Thanks for running benchmarks!

Just for clarity, are you running this in dom0 (not in a VM), correct?

If you are running the test in a VM, is it a PV or an HVM guest? What is
the guest kernel version? What is the vcpu and memory configuration?
And finally, what are you using as the disk image (file or LVM)?
