[SOLVED] Hyper-Threading vs No Hyper-Threading; Fixed vs Variable Memory

Feb 18, 2016
Hi. I have a question for Proxmox 4.4.

There is the option "Ballooning" which is available with the option "Use fixed size memory". In the help manual says :

Even when using a fixed memory size, the ballooning device gets added to the VM, because it delivers useful information such as how much memory the guest really uses. In general, you should leave ballooning enabled, but if you want to disable it (e.g. for debugging purposes), simply uncheck Ballooning.

I'm configuring a Windows server 2012 VM. I want to have a fixed size memmory, but I'm confused about this option. Should I enable it?
