I'm getting a bit confused here. "enforced" really doesn't fit into the
context, or does it?

What should it say/explain? [soft-limit]
Who is target audience?

And I think the last question is very important, because your technical
mambo-jumbo might be just fine and tip-top to the last bit, but if
nobody else understands it, then such help seems to be a bit helpless to
me. Meaning:
* allocated/guaranteed I can imagine;
* ascertained gave me really non-sense translation, although that might
be caused by crappy dictionary;
* enforced - uh ... how? what? when? Is it when host is running low on
memory and/or there are "many" VMs competing for memory? If so, please
explain it somewhere if it isn't already(yeah, I'm trying to figure out
the meaning).

Or what happens when memory reaches 'soft-limit'?

Soft limit
    This limit causes nxqddb to display a warning dialog box(see figure
5.19) if the number of matches found from your search exceeds the
specified limit.
Hard limit
    This limit tells nxqddb to abort the search operation if ...

Or got it all wrong(wouldn't be the first time :]).

Take this reply easy as it sounds kind of furious to me.
