their reconfiguration.

Click a VM in the Virtual Machine column to drill down to VM performance charts that show how CPU and memory usage has been changing within the reporting period.

  • The Virtual Machines with Static Memory table lists all discovered VMs with static memory, their location and the amount of provisioned memory resources. You can use this information to consider enabling dynamic memory for these VMs.
