- IBM - Memory Reclamation: Feature Presentation
The flexibility to reassign (add and remove) system resources is critical to customers. Today's workloads are not static. With Dynamic Memory Downgrade on the IBM z14, a system administrator can take real memory offline from a z/VM partition, making it available to other partitions on the CEC. The removal will be dynamic; no reIPL of the z/VM image is required to accomplish a change in the memory configuration. This session will describe these new capabilities, give some guidance on use, and walk through some examples.

John Franciscovich - IBM - Understanding z/VM's LGR and Relocation Domains
It sounds like an old real estate joke, but the three most important things to understand about Live Guest Relocation: Domains, Domains, Domains. Live Guest Relocation was introduced in z/VM 6.2 and many customers have grown to love it and depend on it. One of the key concepts associated with LGR is relocation domains. If you've ever wanted to really understand this part of the whole relocation construct, then come to this session. We'll describe what relocation domains are and how they effect LGR. You'll leave being able to understand how virtual architectures are influenced by relocation domains and how they affect LGR. In other words, you'll leave being able to amaze your friends and coworkers.
