[Xen-users] 'xm list' states


can someone explain the states shown by the 'xm list' command?

'r' (running) - The domain is currently running.
- This flag is always shown for the Domain 0, but never for
  unprivileged domains, why?

'b' (blocked) - The domain is blocked.
- What does that mean? Why should a domain be blocked?

'p' (paused) - The domain is paused.
- Ok, that one is easy, the domain was paused with 'xm pause'

'c' (crashed) - The domain has crashed.
- If i do 'echo 1 > /proc/balloon' inside a unprivileged domain, i
  will get a kernel panic. But the state says nothing about that? The
  domain is definitively crashed, but the xm list command says nothing
  about that. Why?

'd' (dying) - The domain is in the process of dying.
- Well, poor little domain, but what does that mean?

Maybe anybody here who can clearify the meanings of the state. The
manual page is not very helpful.

Many Thanks and greetings,
