I have a KVM machine with CentOS 6.4 (64bit), I have a Linux guest running well on this, I created a Windows 2008 R2 guest and once I start it, after sometime all the host memory get exhausted and both the guests (linux+win) killed.

Host has 32 GB RAM, 8 GB is allocated to Linux guest and 8 GB to Windows.

Any idea? anyone experienced similar issue?

  • While I’m not running a W2k8 R2 VM, I do have a CentOS 6.4 host node that has three Windows VMs for testing (WinXP-32bit, Win7-64bit, and Win8-64bit)
    that has been running well. I also have a handful of other Linux VMs on that host with those Windows ones.

    How long is “some time”?
    Sure sounds like a memory leak since the Windows VM will run for a little while.

    What version of KVM are you running?

  • It takes around 1-2 hours

    looking at free -m output, cached memory starts increasing and free reducing
