Slow network/disk performance when virtualized on a win2008 server with virtualbox
i virtualized on virtualbox installed on a win2008srv fog 0.33b.
i used lvm and dynamic virtual disk allocation.
The transfer rate uploading a image starts at 700MB/min but after some minutes lowers to 150MB/s.
someone know howto make this virtual system run faster?
One, add more CPU’s to it. On an upload process, it has to compress the image as it’s being uploaded.
Two, check the compression setting, it’s on the FOG Configuration->FOG Settings menu called: FOG_PIGZ_COMP and should appear as a slider bar. 9 is best/most compression (most cpu intensive and takes time) and 0 is the worst/fastest compression (less compression means more space is used)
