Different sized hosts have varying memory resources, so setting static flags for exact memory values doesn’t always make sense. Memory % Alerting will allow you to set thresholds based on a percentage of your memory used/free, instead a of exact values so you can know when your hosts are running rich or running lean. Using too much memory on a host can lead to poor application performance, whereas, using too little memory on a consistent basis might mean that you are under-utilizing expensive resources that might be better used elsewhere.

To try this out: Go to your Account > Click on “Create Alert” (top right of the Memory chart) > Select 'Memory Free/Used %’ as the metric from the dropdown, and set your thresholds.
