Hello Martin,

Happy New Year !

We run our XS inside virtual machines. I have XS inside virtualbox on my
Lenovo T61 laptop 

Santa Rosa Core 2 DUO 2.0 Ghz 

while Solutiongrove runs a couple of XS installations inside VMWare ESXi

I'll try to get the hardware info where ESXi is installed from our
service provider.

ESXi has these fancy charts and graphs on usage and stuff about the
virtual machines running, I'll see if it's possible to extract that info
for you. Hopefully that data is still available.
