Runs like a charm. Upgrade to xen3 was very straightforward and not
One question, though...
In Xen2 I've sometimes done the CPU allocation manually becaue the
Xen2 scheduler has seemed, well, less than perfect for my
applications. It is then very useful to be able to examine the result
in the "CPU" column in the output from "xm list". Where do I find
information about which domU was allocated to which CPU in Xen3? That
information seems to be missing from both "xm list" and "xm top".
