Yeah you are absolutely rite. Do you know any means to record the CPU consumption and IO consumption of DomU's on Dom0?

Thanks for the help.

To do that, give them root access to dom-0 and let them see their
running configuration.

Beyond that, there is no proof that can't be tainted. Welcome to
hosting :)

How would you give someone proof that they are one of only five accounts
on a shared server?

You might want to encourage clients to monitor iowait while doing brief
disk operations (i.e. dd) if they are morbidly curious, provided that
the backing storage is fast enough to keep up with the vcpus that xen is

BTW, removing xen-devel from the CC list, this is strictly a question
for xen-users.
