Ok, but this should depend from the drivers the OS provides for power saving mechanism - not xen byself. On high load servers power saving is not a main question - so this might be OK for such situations. In Xen 3.4(2/3) are several newer technologies which are build for the xen 4 system / release (regarding subsystems performance, flexibility and others). I assume that the step from 3.(2/3) to 3.4 in NetBSD would be larger then in other xen minors before. Many management tools still relying on 3.x as with 4.0 and especially 4.1 the config syntax was changed in several parts and not backward compatible (some see that as features, others not...). Anyhow - it would be really nice to see xen 4 in netBSD ;) best regards, Niels. -- --- Niels Dettenbach --- Syndicat IT&Internet http://www.syndicat.com T.-Muentzer.-Str. 2, 37308 Heilbad Heiligenstadt - DE --- Kryptoinfo: PGP public key ID 651CA20D Fingerprint: 55E0 4DCD B04C 4A49 1586 88AE 54DC 4465 651C A20D https://syndicat.com/pub_key.asc ---
