It has weird hangs and then random CPU spikes that do a ton at once. While remoted into the VMs I get an update all at once then it hangs for another 20 seconds. When it lets it go through I get a CPU spike.
Basic server specs for the HW node is: 8 CPUs, 16GB ram 1TB HDD total iPERC6 raid 10
The VMs are barely used but I have them spec'd at VM 1: 4 CPUs, 4GB Ram
VM2: 4 CPUs 6GB ram
The HW node currently says it's total CPU usage is 11% AND Used Memory is at 63%out of 16GB
I'm new to this stuff so I'm not sure. I just recently installed this and set it all up.
UPDATE: I'm still experiencing the same problems, doesn't seem to be as often... TODAY I came into the office, noticed web applications were barely functioning.
I checked the SQL Server VM (windows 2k8 x64) and it was using 90% RAM (well Xen Center showed that). But when I got into the console, it didn't look like it had that much used in task manager.) So I'm thinking Xen Server was so hosed that it wasn't even updating that data regularly or something... who knows...?
How do I get DETAILED logs, when i click logs tab in Xen Center it's like a very basic "start / stop" log file... hmm
UPDATE: (please help) 4/6/2011 I've got it running for a couple weeks in between needing CORE server reboots... but this is still REALLY bad... thse are web servers...
I'm thinking I shouldn't have used 64BIT windows 2008? I'm running ColdFusion 8 32bit, and SQL Server 2005 32bit... could that be causing it?
