Re: [Xen-users] Improving the performance of a Xen VM

If I understand correctly PV drivers must be available on the operating system of the unprivileged domain (our operating system). If this is true we only have access to emulated devices which I currently use. The operating system itself has drivers for realtek8139, 8169, pcnet, e100 and e100 I believe. However I could not get all of the emulated drivers to work. Pcnet worked but as said the results aren't quite satisfying.

Do you have PV drivers for disk and network or are you using the
emulated devices?
