Re: [Xen-users] Optimizing Win7 64bit on Xen 3.0.3/CentOS 5.6

Hello Digima
Besides the obvious, install the windowsgplpv
I've noticed also the documentation is very sparse in post forums ..

For CPU performance issues you can read on sched-credit.
On disk performance I have not found clear doc .. so you see the
driver blktap2, but access via phy should be faster.
I do not now what the best parameters for disk option.
In an email he sent James Harper (is safe to compile and install the
gplpv (changeset 939) for production?) Says that the driver for Vista
+ is testing yet, maybe later have better performance.

Your percentage loss that you got Windows on a DomU?
I 2003R2 32bit Windows and 64bit linux, I lose 50% of performance in
hard disk with respect to a native windows.

If you do not understand English, do not claim to google translate, he
does miracles with my bad Spanish:)
