Parent memory reserve with dynamic memory

Most people I know who have spent a lot of time with Hyper-V have had the experience of accidentally taking too much memory away from the parent partition.  This happens when they start too many virtual machines – and all of a sudden the performance and responsiveness of the parent partition goes down significantly. The response from people who hit this is usually to stop the last virtual machine that they started, to reduce its memory, and then start it up again. This solution has worked in the past – but is no longer an... [Lire la suite]

VMware justifie habilement le retard de son hyperviseur bare-metal

"Il est temps de remettre les pendules à l'heure», explique... [Lire la suite]

Guest Paging vs. Virtualization Paging and Negative Memory Availability

Jeff has discussed this at some length over on the virtualization team blog, but as a general rule of thumb we believe that it is much better to have paging occur inside the guest operating system rather than at the virtualization layer (if paging is needed). The simple reason for this is that the guest operating system has far better understanding of which are the best sections of memory to page out – where as all the virtualization layer can do is to guess at what should be paged out. In my recent demonstrations of dynamic... [Lire la suite]
