Very slow virtual machine
Posted on 2008-10-06
I virtualized all my domain network and today i finally complete all migration from phisical serl ver in to virtual. My virtual network is made bye one phisical Server with the following specs:
Gigabit Motherboard support up to 16 GB of Memory 4 GB installed 800 MHz
Dual Core AMD 3.0 GHz 2mb cache
1gb ethernet lan
Sata disk 10000rpm configured in mirror (Mirror capacity 250 GB)
The Virtual machine are four
Two Domain Controller with 512 GB each of Virtual ram and 20 GB each of virtual scsi disk
One member Server with exchange server 2003 installed 1,3 GB of virtual ram (I migrated the exchange from previous phisical Server)+ 20 GB of Virtual SCSI disk
One other member server configured as Terminal server with 512GB of Virtual memory and 20 GB of virtual scsi disk.
So apparently i am consuming less then three GB of memory of the 4 GB available.
General slow performance on all Virtual Machine especially the Exchange Server Virtual machine.
I cannot access owa I can connect to it authentication is fine but the mails are not downloaded
If I access the TS very slow performance.
Also within the lan doesn't matter if i use the local VMware console or the remote desktop when i try to access the virtual machine performance is incredibily slow if i try to work on TS do simple operation like open dialog box or windows it's all slow.
This is due to memory issue i guess but i thought that four GB of memory was enough.
So is this a memory issue?
