Xen Clocksource

In older versions of Xemn, each DomU could effectively use the system time of the Dom0. That was remove after Xen 4 or so. In versions after that issues of clock drift need to be addressed. I was investigating this and came across a discussion of best practices about setting the Limux clocksource on DomU’s. It seems there has been some performance issues with using “xen” and a recommendation to use “tsc” but it’s not entirely straightforward.
