You can use RVTools! to get the information you are looking for.

OR

You can use the Powercli modules listed in below VMware blog,

PowerCLI Module to Check CPU, Memory and Storage OverCommitment

OR

If you are familiar with powershell, many scripts are found online and you can customize it.

You don't even have to run a script, select the Virtual Machine Tab in vCenter Server, click the whitespace, and select Export LIst, if you select your columns, you can add Memory Size, and Active Memory and CPU.
