dom0 memory increase

Hi Team,

I have increased memory on dom0 dynamically using "xm mem-set 0 1024M" initially it was 800MB. now xm list shows memory of dom0 as 1024M but when I do free -m or cat /proc/meminfo it still says 800MB only.

Is there a way that the dom0 could detect 1024MB without rebooting ?

I even tried giving value to "/sys/devices/system/xen_memory/xen_memory0/info/current_kb" but it says permission denied.

Any help is much appreciated .
