This question is even more controversial when recursive virtualization is considered. In this paper,...

    Software Techniques for Avoiding Hardware Virtualization Exits

    On modern processors, hardware-assisted virtualization outperforms classical binary translation for most workloads. But hardware virtualization has a potential problem: virtualization exits are expensive. While hardware virtualization executes guest instructions at native speed, guest/VMM transitions can sap performance. Hardware designers attacked this problem both by reducing guest/VMM transition costs and by...

    Storage Workload Characterization and Consolidation in Virtualized Environments

    Server virtualization is accelerating the already existing need for shared storage area network (SAN) infrastructure for the associated benefits of migration, flexible management and economies of sharing. Understanding the characteristics of a workload in terms of access locality, IO sizes, read write ratio etc. is crucial for effective placement and...

    VIC: Interrupt Coalescing for Virtual Machine Storage Device IO

    Interrupt coalescing is a well known and proven technique for reducing CPU utilization when processing high IO rates in network and storage controllers. Virtualization introduces a layer of virtual hardware for the guest operating system, whose interrupt rate can be controlled by the hypervisor. Unfortunately, existing techniques based on high-resolution...

    Fast Restore of Checkpointed Memory Using Working Set Estimation

    In order to make save and restore features practical, saved Virtual Machines (VMs) must be able to quickly restore to normal operation. Unfortunately, fetching a saved memory image from persistent storage can be slow, especially as VMs grow in memory size. One possible solution for reducing this time is to...

    VSOM: A Framework for Virtual Machine-Centric Analysis of End-to-End Storage IO Operations

    Diagnosis of an I/O performance slow down is a complex problem. The root cause could be one among a plethora of event combinations such as VMware ESXi misconfiguration, an overloaded fabric switch, disk failures on the storage arrays, and so on. As a virtualization administrator, diagnosing the end-to-end I/O path...
