VM Guest performance issues
Posted on 2011-10-07
I wonder if anyone had any suggestions for my problem. I have a VM running on vsphere 4.1 (vm version 7).
The server is running server 2003 sp1. The machine is running a SQL database but nothing to intense. At the moment the server is spiking many of its processes so that most of the time 100% of the processor is consumed. The machine is configured with 2gb of RAM, and this maybe where the issue is. If i logon to the server (eventually) the task manager tells me that the server is committing 2gb of RAM, however under the resource window vsphere is telling me that the consumed host memory is 144mb and the active guest memory is 172mb???
This to me is where the problems might be, but im not sure why or what to do. Any help appreciated.
