Re: [Xen-users] Xentop CPU usage

IIRC xentop shows VCPU usage as a percentage of a single VCPU. So 150-200% usage would translate into around 19-25% CPU usage when using 8 VCPUs. Still a lot more than what the Windows domU reports.

Yes, that's correct.

The domU has 8 VPUs pinned to it at the moment, which also show up in the task manager etc.

I'll check it out, thanks for the hints :)
