For 2 days, I keep wondering why Zope/Plone loads damn slow on the qemu machine eventhough I have allocated both cores of the processor, and 512RAM for it. 15 minutes simply to start up is really not desirable. I kept on investigating and guess what:
[root@unapcict ~]# /sbin/hdparm -t /dev/hda
Timing buffered disk reads: 18 MB in 3.03 seconds = 5.95 MB/sec
Just for a comparison, the host hdd's speed:
[root@Nobuyuki ~]# /sbin/hdparm -t /dev/sdc
Timing buffered disk reads: 174 MB in 3.01 seconds = 57.71 MB/sec
Darn.. So, thats what the reason. Dear lazywebs, anybody know how to improve the speed??.
