Shrink/Reduce assigned RAM for a virtual server

This post was originally published on this site

Hi all,

I’m a new user in this community and I don’t know if this is the right section to insert this question: in case my apologies.


I “inherited” a virtual server (Linux Centos 7) with too many RAM assigned (60 GB) and I need to reduce it to 16 GB and I have a doubt.

Is it sufficient turn off it and shrink the amount of RAM or are necessary other operations?


Many thanks in advance.
