I use HAOS in VMWare ESXi 6.5 and is there is some issue with memory.
I had built a brand new v7 HAOS and I was up to version 2021.12.7 of HA. My system reported some updates were available so go and do the HA first up to 2021.12.9, the memory use goes up in my VM. Then do the 7.1 update of HAOS and then it goes to fuey.
The system refreshed from the update page and shows that both updates are still required, but now the VM is using all the memory it has available. So I have told the VM to shutdown so that I can free up that memory, restart never frees up the memory and it took an eternity to shutdown. The VM was set to 4GB of RAM as per suggested set up and that is why the graph flatlines at 4GB:
The first change in memory is when I did the HA update, the second spike is when I initiated the HAOS update.
Once the machine was shutdown you can see the memory goes to 0 as is expected, to try and help alleviate this problem in the future I have doubled the amount of available RAM to 8GB.
After rebooting the computer, I found that both updates had not applied. Let’s try again.
