I'm not a staff member. Just a warning--I might be totally wrong about all this. Or...not.
IIRC, the coded limit is 4TiB per VM (I think there's a QEMU imposed limit at 42 bits...somebody correct me if I'm wrong.) Which gets into a whole big off-topic discussion about address paths and the size of page tables and their structure, so....yeah. Anyway.
I'm going to guess (given your recent posts) that you don't have that much available on the hosts, so Mark's answer is still correct--it's as much as you have in your hosts.
So we can *all* bypass some back and forth: Are you *really* trying to ask about memory over-commitment?
If so, the short answer is "Please don't do that if you care about stability, which we know you do. Use ballooning."
If not, please ask the question behind "how much memory can I allocate to a VM?"
In short: Why are you asking?

Good. Nice to hear that.
But I need someone in the Proxmox staff could answer the question... Just to be more accurate about it.
