VMware's published a paper on ESX vs. Xen (Enterprise) multi-nic performance:


Basically, it tests network performance from a Windows 2003 guest under Xen and VMware, and compares the results.

Just curious if there's any work in progress that would improve this? I'd also love to see the test repeated with a Linux PV guest versus the fastest way to run a Linux guest on VMware to see how the performance is there. :)

I'd aso be very curious to hear if VMware consulted with XenSource to ensure that their benchmarking configuration was optimal, as VMware requires you to do to publish benchmarks on ESX:
