comment Some Linux systems become very slow when Redis is loading a big dataset
Thanks mhdk, my guess is also that this is related to virtualization + Linux scheduler. Even with slow disk I/O I can't see any reason why other processes would block if they are not using the disk and have no swapped pages. Trying different kernels / scheduler configurations is probably worth a try indeed.
