Subject: xen-utils-common: xm save does not use compression
Date: Wed, 01 Aug 2007 00:00:15 +1000
Package: xen-utils-common
Version: 3.0.3-0-2
Severity: normal

gzip -3 compresses the Xen save files in a reasonably small amount of time
and makes them take less than half the space that they might otherwise
require.  On systems with an encrypted root filesystem and on systems that
have really fast CPUs if xm supported such compression then that would
increase the speed of xm save and xm restore as well as saving disk space.

Please make xm use compression, either the -3 equivalent of zlib or some
other method that uses a reasonably small amount of CPU time.
