Win10 VM ballooning


Recommended Posts

Hi, I setup a Win10 VM with GTX1080 passthrough. Everything's working fine except memory ballooning. The VM is allocated with min 8GB and max 16GB memory. In Task Manager I see total memory as 16GB, but shows >60% used. I know this is not true as the real memory used is less than 2GB. At first I thought this is how ballooning works - it shows "total memory used". In my case it's 8GB reserved + 2GB used. But I've never seen any additional memory being released to the VM, even when Task Manager shows >90% memory utilization.


Has anyone got the same experience? Maybe there's a driver/software I didn't install?
