Description (last modified by )
My experience using VirtualBox is significantly degraded because many times a day (sometimes more often than others), the whole virtual machine (or individual programs) will freeze, sometimes for as long a as a minute. In the system monitor I could see that the system was in IOWAIT, so I ran latencytop.
I have attached a screenshot for one of the shorter freezes, but I have seen the wait as long as 45,000 seconds.
