perhaps not an answer, but what does:



xm info


show with regards to how much memory you have?

Xen is a kernel. The SLES 11 SP2 you're interfacing with is actually a special
guest called Dom0.

So I can see my 32Gb of RAM
This mean that only 20GB is allocated to dom0
Possible to configure this memory allocated to dom0?

Thanks for your time
