    Hi @Vaishnav AV-FT ,

    I understand that you are trying to understand the sharing of resources by multiple App services running in an App Service plan, and private bytes. The following details should help you with it:

    Sharing/division of resources by Apps running in an App Service Plan - For dedicated and isolated App Service plans all the apps running in it, share the resource available on the underlying VMs. If multiple apps are in the same App Service plan, they all share the same VM instances. Please see this link for more details - How does my app run and scale?

    There are no set division of resource/quotas for dedicated/isolated app services running in dedicated or isolated App service plan. It is only defined for the Free and shared plan - please see this link for more details - Understand quotas

    Private bytes - Private Bytes is the current size, in bytes, of memory that the app process has allocated that can't be shared with other processes.

    Please let us know if you have any questions.
