This paper explores the relationship between I/O scheduling in a virtual machine monitor (VMM) and performance of Map Reduce applications running on the virtual machines (VMs). Traditionally, Map Reduce applications running on the virtual machines perform worse than on the physical machines due to competing for I/O. In this paper, we discuss the effect of I… CONTINUE READING
