Long pauses in Visual Studio running on a Windows XP SP2 guest under Linux

Reported by: bifferos Owned by:
Priority: major Component: other
Version: VirtualBox 2.1.2 Keywords: pausing freezing performance GUI slow
Cc: Guest type: Windows
Host type: Linux


I've experienced regular pauses of up to 12 seconds on what I consider to be fairly capable hardware. For some reason such pauses seem to only affect the studio, and not the start menu. Work that one out.

Host: I've installed Slackware 12.0, Running Kernel (SMP), this is on a Dell Precision 380, Pentium D dual core with AMD-V. 2GB RAM 60GB of free disk space (120GB SATA drive)

Guest Settings:
Base memory: 617
Video memory: 12MB
ACPI: Enabled
(everything else): Disabled
Two SATA disks (C: and D:)
PIIX3 controller (I needed to use some old disk images, but this shouldn't matter when using SATA I think).

Guest: Windows XP SP2 + Intel Matrix Storage drivers + Visual Studio 2005 (service pack 1).

Forum reports indicate this is also an issue for 2.1.0

Please reopen if still relevant with VBox 3.1.2. Make sure to upgrade the guest additions to 3.1.2 as well.
