Overview

 

The Top-N widget shows incorrect values about VM memory overallocation.

Cause 

 

The issue occurs with Hyper-V virtual machines which use static memory. These VMs show no data about memory utilization.
The issue occurs when the default limitation for the search query is changed.

Resolution

Modify the search query so that it excludes VMs that do not have dynamic memory enabled.

For example:

vm.memory:[1024 TO *] AND vm.powerstate:poweredOn AND vm.consumedPercentMemload.week:[0 TO 30] AND NOT vm.dynamicMemoryEnabled:"false"
