Subject [jira] [Commented] (CLOUDSTACK-3415) Guest os memory is not getting dynamically adjusted incase of overcommit
Date Sat, 27 Jul 2013 16:05:49 GMT


Bharat Kumar commented on CLOUDSTACK-3415:

The memory shown at the guest os level is not correct as the guest OS is not aware of the
memory optimization at the hypervisor level. In order to verify the actual allocation vmware
counters should be observed.

In this case as mentioned total memory > actual memory available. which means overcommit
is working. 

this is not a bug.

> In case of contention existing vms memory should automatically get reduced (should be
between reserved and max)  so that new vms can accommodate on host.But i did not  see this
behavior on vmware.
> Guest OS always shows max memory even in case of contention .
> Steps to reproduce
> ---------------------------
> 1-Preapre a CS setup with vmware esxi5.1
> 1-Set memory overcommit to 2
> 3-Create a service offering of1 (cpu=500MGZ,Memory=4096MB)
> 4-Deploy vms using service offering of1 till no memory  left on hypervisor
> 5-run cat /proc/meminfo on each guest
> Actual
> ----------
> 1-Step 5 shows each guest is having 4096MB
> 2-Total guest os memory(at guest OS level) >what physically available on host
> Expected
> --------------
> 1-VMs memory should dynamically get adjusted (<4096) in order to accommodate new vms
on host
> 2-Total guest os memory (at guest OS level) <=what physically available on host
