VirtualBox performance hit

Postby half12 » 27. Nov 2010, 12:29


During a planned upgrade of my home computer I added an LSI SAS 9211-4i card to handle my RAID1 boot drive unfortunately after creating the logical drive, my system failed to boot with a "no enough memory to copy PCI Option ROM [80:01:00)". As a result of the failed upgrade, I had to re-install OpenIndiana b147and noticed how quick my computer was. After installing VirtualBox 3.2.10 again, the computer is so slow. I did not notice it before as I had installed other versions of VirtualBox installed and just upgraded each time.

Off topic, why are you using Raid1 for your system disc? That is not necessary. Do not use the raid card, and instead use ZFS mirror on your system discs. I suspect it will be quick again.
