Could anybody explain me a little bit what is the difference between
<currentMemory> and <maxMemory>. I use qemu-kvm hypervisor*. *When I have
1024MB maxMemory and 512MB of currentMemory, I can see just 512MB in guest
os (free -m).* *Is it ok? Does it have something to do with ballooning
technique? What happened if guest will needs more memory than 512MB?

Thank you for answers :)

Kind regards,
