Subject Re: Output of listVirtualMachineMetrics API
Date Fri, 18 Jan 2019 09:44:04 GMT
Hi Anurag,

Looks odd. In short your values show memorykbs = memorytargetkbs = (memory x 1024) = (memorytotal
x 1024 x 1024) - so in other words looks like the same metric.

Memoryintfreekbs should be smaller - my only guess here is that it's actually hypervisor internal
used memory - which would be memorykbs + hypervisor overhead. 

This is guesswork only though - a code check is probably required here.

    I am using a monkeybox KVM based setup with a single host to play with Cloudstack and
observe the below output of list virtualmachinemetrics regarding memory usage for a VM of
small type-
          "memory": 512,
          "memoryintfreekbs": 608844,
          "memorykbs": 524288,
          "memorytargetkbs": 524288,
          "memorytotal": "0.50 GB",
    I had the couple of questions regarding this -
    1) Is memoryintfreekbs the memory free in kbs or something else?
    2) If above is yes, isn't the free memory supposed to be smaller than total?
    Is this a known issue or am I missing something about these metrics.
