How many guests should I be able to run?

Erik Harmon


I've got a dual-cpu 2Ghz AMD server with 64 cores and 128GB of RAM. I've got to run a bunch of HVM guests on it with 448MB of RAM each, about 180 of them. If I start more than about 60 VMs, XenCenter loses connection with the server and it's impossible to reconnect (ssh still works, though, xe-restart-toolstack does not work.)


Is this a hardware limitation, a hypervisor limitation, or is my configuration somehow wrong? I've tried increasing RAM to the DOM0.
