+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #1024010 +++
Some applications, like Oracle Directory Server, use cached memory and never release it. Users need to take this memory into account when planning the memory requirements.
Please report guests Buffered/Cached memory in addition to used memory, currently reported as a percent bar.
I'd suggest to add a field in Guest General sub-tab with "Free: X, Buffered: Y, Cached: Z."

Yaniv, Is there a VM Memory report that we could look to add this additional data to DWH for now that we can capture this? If so, I'd like to look to target a clone of this BZ for 3.6 for DWH/Reports.

We need engine to collect it, once it's in the engine db it should not be a problem to add it to dwh and reports.
I see that this data was added to the engine, to vm_dynamic.
What report should include this. Is this relevant for capacity planing (inventory) or a Trend report ?
To clone this also to DWH?

I should be added to ad hoc domains

Yes, to track adding this to DWH.
