unless you are doing development and are way more handy than I am with a 
memory dump, you almost certainly want 'on_crash reboot'  

for sysadmin level debugging of DomUs, start xenconsoled with --log=all 
or so, and it will record the console  of the DomU, which is usually enough
to figure out what happened.
