Memory alert in ESX VMWare

I'm getting a memory alarm on one of my VMware boxes.
It's got a total of 16GB installed and 13GB are being used.
Is this alarm normal?

The alarm says:

 host memory usage

If you still have a few GB free, you shouldn't worry too much.

The yellow alarm does indicate that you probably could get better performance by adding more memory.

Hi,

It means you have used 90% of your host memory for more than 5 mins. If you go to the Alarms tab, then Triggered Alarms you can accept and clear the alarm.

Hope this helps.
