My motto is “often wrong”.
Virtio Balloon in action — with native linux kvm tool | Kashyap Chamarthy
The virtio balloon device allows KVM guests to reduce their memory size thus relinquishing memory to the host and to increase it back thus taking memory from the host. For example, a 2G host running two VMs each with 2G would be over-committed.

One of the great benefits of using Kvk as the hypervisor means KSM is not limited to KVM and virtual machines, but can also reduce memory pressure with normal Linux applications. This site uses Akismet to reduce spam.

Ivan Kozik 7. In bytes — If all your vm’s are, genuinely, actively paging all memory in the guests – the hypervisor won’t be able to do much about it.
Ballooning is smart or dumb? – VM Engine (KVM) – Unraid
Hi can you please tell me the correct procedure to use a virtioballoon I in Linux. Now, bytes 10MB is reduced from the guest and returned to the host. Got DHCP answer from The balloon has to be automatic in order to be really useful.

Of course, if the reduced guest wants to run an application that consumes more than the 1G it currently has, it has to grow liunx. Suppose, in the previous example, that one of the guests is using 1G and its other 1G is bal,oon. You’re rolling the dice if you force the hypervisor into a position where it needs to start thinking about this.
What happens to the processes that were using the memory when the hypervisor decides to steal memory from the guest operating system?
Is the currentMemory parameter dynamically adjustable?
