I cannot use 1 VCPU per windows domain. I have SQL Server running literally 
hundreds of transactions per second. I use Windows only to hold, to contain SQL 
Server, and since 100% of the transactions come from Linux domu's, the speed 
and performance is fantastic, for there is no trip over the network. Each of my 
windows domains has 32 GB of RAM and 8 VCPU's. Without SMP I am as good as 
dead. In fact, I am buying a dew Dell box on Monday only for SQL Server.

I think you don't really get it yourself. My target would be to get the 
amount of memory on Dom0 as low as 32MB, that seems to be pretty 
impossible currently (python), but I am sure I'll get there. But did you 
do what we told you? Set the amount of vcpus to 1 per Windows domain?

Please report back if you did.

I'm happy you trust you Novell informants :) You might need to read some 
academic papers that were written about Xen. Might need to ditch Novell 
and take a different attitude to the developers of the software you are 
technically using for free. (And getting free support from!)

I have asked this individual now two times to not troll on a 
mailinglist. And reply off list, since this individual who doesn't even 
want to give a name... but google enlightens us by the name of Philip

Philip, you are making a complete fool out of yourself. It is good that 
Google keeps a track record. You seem to be a happy Asterisk user too :)
