Hi,
I was wondering if someone else has this issue, so i have proxmox on 5.4.3 with pfsense i gave it 4 gigs of ram to the vm but on pfSense it shows only 1 gig of ram? any ideas?

Thank you

Hi,
I guess you have enabled memory hotplug.
If yes FreeBSD is not able to use this out of the box.

to verify please send the config.
Code:
cat /etc/pve/qemu-server/<vmid>.config

Disable Hotplug CPU and memory this makes no sense with a router VM.

For this change, you have to turn off the VM and start it again.
The kvm process must be killed to start with these new parameters.
