Re: [Xen-users] lvm xen storage performance

I am using 4.3 but it turns out that hard drive was acting strange so I replaced it and now everything is working fine .

From your subject I assume that you are attaching lvm logical volumes to
guests. Could you provide the version of Xen you are using and the
kernel you are running in both Dom0 and DomU? Also the boot log and the
config file of the DomU might be helpful.

"very slow" is not really an accurate way to describe performance, could
you run some disk benchmarks attaching the volume to Dom0 and DomU to
actually see the speed difference. I would recommend using fio for that.
