Prior to AOS version 5.1.2 memory_reserved had not been populated at the time of VM creation. Once the VM was powered on the memory_reserved field was populated and the value remained persistent even when the VM was powered off.

The issue was fixed in version 5.1.5 and 5.5 and above.

It is important to remember that there is no over-provisioning of memory in AHV. The "total provisioned memory" amounts to all the memory configured on all VMs regardless of power state.

The "total reserved memory" is memory configured to all Powered on VMs only.
