Amount of RAM given to VirtualBox

Hello,

 

Sorry if my question may sound stupid, but does the amount of RAM given to VirtualBox matters a lot to make SAS Studio run efficiently? I'm tempted to put a very low value due to the fact the program opens on the local computer and not on the virtual machine, but since both are linked to eachother it may not be a good solution, I don't know.

Could you give me an indication on what you think is the best ratio RAM given to the VM / remainding RAM for the local computer ?

 

Thank you!

I don't think that's quite correct, the browser is used to access the application which is running on the VM.  The VM settings will matter. I think it's set to 1GB by default and 2GB is the maximum setting. I can't imagine any recent machine having issues with that. Assuming you're using it for learning, 1GB should be plenty.
