Hi all,

I've read several interesting thread about this topics in the xen-users@ list; at present moment I know that every domU need their own swap because of the dom0 swap isn't "shareable". I use Debian Etch (64 bits) with XEN 3.2.1 as dom0 and the same combination as domUs (para-virtualized domains).

I've seen that domUs are unstable if I don't setting up a swap partition; it seems that domUs without swap are works fine until a high load situation. Under high load, the domUs with swap are more stables than domUs ones without it.
