VMware memory overcommit

Memory overcommit is the memory allocation feature for Vmware.

VMware memory overcommit works by taking shares from machines that are not using them and allocating those shares to other virtual machines (VMs). This process happens dynamically, relieving administrators from having to allocate memory manually.  The host checks share usage every 60 seconds and makes adjustments as necessary.
