we have some experiments running on a recent (less than a week old) Xen unstable. We are seeing dom0 HTTP performance (measuring using curl repeatedly fetching the same 1mb file from a nearby host over a gigabit link over HTTP1.1) that is three times worse than native Linux on the same machine.

The machine is a Pentium 4 and the Ethernet card is an Intel e1000. Xen has debugging turned off, and we are using the default scheduler. Only dom0 is running.

Is running benchmarks on Unstable considered a sane thing to do these days? Does anyone have ideas for how we can increase the performance in this setup?
