Start more than 2 VMs with bridged Network failed with slow time/ticker

Reported by: zooplus Owned by:
Priority: major Component: network
Version: VirtualBox 2.2.2 Keywords:
Cc: Guest type: Linux
Host type: Solaris


My System:



X86_64 with Solaris 10u6 + VirtualBox 2.2.2

The VirtualBox runs in a Non Global Zone with added /dev/vboxdrv

When i start the vm:

VBoxManage startvm vm2 --type vrdp

Than will slow down the ticker on VM1, that already startet.

I check the time with follow script on client:

#!/bin/sh while $x; do

sleep 1;date


When i stop the second vm, the time are runs fine again on vm1.

Guest(s): Linux 2.6.18-128 (Centos 5.3), with 64bit

Same bug with Vbox 2.2.4

CPU: Intel Xeon X5460.

It is also not possible to start the VM on a AMD Opteron System, but this is maybe a kernel problem on linux site :-)

There seems to be a major issue with Bridged networking for VirtualBox Guests.

My configuration is: AMD Quad core 9550 4 GB memory gigabit NIC. OpenSolaris Host running 2 guests Fedora and XP.

Web site tested

Open Solaris 64 bit 15 megs down 5 megs up.

On a fedora 64 bit guest same test I get 2 megs down 5 megs up

ON an XP 32 bit guest I get 3.5 megs down 2 megs up

Why such a difference.
