Thank you for your help.libvirt and virt-manager for management, has no artificiallimitations on memory, CPUs, guests etc., and is completely open source.Does Fedora 8 have any way to limit the network speed on the guests?
I assume, though I've not tried it, that you should be able to use ordinary Linux mechanisms such as the 'tc(8)' command to enforce a traffic control and shaping on the vifX.0 devices.
To be honest, it's a bit of an unusual request: mostly people complain about not getting enough network performance :-)
