My test system consists of two XCP 1.0 nodes plus an Ubuntu frontend running
OpenXenManager. The two XCP 1.0 nodes have both GigE and 10 GigE interfaces
but of interest is the 10 GigE.  My goal is to get wire speed on the 10 GigE
from guests running on each of the nodes. So far I have built CentOS 5.6
guests on both the nodes and I have brought up the 10 GigE interface between
the two. Performance is around 20% of wire. My assumption is that I need to
run para virtualized drivers. So that's my question, how do I set it up? So
far on each of the CentOS guests I've installed kmod-xenpv (yum install
kmod-xenpv*). Good so far? What next?

Thanks in advance!
