I know it's against vmware licensing policy to publish benchmark data.
But all I was asking was kind of friend-to-friend recommendation, not
something you publish seriously on you blog. In fact, all I wanted to
know was a quick
/sbin/hdparm -t /dev/sda
test result inside and outside vm.
Using VirtualBox as an exmample, I don't think there will be a great
difference between the result of an expert and mine, of the comparative
figure between vm and host (but I could be wrong).
It's all evident based and it's a quick gauge, not some serious
measure. . . Anyway, it's totally OK for someone not give such result,
just trying to explaining my point here.
