Ticket #3321 (closed defect: fixed)
EBP software pegs Windows guest at 100%
|Reported by:||rbroadbr||Owned by:|
I'm running an accounting software EBP on a Windows XP guest (vb 2.1.2) on a Ubuntu Hardy Heron host on a Dell Precision M4300. EBP used to run well under 2.0.6, but since migrating to 2.1.2 I'm having very large performance problems. These problems are particularly bad when using the reporting function of EBP.
After reviewing other comments on version 2.1.2 I tried activating the option "VT-x/AMD-V" and "Enable nested paging." These options seemed to not have an effect on system performance.
A reinstall of the Guest Add-Ons seemed to slightly improve performance, however I don't have any concrete mesurements of this "improvement."
Based on another ticket that I read I'll mention that the EBP software runs its own Windows service entitled, "EBP Pervasive.SQL".
I'd be happy to provide further problem analysis information if someone/people would like to ask for specific pieces of information that would potentially further clarify what is going on in my vbox.
