Would escalate to xen-devel. (12) aka Suse xenified  was Jan Beulich stuff.
He might have an answer.

Hi there,

I am starting a new thread to try and solve a problem I am having will slow network throughput to the XEN host (not to a domU).

I have confirmed my problem occurs with PVOPS 'xen/master' kernel as well using http://pasik.reaktio.net/xen/pv_ops-dom0-debug/config- as the .config.

It also occurs with a forward ported xenified kernel ( using the attached config-11-xen (.config).

However when using the xen kernel found in debain lenny (2.6.26-2) for the amd64 architecture I get similiar transfer rates to my Xen host as I do on a baremetel kernel.

Bastian Blank perhaps you could point me in the right direction in regards to a debian specific customization or patch I should be aware of?

Maxium transfer rate (to/from hard disk) using the PVOPS 'xen/master' kernel and forward ported xenified kernel ( is bottlenecking at ~1MB/s. On the debain lenny xen kernel I am getting ~4.5MB/s.

I was hoping one could suggest options in the .config that might be modified in order to improve network throughput of a XEN kernel and therefor increase the data transfer rates over the netowork to and from the Xen host.

Thanks alot for any help! As always I will be willing to accept any suggestions :)
