I have some questions regarding memory ballooning.
I am running some PV SLES 10 Linux hosts on a physical host.

I read the FAQ questions 4.9 and 4.10, but still have some questions:
where do I enable/disable the usage of the ballooning driver?

when I change memory allocation for a domain using xm mem-set, 
I see the memory change in the virt-manager, but how do I see from within 
the virtual domain that I now have more or less memory as top and free do 
not show me the changes?

kind regards
