Hi there,

I'm seeing dropped RX packets on the vif for many domUs, as reported in xm top. Sometimes hundreds per second.

Within the domus involved I see no dropped packets.

This normally only happens when there is simultaneous high disk and network load.

Can someone please explain why the dropped packets show on the vif in dom0 but not on the interface as seen in domU?

Is this a bug in xm top which is mis-reporting something?
