Should I create a file on Dom0 and assign it for a DomU for use as swap space or should I just overcommit my system RAM and have Dom0 handle all of the swap?
You can't overcommit memory in XEN like in VMWare.
What happens with swap space during a live move if I use a file per DomU. Does the move script copy the swap file over as well?
Live move should copy all data disks, which inculdes swap.
