Is the performance in Dom0 as expected?

Can you paste the DomU configuration files?

Are both network and disk slow, or only one of them? I would recommend
using fio/iperf in order to figure out which one is the bottleneck, or
if both are.

Not sure about that, I've never used selinux and I don't know which
impact it has on performance.
