RE: [Xen-users] Terrible Xen 3.4 performance

Hi all,

I'd like happily to announce that I could fix the problem. I don't know how 
exactly I did this, but it seems it was a memory and X problem. A friend of 
mine told me to check the output of vmstat and what turned out is that the 
machine was swapping too much. I set the dom0 memory to 512Mb and after several 
X reconfigurations it works now pretty well. Hope this helps other too.

Thank you all for the quick responses,

Have you ran the obvious, top to see if the CPU is being hammered?

Xm top to see what the dom U are doing

Hi Nikola,

thank you for your quick response. I tried to disable them but there was no 
/lib/tls to be moved. Do you think this might be the problem - that i don't 
have tls?

Thank you,

Try to disable the TLS libraries.

mv /lib/tls /lib/tls.disabled
