Uhm.. for domU you specify:

memory = 1024

in the domU configuration file (/etc/xen/<guest>).

Xen is the *hypervisor*, so it has to use ALL the physical CPUs/cores,
to be able to schedule vcpus!!

Do you mean we can't specify xen to 4 cpus, and if we specify "nosmp" what does it mean
it will use *just* one physical core to schedule vcpus? and dom0 and domU just can use one core?

>    how to specify dom0 4 cpus

dom0_max_vcpus=4 for xen.gz in grub.conf.
 Specified options "dom0_max_vcpus=2" and "dom0_vcpus_pin".
Specified option "dom0_max_vcpus=2".

what's the difference? which performance will be higher?

vcpus = 5

>    can we specify dom0 to 1 cpu, at same time domU to 6 cpu

dom0_max_vcpus=1 dom0_vcpus_pin

in grub.conf for xen.gz.
