Problem with memory.

Hello Sirs,

I have a dedicated server at OVH to conduct studies and tests of some virtualization panels, so I came up with proxmox 5 which is already a template native to OVH's servers.

I can already create servers, have access to iso, configure network, everything reading the documentation that is available to the user.

I installed a VM with Windows Server, I made the whole process of installing the correct drivers by the system.

So, I now have a problem, in the "Summary" option of VM memory usage is low.

In the "Summary" option of the node the memory consumption is high, I have 3 VMs connected with 5gb of ram configured, with nothing open inside them, the 3 so a total of 3gb of ram in use, but in the node shows more than 15gb of ram.


Does anyone have a solution for this?

This is not a filesystem, it is a virtualization technology. Could you please post a screenshot (best in english):

Datacenter -> Storage

The problem is this, I can not connect more servers, because it says that I do not have enough memory.

So creating a new VM with also 5 GB does not yield any result?

What PVE version are you running exactly? (you wiped the information from the screenshot)
I'm not talking about storage, I'm talking about ram memory.
