Re: [Xen-devel] kernel Bug after upgrading to 3.0.2-2

hank you. This would be specified on the "kernel" line, correct? Also, do you have any suggestions as to what a good value may be for a machine running 15 domU's? Is there a general "rule-of-thumb" that one could use for this setting based on a 'per domU' basis?

Yes, it goes on the kernel line.

Setting it to 128M would be reasonably conservative (allowing 2000 processes per VM). The downside is that you may 'waste' up to 128MB RAM if you aren't actually running very many processes.

We're working on making the failure mode less terminal. :-)
