Thread-topic: Limiting Memory Bandwidth?
Good Afternoon,

According to the docs, Xen can allocate a specific amount of memory, and
block and network I/O to a guest OS.

Is it possible to limit a guest OS to a specific memory bandwidth
allocation? The purpose is to stop one guest OS from saturating the
memory bus.

Thank you,
