ovs-vswitchd is the Open vSwitch daemon. This handles the networking
on the XCP system.

To diagnose your general problem, you going to want to look through
the logs and use monitoring tools to figure out what is going on.

For example /var/log/xensource.log, /var/log/messages. Use the built
in monitoring in XCP if you have the XenTools installed and can use
OpenXenManager or XenCenter to view the graphs. You can also use top
within the VMs that you expect potential problems. You may want to
setup a monitoring tool that watches at the network level such as
nagios, cacti, etc.

Hope that helps.

You may want to consider setting up a text box with XCP 1.0 or higher
to see if you can reproduce the condition there as well.
