Ticket #2926 (closed defect: fixed)
Memory Percentage Checks not well suited to larger RAM amounts => Fixed in SVN
|Reported by:||dbialac||Owned by:|
When creating a virtual host on a system with a substantial memory pool, it does not make sense to use percentages to determine if a virtual machine is occupying too much memory. For example, my system have 3.25GB of ram. Due to political issues, I can not run the OS of my choice, but I can virtualize it. In vmware, I'm given the option of using up to 2892MB of memory for the VM, and both the Host (Windows XP) and the Child run well. Virtual box arbitrarily and needlessly limits me to around 1.6MB. If I expand beyond that, I get an error message saying that the memory cannot be allocated -- something that is obviously false because VMWare can do it.
