Memory Reclamation are mentods that I famiar with on how ESXi host will reclam memory from VM once phyical memory resources are used up.  If host memory are not fully used or memory limits are not reach, then ESXi host has no need to reclaim it.

Please see these two links and see if they help.

I've already check this document and I didn't find anything regarding memory trimming. Because I found that this feature is used by vmware workstation I am wondering if this feature is used only in vmware workstation.
