I've been running KVM for a few of the management servers at work, I've actually been very happy with it all around, and now want to move to the next phase, and deploy some heavy services (data-mining, ETL, etc) onto them.
I was wondering if anyone here has used KVM for something serious and has had any issues or comments.
I'm specifically interested in performance-related issues you've experienced (assuming that you've not had stability issues to begin with.
Formulating this for Q&A...
- Have you run KVM to host a resource-heavy service?
- If Yes to 1, have you had any stability issues?
- If Yes to 1 and No to 2, have you had any performance issues?
(When I get around to it, and I will eventually, I will push one of my LVMs into a very loaded (non-prod) environment, and I'll let you all know how it goes. The data mining services we run are as heavy as it can get, so I'm sure this test will be fruitful! =) - Meanwhile I'm still looking forward to more answers to the questions above from anyone who'd like to share. And big thanks to everyone who's responded so far.
