How can I tell if I am over allocating my memory and cpu resourses in vSphere?

Last Modified: 2012-08-24
I have a cluster that has two ESXi 4 hosts in it. Clicking on the cluster tree icon and selecting the Summary tab > View DRS Resource Distribution chart I can see that both hosts in the cluster are over the 50% used memory mark. Is this a clear indication that if one hosts fails that the remaining host will not have enough resources to run the VMs that should normally fail over?
