comment Is there a Windows equivalent of Unix 'CPU steal time'?
+1 for the thorough exploration indeed, highly appreciated. So regarding EC2 this apparently boils down to Unix/Linux guests running in Xen paravirtual mode, which is a paravirtualized domain (i.e. not full virtualization, the guest OS is modified to run on the host), where steal time is available, vs. Windows/FreeBSD/... guests running in Xen HVM, which is a hardware emulated domain (i.e. the guest OS is unmodified to run on the host), where it apparently isn't - so a definite negative answer, guess that's what counts. Do I read you correctly that it could get added eventually?

comment How can I make an AMI mount the same volume when it initializes?
Presumably you are wondering how to automatically attach the volume from an Amazon EC2 API level perspective (in contrast to how to mount it afterwards, which is a secondary OS level perspective)? I suggest to adjust the question accordingly in case.
