Live memory allocation?


#1

Hi all,

Does KVM support what the Wikipedia calls Live memory allocation? According to the Wikipedia this is not supported, but since both VMware & VirtualBox have it I doubt very much KVM does not have it… 8)

Based on this thread, I conclude KVM supports this as well, and calls it Memory ballooning. 8)

atm only linux guests support memory ballooning, here i found some short info about it - maybe this is helpful:
