From the drop-down menu in the Resource allocation panel, select a relative metric for allocating memory to all virtual machines.

Symbolic values Low, Normal, High, and Custom are compared to the sum of all shares of all virtual machines on the server and, on an ESX host, the service console. Share allocation symbolic values can be used to configure their conversion into numeric values.

In the Resource allocation panel, use the slider to select the amount of reserved memory and the memory limit, or use the up and down arrows to enter the number of MBs allocated.

For more information on memory values, see the mem man page.
