When I use auto-scaling, why do tools like 'top' and 'free' not show a change in memory usage?

Since auto-scaling 'hot plugs' resources into the VM it cannot update the kernel structures on a running system, even though the memory is added and being used.


On most Linux distributions you can run "cat /proc/xen/balloon" to check the memory allocation from auto-scaling.
