Default Google Webmaster Tools

Google Webmaster Tools are pretty good and they will help you understand the issues that are causing the problem with your site map. I was having some issues with the 301 redirects for my www. and non-www and the Webmaster tools was able to walk me through the fix.

Hope that helps

Submitting a perfectly valid sitemap doesn't guarantee indexation.

If pages aren't robust enough, don't have enough unique content and aren't well linked (internally and externally), Google may not index them.

Have you started the basic optimization for your website. These will help in indexing your site much sooner. Submit your site in different search engines to make it popular.

I think this would be the main reason why your site are not all being indexed. We should be created enough to have unique contents on our site.

Open up an account with Google Webmaster Tools...submit your website and sitemap. Google will alert you of any issues. I would also build some light links to your pages, like social bookmarks. This usually helps with indexing.

There's no guarantee that all sitemap links got indexed. It all depends on the webmaster. So I suggest you should do more offpage SEO to boost all of those sitemap links.

If you have a website that takes much time to load, you may face the issues with indexing, specially the inner pages. Resolve issues like Robots.txt, url parameters, .htsaccess etc. to get your pages indexed easily.

My pages get indexed in a few day with no issues.

It's all about unique content that can't be found elsewhere.

First of all your content needs to unique, useful and relevant. Try to optimize your site as per google instruction so that google can find,crawl, and index your site. You will find a lot of helpful information concerning this matter, here on google https://support.google.com/webmasters/answer/34444
