NetBSD virtio drivers performance
I have a VPS machine hosted by a KVM ( Linux Kernel Virtual Machine )
hoster in Germany which I am running happily since two years now a
I stumbled by chance on the fact that NetBSD 6 has virtio drivers ( by
reading a post ... announcin a gsoc project to port them to
so I decided to benchmark the virtio block driver with bonnie++.
The raw results are here (with BETA_2 binaries )
I tryed to concentrate myself on block writing performance, by using
sync mounts on the host, and I got reprocible results by trunning the
bonnie++ test three times in a row.
So short said , with the virtio driver, NetBSD writes at 25MB/s and
without it only 7MB/s.
However i noticed the inclusion of this driver was quite confidential
since I haven't found it in the list of changes:
Shouldn't it be here as well ?
