Ticket #3204 (closed enhancement: fixed)
Performance improvement on Windows XP SP3 host OS/fixed in 2.1.4
|Reported by:||gmuthu||Owned by:|
It will be great if the CPU utilization (while running a guest OS) on a Windows (XP SP3) host OS can be improved further.
My PC is running Pentium 4 CPU 2.4 GHz with 2 GB of memory (pretty low-end by today's standards, I know). I primarily use Virtualbox to test out Solaris/OpenSolaris.
After starting a guest OS (I run only one at a time), the CPU util. shoots upto 100% and remains there (observed thru taskmanager). It hardly comes down. The guest OS is assigned 1 GB of RAM (not worried about the guest OS memory consumption as it is expected).
Why I think the performance can be improved: Vmware Server 2.0. While during the booting of the guest OS, the cpu util too reaches 100%, but it drops down to 30-40% range once the OS is up.
If this can be achieved with Vbox, it will be great.
I have not tried 2.1.2 yet.
- Summary changed from Performance improvement on Windows XP SP3 host OS to Performance improvement on Windows XP SP3 host OS -> retry with 2.1.4
