Re: [Xen-users] Question on CPU usage

The default credit scheduler settings give equal share to all assigned
vcpus across all available physical cores. For instance, if you look at
the output of xm vcpu-list , you'll see the arrangements that Xen made.

There are many more granular controls available to you via the credit
scheduler, such as weights and caps per guest. The logic is very
straight forward, this page should give you all the information needed
to understand it:


Thanks, the default is adequate at the moment, just wanted to check how it was done since there are a couple of VMs that can use some processor and didn't want them to be sat fighting over one core while the other three were idle !
