Higher RAM usage of VMs in host live mode

Hello,
My Problem is, that I am running out of RAM in host live mode so that I can’t even run Gateway and Workstation at the same time and I am getting the error with “No space left on device”.
I have used Whonix in the same setup on the same Computer before about one year ago. Back then I could run Gateway + 3x Workstation at once. It was Debian 11 and Whonix 16 as well.

I would like to understand why this is the case. Does anyone have a clue? I reinstalled all from scrap, so I also might have done a mistake there.

System memory:16GB
Gateway memory: 512MB
Workstation memory: 1,5GB
