Thread-topic: Xen Questions



I’m rather new to Xen I have a testbed running with 3 VMs on an old Athlon XP 2400+ with 512mb ram.

So far the System is doing good.


I was wondering if anyone has some real life values from productive Systems running Xen. I am planning to Replace a Virtuozzo Host with a Xen Machine.

It is going to have 4GB of RAM and 2 Xeon CPUs with HT enabled. I am yet unsure if its better to use LVM or NFS Storage for the Datafiles.


There will be 16 – 20 Virtual Machines running on the System, none with more than 128MB RAM allocated to it. Most of them do not Produce lots of CPU Usage or Disk I/O however there is short peaks where some of the Servers will create a significant load.


Can I mix Debian and SuSE Virtual Machines without running into Problems ?

Is it also possible to run FreeBSD as VM ?


Last but not least does anyone know a good Support Company that would do the basic Setup or check my Setup, I don’t want to run into Problems later cause I missed a required Configuration Flag.



Thank you


Kind Regards


Christian Keil
