Fedora +Xen memory


So I often run a Xen guest for just a short while and then delete the guest when I'm done testing. How Do I free up the ram it was using for my Host OS Fedora. Even when I delete the Xen guest the amount of ram I have available to the Host fedora system does not change. If I reboot the RAM is once again available. Any ideas?

@blue_print This might work but I actually deleted the domains and still didn't get the memory back. I could reboot and get it all back but I'm trying to avoid reboot.

I think that his post was the answer. Using xm command and correct options should have worked.
