I notice there are discrepancies between memory related numbers.
A qube with maxmem=1024 shows 1008 MB RAM in qui-domains and
free --mebi inside that same qube shows 936 MiB.
It seems the difference between maxmem and qui-domains’s number is always 16 MB. OTOH, the difference with
free is not a fixed number and varies with the memory size.
At first, I thought this might be due to the multiple-byte units but calculations show it is not that.
Can someone please explain the reason for these discrepancies?
Also, what is the reason for seeing qubes created by the installer having memory settings aligned to powers of 10 (e.g. 4000 MB) rather than powers of 2 (4096)?
