Hi Folks,

While using the gigE interface, I saw that two dom0s can get a throughput of
925Mbps, while two domU's can only get 342Mbps (across two different machines).
For a 100Mbps NIC, thruput was same for both dom0 and domU (94.1Mbps). Is there
some gigE specific traffic shaping going on (couldn't find that looking casually
at network-bridge script), or this is just the way it is? Please let me know
if this is accepted behavior, or something is messed up with my setup.

Best regards,
