Looks like the hardware has 2 CPU's available and 8GB RAM?  Is that right?

If there are more CPUs available you can increase VCPUs for "saturn", likewise 
for memory.  Otherwise, you've given your domU all the resources available.  The dom0 is 
lightly loaded, but that's normal.  You can see from xentop that the system is busy.

If the hardware isn't enough for the workload, you could build a new dom0 on a 
bigger host, and migrate the domU over.


Thanks Jeff,

Yes it just has two CPU cores. What I am confused about is the really low CPU load shown on the host OS when I view the top command, seems like the server as a whole is not loaded much at all.
