Ticket #5633 (closed defect: worksforme)
Centos Host/Guest SMP imbalance and slow performance
|Reported by:||litz||Owned by:|
|Version:||VirtualBox 3.1.0||Keywords:||smp slow centos|
Host is Centos 5.3 (dual quad core Xeon, IBM x3650) Guest is Centos 4.8 configured for dual core SMP
Both Centos systems are stock, with updates from the centos and rpmforge repositories.
Guest runs very slow, performance is noticeably affected. /proc/cpuinfo in the guest shows a massive imbalance between the detected smp cores provided to the guest OS.
The same command on the host shows different results and values.
