Memory Utilization Test

This test auto-discovers the stack units of the Dell Switch M-Series and reports the memory utilization of each stack unit. By comparing the memory usage statistics across the stack units, administrators can quickly identify the stack unit that is currently running out of space.

Target of the test : Dell Switch M-Series

Agent deploying the test : An External Agent

Outputs of the test : One set of results for every stack unit in the Dell Switch M-Series monitored

Measurements made by the test
Measurement Description Measurement Unit Interpretation

Total memory

Indicates the total amount of memory allocated for this stack unit.

MB

 

Utilized memory

Indicates the amount of memory that is utilized by this stack unit.

MB

A low value is desired for this measure. A value close to the Total memory measure indicates that the memory resources are depleting rapidly.

Available free memory

Indicates the amount of memory that is currently available for use in this stack unit.

MB

A high value is desired for this measure.

Memory utilization

Indicates the percentage of memory utilized by this stack unit.

Percent

A low value is desired for this measure. A high value or a consistently increasing value is a cause of concern, as it could indicate a gradual erosion of memory in the stack unit. In such cases, you may want to resize the stack unit or investigate the cause of memory erosion and find a way to arrest the memory erosion.
