Re: [Xen-users] Xen network tune for fileserver in DomU

We should have to look no further than the domain of your email address
to call shenanigans on your comments.  There is no such thing as a
solution that doesn't work well in a virtualized environment unless your
particular needs out-strip the hardware or limits of the hypervisor.

To the OP: Build your file server in Xen and test it thoroughly.  If you
find scalability issues, come to the list with specific problems (i.e.,
"with a xen 3.4 domU with 1GB ram and 2 cores, at 250 clients doing
random read i/o on a set of 1000 files on ext3 with an lvm vbd, I run
into i/o slowness") and we'll see what knobs can be turned.
