Hi,

 I have resource pool with 25 GB reservation. The Resources pool contains 3 VMs and all are 8 GB allocated. The normal memory utilization of each VM is 40% and i can see always Consumed Memory is 8GB for each VM.

But  some times i can see there is drop in Consumed memory in perf chart  when VM running live.

Question:  If reservation in place, why there is drop in Consumed Memory for the VM . Believe that it will be equal to the reservation until the VM shutdown.

Note : There is Memory Contention on the Host.
