We've been trying to investigate this problem for a while now. We have a Debian box on which at any point in time we run 5/6 VMs. Sometimes one the VMs just randomly go down and we detect this from a ping alert.

This happened this morning and I'm adding in here the xm dmesg output from dom0 (which was NOT what went down) and xm info. Has anyone seen this kind of behavior? Any other info I can provide that helps? And if that needs me to use some tools / commands, pls do let me know.
