Windows Dynamic Memory Sensor




I dont want to check memory status on a few Hyper-V VM, because they have Dynamic Memory configuration on Hyper-V


Vm1 : Startup Memory 4 GB, Minimum Memory 4 GB, Maximum Memory 12 GB

But when I add this server to PRTG, When ram usage at 3,6 GB -> I m getting warning about ram usage because its looking percent available ram. How can I check Maximum Memory ?

Example : https://pasteboard.co/I6AJ8nN.png

Thank you.
