The VM will be put on a different CPU node than the control domain, which means that the communication between the VM’s netfront and the control domain’s netback will not be efficient. Sending network traffic to and from a VM is a fairly complex process. However, since this version the only version we recommend using does not automatically parallelise over the available VCPUs, such parallelisation needs to be done manually in order to make better use xen-hetback the available VCPU capacity.


Network Throughput and Performance Guide

Once you are done working with the disk image you can:. You are running four instances of dom0, correct? Our experiments show that tweaking TCP settings inside the VM s can lead to substantial network performance improvements.

If you notice any bugs, if you have any improvement suggestions, or if you would like to add your own script to our repository, please let us know. Many dom0 related bugfixes and improvements. Note that also the dom0 kernel needs to have the blktap2 driver.

Apologies for the inconvenience.

While irqbalance does the job in most situations, manual IRQ balancing can prove better in some situations. You should check dmesg and see which device nodes were created for you.

This is identical to the setup you would do in domain 0.


Many people prefer to not install any graphical drivers or X on dom0 for maximum stability. Persistent feature grant in xen-block system allowing greater performance. Also consult the XenCommonProblems or Category: Start user domains you might want to make sure that VMs are started one after another to avoid potential VIF static allocation problems:.

Red Hat Enterprise Linux xen–netback. If you are saturating CPU cycles in dom0, you could try increasing dom0 memory. Therefore, increasing the number of dom0 VCPUs above 4, will by default not increase the number of netback threads.
