[Xen-devel] xen vs. uml benchmarks


I have a question about the benchmarks published on the Xen website, mainly
how UML was benchmarked. My point is that the details aren't described
anywhere, and there are several tricks which dramatically improve UML
performance, mainly IO-Latency and scheduling.

So, here comes:
- what was the data, such as rootfs, in reality? was it a raw partition or an
  ubd or hostfs (or whatever)?
- was the UML memory saved on tmpfs?
- was swap used inside the guest, again was it raw or ubd or whatever?

Anyway, Xen benchmarks look very impressive.
