Performance profiling of virtual machines

  title={Performance profiling of virtual machines},
  author={Jiaqing Du and Nipun Sehrawat and Willy Zwaenepoel},
Profilers based on hardware performance counters are indispensable for performance debugging of complex software systems. All modern processors feature hardware performance counters, but current virtual machine monitors (VMMs) do not properly expose them to the guest operating systems. Existing profiling tools require privileged access to the VMM to profile the guest and are only available for VMMs based on paravirtualization. Diagnosing performance problems of software running in a virtualized… CONTINUE READING
