I had two cores out of 16 dedicated to dom0, and 6GB of RAM out of 128. It
froze solid. I had to recycle the box. It died about 5 mins after the heavy
load started. Is there a simple to setup load simulator that can make me
reproduce it? I cannot call my clients again to send calls (this is a
telephony switch). I would like to capture the console over the network, but
from a PC, since I don't have another linux box available.

does it unfreze?  or does it stay frozen?  

if it unfrezes, try this command in the dom0  (I put it in /etc/rc.local
in the dom0)

xm sched-credit -d 0 60000

(you can do the same thing by dedicating a core to the dom0)
