KVM BALLOON MEMORY DRIVER

In the future it would be nice to run some rarely used VM and don’t have to “waste” 1GB ram just for that. If that’s the case you could configure unraid with some swap space and see if that will allow KVM to swap guest memory. You will notice higher CPU activities on the host ksm daemon and the used memory on the host will be lowered significantly see start page showing the overall memory usage. The balloon device is important to support memory over-commitment because it allows for reducing a guest’s memory size if needed. 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. The VM decides which processes or cache pages to swap out to free up memory for the balloon. Set it to on to enable automatic ballooning.
