5.5. Hot Plugging Virtual Memory
Procedure 5.15. Hot Plugging Virtual Memory
- Click the Virtual Machines tab and select a running virtual machine.
- Click the System tab.
- Increase the Memory Size by entering the total amount required. Memory can be added in multiples of 256 MB. By default, the maximum memory allowed for the virtual machine is set to 4x the memory size specified. Though the value is changed in the user interface, the maximum value is not hot plugged, and you will see the pending changes icon. To avoid that, you can change the maximum memory back to the original value.
- Click.This action opens the Pending Virtual Machine changes window, as some values such as maxMemorySizeMb and minAllocatedMem will not change until the virtual machine is restarted. However, the hot plug action is triggered by the change to the Memory Size value, which can be applied immediately.
