Virtualbox Optimisations etc
« on: June 22, 2012, 09:38:00 PM »
I have a fully working virtualbox on my sme 8 server (32 bit)

i notice ithis in the phpvbox main page of the server

Quote
Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-3770 CPU @ 3.40GHz (8)
HWVirtEx, PAE, Long Mode (64-bit)

I assumed that the hardware virt options etc wouldnt work as im not running a proper virtual server host (ie xen, esxi etc)

Is sme allowing the use of hardware paravirt etc? Im not 100% on the terminology mind.

But the main reason i ask is the sme guests seem to lag a bit considering the hardware (7 x 2 Tb drives in raid 6, 16 gig ram and an ivy bridge i7 3770) i dont think its a host issue as when it was resyning its array at install it was running at 122 meg a sec resync.

Im assuming that as its 32 bit sme that the above info is erroneous and its working like the old vmware server did under sme?

Many thanks

James
