> **The host machine*
> Intel Core i5-4440 3.10GHz running at 3093 MHz
> 8 Gb of RAM (1x8)
> 500 Gb of Disk (seagate st500dm002 7200rpm)
> CentOS 7 (netinstall for the most updated and stable packages)
> **How i am testing:*
> I choose two benchmark tools, sysbench(epel-repo on centos) and
> novabench(for windows guest, https://novabench.com ), then i make a clean
> install of xenserver and create two guests(CentOS and Windows 7 SP1)
> **The Guest specs*
> 2 cores
> 4 Gb of RAM
> 60 Gb of disk (using virtIO in a NFS storage)
The nfs server is in the host?
> Important note: only the testing guest are up on benchmark and i have
> installed the drivers in guest
> **The Sysbench disk test(creates 10Gb of data and do the bench):*
> # sysbench --test=fileio --file-total-size=10G prepare
> # sysbench --test=fileio --file-total-size=10G --file-test-mode=rndrw
> --init-rng=on --max-time=300 --max-requests=0 run
> Host result: 2.9843Mb/sec
> Ovirt result: 1.1561Mb/sec
> Xenserver result: 2.9006Mb/sec
- Is this 2.9GiB/s or 2.9 MiB/s?
- Are you testing using NFS in all versions?
- What is the disk format?
- How do you test io on the host?
- What kind of nic is used? (1G, 10G?)
> **The novabench test:*
> Ovirt result: 79Mb/s
> Xenserver result: 101Mb/s
We need much more details to understand what do you test here.
- For ovirt, can you share the vm command line, available in
- For Xenserver - detailed description of the vm and the storage
