[Xen-fr] Re: [Xen-users] How can we increase de maximum memory for a dom

But when you execute xentop (xen 3.0.2) you can see a column named "MAXMEM" and this value is greate than the value fixed in the conf file...

What does mean this option (if there is enough memory and a domU need more memory, that's mean the domU can use more memory that the memory assigned by the conf file??? ) ? How can we adjuste it?

You can change the amount of memory in a XEN DomU, however it seems the DomU does not recognise any memory assigned to it above the amount specified in the DomU config file. However I can reduce it dynamically and increase it back up to that maximum value. For example, I can specify 1024MB as the initial amount, then reduce the amount of memory to 64MB, then increase back 768MB, however I cannot go to 1536MB as that is greater than my starting

The command for adjusting domain memory is xm mem-set <domID> <mem>

Particularly for hardware assisted fully virtualised operating systems
stability seems to improve by reducing Dom0 memory as much as possible.

Hope this helps,
