I am trying to understand how the command "xm mem-max" works and write some testcases for it. Here are some confusion I have:

1. Can maximum memory be adjusted for a domain at runtime by using 'xm mem-max'? Right now, I see that the max memory change made by 'xm mem-max' is only recorded by xend. There is no change in /proc/xen/balloon and /proc/meminfo.

2. If the answer to 1 is no, how to activate the change to the domain? How should I verify it?

Thanks a lot,
