Memory Ballooning not working?

Is anyone else having issues with memory ballooning not working in VMs? I check my linux VMs and they have virtio_ballooning loaded, but their memory won't increase past initial size.


I'm using an ASROCK Creator TRX40 w/ Ryzen Threadripper 3970X 64G DDR4.  I'm using the rule initial memory is 1core=1G and Max is 1core=2G. I'm doing this on 3 VMs 8core, 8core, and 4core.  None of which see their memory balloon while  compiling software and they end up crashing with OOM errors.
