Re: [Xen-devel] about page cache architecture of the dom0 and domUs in xen platform

Hi,Pasi KÃrkkÃinen,
In most cases, I use "file:/..." or "tap:qcow2:..."  for my VMs.When I use "tap:aio:.." in the configuration,somgthing wrong will happen.At the first time I speculate that the blktap/blktap2 module is not installed successfully.Thus some time ago I try to figure out the problem.However I failed in the end.Could you tell me the difference between "file:" and "tap:aio" from the page cache architecture side?
The answer to this question is of importance for me.I need your help.Thank you.
