Example of cputune XML:

     <shares>2048</shares>

"shares" is to define the the proportional weighted cpu share
for the domain.

   Hum, what does "2048" there means ? I assume there is an unit but
it's not defined. Can we get a precide definition of the semantic of
the shares construct. If I were to use it I need to know what it means,
and I can't just from that description. Drivers in QEmu and LXC just
pass that down to linux, but it still doesn't provide a semantic for
it and "whatever linux implements at the time" is not really a good
answer.

The number is relative wrt other domains/cgroup, so if we have two VMs
each having 2048, both of them will get equal share, i.e. 50% each. In a
different scenario, if we have VM1's share as 1024 and VM2's share as
2048, that translates as VM1=33% and VM2=66% share of the CPU.

V2 posted with idea from Matthias, and borrow some text from virsh doc.
