I have a virtual server running with 8 DomUs in addition to the Dom0 of 
one is a mail server, one is a firewall, one in DMZ as webserver, one is 
a file
Server /SAMBA, NFS), etc. I have two PVR (VDR, a video tape recoder). 
One of
them, I have given a physical NIC with PCI passthrough, the other not. 
In addition,
I have set up a streaming server that serves HD (1080p), also though 

There is no issue with all of them, so if there is a spare NIC 
available, I think
I would use it. Otherwise, I see no real issue with network load. 

You can also use cred and weight to prioritize your streaming domain, 
just in case
There is heavy load. See 

Pleas note that I also use cpufreq-mangement, so my CPU ist normaly at 
2x1GHz, and
even streaming will not change a lot on that. 

Best Regards,

I'm thinking about the limitation of the NIC.
Sorry for my bad english I'm italian and I don't know how to express
my concepts.
In the same phisical machine I've configured a domU with a mail server.
The network traffic in and out of this server mail is not little.
I've others nic in the same machine perhaps I need to assign a
different nic to the virtual streaming server?
