    VM has how much memory? VM has how many snapshots?

    1. Reducing the size of a VMDK is not supported
    2. If a VM is powered off the size of the the swap file is 0 bytes. If you powered on the size of the swap file is the same as the configured vMEM of the VM (assumed there is no memory reservation).  This increase the storage consumption of a VM
    3. Quiesced Snapshots also increase the storage consumption because the vMem is stored also

    I think you see #2 which is pretty normal.
