Description jniederm 2017-01-10 15:39:31 UTC
Description of problem:
... which can cause problems:
* long starting time of QEMU
* potential instability of the VM if too much memory is hot-plugged
* on PowerPC lots of memory can be allocated in vain 

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
4.2 master, commit 4e92536

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Import VM from external provider
2. Check max memory size of the VM

Actual results:
max memory ~ *MaxMemorySizeInMB config value, i.e. usually several orders of magnitude larger than memory size

Expected results:
about 4x larger that memory size
