Windows vms using 1gb ram even no vms open


Recommended Posts

This happens since windows 10 I am only using Docker for windows vms and I have only one container(only pgsql-php in it). Sometimes this vms using up to 4GB ram and I have only 8Gb ram is it normal or someone mining or something with my computer? And sometimes I even not installing any vm/Docker but this process still running in background

Docker processes are not the one who are using the memory, docker is the one who is reporting the use. The memory is used by the the processes in the container and the kernel modules. Based on the information in the question, I don't see that you have problem, rather you are confused by the way that the memory is managed by the kernel, so I will try to explain on a very high level what is going on.
