I'm migrating from Solaris 10 to linux. After having installed RH, I got some performance hit related to the network stack. I've switched back to Solaris where the problem is not present.
I'd like to figure out if this problem is inherent to RH, or if it plagues all flavors of Linux, so I'd like to install Suse to test.
doing a proper "hard install" is a bit too complicated, so I'm thinking about using Sun's VirtualBox to virtualize my Suse install..
question is the following: when running Suse as a GUEST OS on my Solaris HOST, which network stack will be used ? the GUEST one or the HOST one ? to which extent is it virtualized ?
(as I want to test the Suse network stack, I need to be sure it's the one that will be used)
