Re: [Xen-users] Disable memory balloon in dom0

But if you set it to 0 what *is* the threshold? 0?

According to the comments in the config
# Dom0 will balloon out when needed to free memory for domU.
# dom0-min-mem is the lowest memory level (in MB) dom0 will get down to.
# If dom0-min-mem=0, dom0 will never balloon out.

So I take that to mean setting dom0-min-mem to 0 disables memory ballooning(for dom0). I just want to clarify if that is the way to disable memory ballooning from dom0. I had been told in ##xen that booting with dom0_mem=X effectively disables ballooning.

Or is all of this mute if I never allocate more memory that what I have in the physical machine total?
