“Memory priority” in Windows Server 2008 R2 Service Pack 1 (SP1) Beta

After installing the Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1 beta you’ll notice that virtual machines have a new setting for memory “The Memory priority” — This setting is part of the new dynamic memory feature.

Specifically there’re three effects: » Higher priority VMs get given more memory. When memory is being given to VMs it’s given to high priority VMs first » Memory is taken from lower priority VMs first. Similarly to first point – when more memory is needed, it’s taken from low priority VMs before its taken from high priority VMs » The amount of memory removed from already running VMs when trying to start a new VM depends on the memory priority of the new VM.
