a few ways. depending on the virtualizer you are using to create your VM it will tell you how much cores, how much RAM, and how large of a partition you gave it on the HDD during its creation.

or you can start up the VM enter a terminal window and type
Code:
$ free -m
that will show you how much RAM is installed, how much is in use, and how much SWAP and how much SWAP is in use.
