To: All

 

Does anybody have whitepapers on HP Virtual Machine/memory recommendations I'm trying to get the following question answered. 

 

 1. How much memory does a VM guest actually use?   

 2. If I allocate X gigs to a VM, how much does it actually use? 
 3. How much memory does the VM host need? 
 4. How much swap should I allocate to a VM host?

Any experiences or "rule-of-thumb" that you use?
