it seems I am using tap:aio on what appears to be quite slow:

disk = [ "tap:aio:/disk0/server3.img,xvda,w" ]

Is there a good way to convert from tap:aio to lvm?

Hi Randy,

I don't use LVM and my performance is fine.

Have you looked into the domU itself troubleshooting as if it were a non virtual host?

Things like vmstat, top, tcpdump, dstat, etc... just to get a snapshot of what your system is doing.

Apply the same approach to dom0 as well.

I've used both fixed and non fixed disk images w/o issue.

My env is Centos using the bundled version of Xen as well as Gitcos latest 3.X versions.
