there are (a few - less than 10 of each when compiling cyrus-imapd and
deps) on dom0. I tried changing memory for dom0. Giving dom0 256Mo makes
pagein/pageout not appear but compilation don't seem faster (compared to
my P4 w/512Mo workstation on a UDMA 100 disk).
what's "funny" is that dom0 has a load of 1.5 where dom1 is only 0.73.
I suppose this shows NFS impact on CPU (disks are Ultra320 SCSI).
NFS also might explain the slowlyness of the compilation process.
