Is this guest to guest throuput issue resolved? 
What  is affecting guest to guest throughput? Since I have timer frequency 1000Hz and high resolution timer both enabled in my dom0. Also i am using cpu cores pinned for each VM an Dom0. Please guide me some more about getting increased throughput between guests.
