What's the relevance to know/see how much memory some guest is consuming on
In my perspective, it's important to the Kimchi user (that IMHO generally
is a sys administrator) know the memory usage of the guest relative to the
host. The workload of each guest is responsibility of the administrator of
that guest - that not necessarily is the administrator of the host system.
After read the task description that Daniel sent here, I say to develop the
feature to inform the memory usage of the guest relative to the host.
my 2 cents!

But it is. That information is specific to the guest OS, I believe there's
no way of retrieving it without actually connecting to the guest (via a
specialized agent or SSH or whatever). And we're talking about only
Unix/Linux; e.g. Windows provides a different method to retrieve its memory
So you're right, this is very dependent on the guest OS and I guess
there's no way of doing it in a way that works for every guest.
