Misc notes about Xen

  • If there is not enough memory to start an HVM guest, then it may be because Dom-0 is ballooning and taking all the free memory. It can be set to 1024Mbytes by using: /usr/sbin/xm mem-set Domain-0 1024
  • Here is an article about it: http://systembash.com/content/memory-allocation-problems-on-xen-server-fix/
  • If the hypervisor console dies, restart it with /usr/sbin/xenconsoled
  • The console can then be accessed with: xm console [name of vm]
