I'm currently working on getting multiple UMLs up and going on a single host.


What I am currently wrestling with now is the following:


Should each UML instance be run from a separate user account on the host or should you use a single user to launch all the UML instances?


I am thinking that having separate users would make it easier to kill a UML process that was not responding, but have a single user seems easier from the standpoint of using screen to get to the console.


All these guests have to talk to the rest of the network, so I will have bridging between them and the rest of the world. I've successfully run 4 UMLs at once on this host, each guest had a separate IP, and I was able to ping/ssh to them. I'm planning on having somewhere from 10 to 14 guests on this hosts, if that matters.


Thanks for any input on how to best handle this.
