vzmem: visual noncontradictory memory distribution tool for OpenVZ (C) dkLab, http://en.dklab.ru/lib/dklab_vzmem/ Vzmem is a pseudo-graphical tool which allows you to distribute physical memory among all VEs consistently. It shows all physical memory blocks graphically in /etc/vz/conf/MEM-MAP text file and lets you to move these blocks from one VE to another to redistribute the memory. Also you may specify "additional" memory personally for each VE: such memory will be obtained from system's free memory or swap (it is reflected as modifying of privvmpages parameter). INSTALLATION ------------ cd /usr/sbin wget https://raw.github.com/DmitryKoterov/dklab_vzmem/master/vzmem chmod +x vzmem SYNOPSIS -------- 1. Initialize a new /etc/vz/conf/MEM-MAP file based on your existed OpenVZ configs: vzmem -i 300 Note that "vzmem -i" tries to create a non-conflicting memory map, so if your containers take more memory than you have, they will be shrinked proportionally in the resulting memory map. 2. Edit this file with any text editor to re-distribute the memory available to containers: 300 10003 vps1.example.com ========== 109552K 10004 vps2.example.com ============================== 335503K 20004 vps3.example.com ==========+++++++++++++++ 109552K + 221324K swap FREE ====================== 513525K You see, all the RAM is divided into 300 blocks, each block is displayed as "=" character. You may move these "=" characters among virtual machines to redistribute the memory (but you MUST keep the total number of "="s equal to 300). You may also add "+" characters to specify that this block may be used not as a RAM-only block, but as SWAP (or took from another container's free memory) too. The "=" characher impacts on VMGUARPAGES parameter, so the total number of "="s must be equal to amount of physical memory ("300" in above sample). The "+" character impacts on PRIVVMPAGES and OOMGUARPAGES. If you add "="s to "+"es for a particular container, you will receive PRIVVMPAGES. To make a non-conflicting memory allocation, it's typically safe to keep the total number of "+"es in sync with amount of swap memory. 3. To apply changes you made in /etc/vz/conf/MEM-MAP, run: vzmem -a After you run this, vzmem will also recalculate memory kilobytes displayed at the right side of each bar.
