    Having a problem here. As we introduce more & more NUMA servers (basically any machine with more than one CPU that is AMD or the new Intel Nehalem) we find that XEN (guests) not being NUMA aware limits us.

    So now that KVM in mainline in RH 5.4 we want to look to a move to KVM as the guests have NUMA awareness.

    So, if we switch from Xen to KVM, will it break VPS licensing? Is cPanel KVM aware?

    I hope so as not being able to use NUMA for a VPS is a long term problem.

    Actually it does appear that 5.4 guests aren't numa aware, but watching the kv devel lists indicate it's going to be happening sooner than Xen.

    So, bump.
