The original question specified having 5 guests with 8G each on a host with 32G, so overcommitting ram was expected, wiring each guest in this setup will cause panics not swapping. > You need swap space if you are going to not pass -S and over commit, > if you do not have enough swap space for the over commit your system > runs out of swap and usually ends up killing random processes, and > random usually means the most important things you are running!
