Re: [Xen-devel] question on balloon driver

At least on my machine, with current unstable, I cannot create more than

attempting to create more at that point gives an out-of-memory error

Perhaps there is some switch I haven't seen which allows increasing the
amount of memory allocated to the Xen kernel?  It would also be nice if
domains had far less overhead until resources were allocated to them.

You run out of Xen heap. We won;t be able to make any more available on x86_32, but there is a boot parameter to x86/64 Xen to set the amount of Xen heap, in megabytes.
