The following is the output of running "strace -c /bin/sh -c /bin/echo foo" on both systems. An open call runs averagely 109 usec on standard Linux but only 41 usecs on XenLinux. An stat64 call runs75 usecs on standard Linux but only 19 usecs on XenLinux.The Xen VM runs on the same physical machine as the standard Linux. It uses loopback files in dom0 as the backends of VBDs.Any insight is highly appreciated.And are you using the same Loopback file-system when running nativeLinux? If not, it's probably the main cause of the difference.
No, the native Linux runs on a regular linux machine and use the raw hard disk partitions. Xuehai _______________________________________________ Xen-devel mailing list Xen-devel@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx http://lists.xensource.com/xen-devel
