Would that be possible to set the RAM threshold limit in VM?

Would that be possible to set the RAM threshold limit in VM? In the VM its showing only 8GB but system engineer says "You guys are using  5GB RAM now, so when you get to 7GB it will automatically start up beyond 8 to whatever you need up to 24.5gB . Now It is set to 80% thresholds"

I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Yes, most likely the engineer has the RAM set to dynamically be allocated to your VM as it's required, so as you machine needs more RAM it will dynamically be applied to the VM.
