pybench fails on Windows 7 64-bit guest

In order to compare performance, I was running pybench:

with Python 2.6.4. This is a pretty easy setup, just SVN checkout pybench and python should run a series of tests. However, when doing this with a Windows 7 64 bit guest on VB, I got an error during the "calibration" phase. Looking into the python code, it looks like the problem has to do with time keeping.

I did the same test using qemu-kvm and didn't have any problems.

Tried it with a win 7 32-bit guest and only one processor (had two previously). Calibration still fails.

One more piece of the puzzle. I ran this on a Windows 7 guest on vmware workstation and it also fails.

  • Status changed from new to closed
  • Resolution set to wontfix

So this is probably timing-related and there is not much we can do about it.
