Going back to VMware Fusion, memory overcommitment is also possible but the option to configure it is not available in the VMware Fusion UI. You will need to add the above setting into the VMware Fusion configuration file located in /Library/Preferences/VMware\ Fusion/config which does not exist by default. You will need to restart Fusion/Workstation for the change to …
VMware Fusion memory overcommit. VMware Fusion is the Workstation equivalent on OSX. It has come along way but there is not the same feature parity as there is in Windows. One handy feature is the ability to overcommit memory usage. This will swap memory usage from the host memory to disk when the host memory exceeds its threshold.

· Memory overcommit, aka the ability of VMware ESX to provision memory to virtual machines in excess of what is physically available on a host, has been a topic of discussion in virtualization blogs for quite some time (e.g., “More on Memory Overcommitment”) and apparently still is (e.g. “VMware vs. Microsoft: Why Memory Overcommitment is Useful […]
· But my boss think "Memory overcommit" is mean sum of all vm guest active memory. we didnt set the memory reserve. I am going to propose, set each vm guest ram (win 7 64 bit) and reserve 2Gb ram.
vmware memory overcommit best practices Best Practices: BindPlane Logs for Stackdriver Virtual Machines and Datastores from vCenter servers in a VMware vSphere environment. Overcommitment makes sense because, typically, some virtual machines are lightly loaded while others are more heavily loaded, and relative activity levels vary over time.
Hey mate, Memory overcommit shouldn't slow anything down, if done responsibly. ESXi uses page sharing primarily (I think), but also ballooning (which could cause slowness, but only after a certain point (ballooning should only apply to machines that are under-utilised), and also some other method related to paging.
· For quite some time, VMware has included a memory overcommit feature. The underlying technology is the Idle Memory Tax (IMT), which assigns values to "shares" of memory. To understand how IMT works, you have to understand the concept of memory shares. Essentially, VMware treats memory as a sharable resource, and each megabyte of memory is …
Re: Storage Overcommit kjb007 Apr 22, 2008 12:42 PM ( in response to Ken.Cline ) Several SAN vendors, as mentioned, do this thin-provisioning using de-dupe technologies, so the ESX, as is with NFS thin-provisioning, sees the entire filesystem, but the volume on the SAN removes duplicate blocks, in effect reducing actual disk usage. Note that your ESXi host will never use any of the memory ...
· Memory Overcommitment in The ESX server is just one of the chapters present in VMware Technical Journal, which went out few days ago. You'll find the information about how memory overcommit works and which techniques are used, and also some best practices or how to avoid pitfalls.
