Hi. I entered one of our domU tonight and see following problem:
# iowait -k 5

avg-cpu:  %user   %nice %system %iowait  %steal   %idle

           0.00    0.00    0.00  100.00    0.00    0.00

I check other domU and dom0 on same server - there were high iowait: from 20% 
to 50% with few transactions per second and about 0.1-1.5 Mb/sec storage 
bandwith usage per domU. This domU have no disk IO at all but show LA 15 and 
possible higher.

Did you check for processes in a "D" state?

ps aux | grep " D"
