Dear Steven,

Thanks for help.

I try dom0_mem=6144000 and my dom0 continues with (free -m 5264; xm info 4953).

In boot dom0, I dont start any domU's.

Any idea?

Thanks for all.

I have always used syntax


And that works for me.
I have never tried to use the M and not sure what it would do.
The default units are KB.  the only thing that I have seen
that gives you less memory in dom0 than what you expected is if
you make too many domU's and xen takes the memory out of dom0's hide.

Hi all,

I try to set dom0_mem=6144M in my xen 4.0.2-rc1-pre with pv_ops kernel (jeremy source) but after boot my dom0 appear in "free -m" 5408M.

My logs:
# xm info|grep memory
total_memory           : 32755
free_memory            : 27658

My free -m:

Mem:          5408       2060       3347          0         17        133

In my menu.lst:
  kernel /xen.gz dom0_mem=6144M
  module /vmlinuz- ro nomodeset root=/dev/VolGroup00/LogVol00
  module /initrd-

In compilation I set this:

Could anyone help me? Anyone experienced this?

Thank you for any help.
