Multi-core architecture provides more on-chip parallelism and powerful computational capability. It helps virtualization achieve scalable performance. KVM (kernel based virtual machine) is different from other virtualization solutions which can make use of the Linux kernel components such as Completely Fair Scheduler (CFS). However, CFS treats the KVM threads as normal tasks without considering about their unique features such as thread allocation mechanism and lock inside guest virtual machine… CONTINUE READING
