Very slow Apache request time when reading files in a Shared Folder on a Liunx guest

Reported by: PabloSerbo Owned by:
Priority: major Component: shared folders
Version: VirtualBox 4.0.4 Keywords: apache performance
Cc: Guest type: Linux
Host type: other


I run a team of 10 developers who run either Snow Leopard, Windows 7 or Ubuntu as their host OS. We all run the same Ubuntu Lucid LTS guest to run our LAMP stack. We need to share /var/application from our hosts to our guests. If we use Shared Folders, apache will only server 180 request on static content. If we switch to a Samba or NFS share the we get 3-6 times the performance.

This problem, existed with our previous Debian, Ubuntu guests. I have tried importing the guest into VMWare Fusion and response time using their Shared Folders is very quick.

You can find more details about the problem here:

If you need more information about our setup or strace outputs from apache, I can provide these upon request.

We have a similar issue with Windows 7 host and CentOS guest.
