I have a newbie question regarding the hardware virtualization in XEN.

When is actually hardware virtualization being used?
If we assume the CPU supports HV, does XEN use it by default?
Is there a possibility to switch it off, so that paravirtualization is used?
How can I check if I am currently using HV or PV?

Thanks in advance!

Best regards,
