I've been testing live migration extensively, but I'm not sure how it works.

Sometimes I can successfully migrate a VM from one server to another, but other times it just fails, and I don't know the reason.

When migrating, xen "saves" the state of the machine, and restores it on another server, right? Does it saves files somewhere? How much avaiable memory do I need to run the migration?
