Hi .well I am trying to use virtioballon driver on my KVM host . I have
assigned 400 MB current memory to my guest

The ballon size is 600MB but when I used all the 400MB of guest the RAM
of guest is not increasing.


I watch the ram usage by running following command

#free -m

But the guest is only using memory upto 400MB after that the process is
killed .

I don't see the ballon driver coming into picture. It is not doing



The ballon driver is loaded in host as well as guest
