Memory Usage Notes

VMware Workstation allows you to make the following memory-related settings:

  • The memory size of a particular virtual machine
  • The amount of the host computer's RAM that can be used for virtual machines.
  • The extent to which you want to allow the host operating system's memory manager to swap virtual machines out of physical RAM
  • By adjusting these three settings, you can affect both virtual machine and overall system performance.

    This section describes how VMware Workstation uses the memory configuration parameters to manage virtual machines and system memory properly.
