What's the relevance to know/see how much memory some guest is consuming on Kimchi front-end?

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!
Best regards,

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 usage.

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.
